Thank you for your interest in Midnight Bloom Reads and taking the time to read my policies regarding reviews, giveaways and privacy.
First of all, this blog is a fun way for me to express my love of reading and hopefully share it with others! I’m not compensated in any monetary fashion for the content I post nor am I affiliated with any booksellers.
If you have any questions, concerns, or would simply like to contact me, please do so at: email@example.com
To any authors or publishers, I would be more than happy to accept review copies or join in blog tours, and host contests and author interviews.
For those novels I do accept for review, I will try my best to review the novel within a timely manner but like most people, time does get the best of me sometimes. Please be understanding if a review is not posted immediately on the release date.
I would never dream of selling an ARC and I don't own an e-reader, which makes it rather difficult for me to read e-books or pdf files of novels. Sorry!
For any of my reviews (whether purchased, received for review from a publisher, etc.), I will always provide honest feedback and these opinions are strictly my own. Will I always fall in love with a book?... Well, no. However, I will always try to find balance when writing a review because while I may not like a book, I don't want to be the one who stops a person that could feel otherwise. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I'll respect yours if you'll respect mine.
I mainly read YA fiction novels, ranging anywhere from paranormal and urban fantasy to romance and chick-lit. Those are just some examples; I'm usually open-minded. I also read adult novels from time to time... usually those with crossover appeal. I will only on occasion read self-published novels.
The summaries used in this blog are taken from either Chapters/Indigo, Goodreads, Amazon.ca, the publisher, or the author's website.
I will be posting reviews from this blog to the Chapters/Indigo Online Community (where I've been given the Most Helpful badge as a top contributor) as well as Goodreads.
Since I have been holding a growing number of giveaways on this blog, I would like to set a general guideline of what to expect of the contests I host.
- On the giveaway post, I will always indicate who the contest is open to and the deadline to enter.
- All giveaways are open to those 13 years of age or older.
- I will email the winner(s) for their mailing address once a contest finishes.
- I will mail out prizes within 1-3 weeks of the completion of a giveaway.
- I am not responsible for items lost in the mail. Although it is unfortunate if this happens to occur, it is something that is entirely out of my control.
- I hold the right to disqualify any entries as I see fit.
Your private information will never be given away on this blog. However, if you leave your email address in the comments section, I have no way of protecting against another individual using it. There is really no need for you to leave your email in the comments section anyways!
If you win a giveaway on the blog, I will send an email requesting your mailing address solely for the purposes of the contest. It will not be shared or distributed in any form. The only exception to this is in the case of a publisher offering to give the prize away. Your mailing address will then be passed onto the publisher so they may send it to you.
