Review Policy

Welcome to Kat's Book Buzz and thank you for your interest in my site.  If you are a publisher or an author interested in sending me a book for review, please refer to the section below to ensure that the book you would like me to review is a good fit.

What do I read?

I enjoy Literary, Contemporary and Mainstream Fiction, some Chic-Lit, Teen/YA, New Adult, Paranormal, Dystopian, Fantasy, and some Science Fiction.  I'm always open to suggestions and always looking to discover an author or series that I can fall in love with.  I don't read horror, erotica, or middle grade.  I have two young sons and would be willing to review children's books if they are appropriate for my family, as I will review the books based on the reaction of my children.  Other genres I will consider upon request.

I accept physical copies of books, as well as ebooks.  I only accept PDF files in extraordinary circumstances.  I am open to reviewing self-published authors, provided that the book is easily accessible to the public and I think it is a good fit with my personal interests. 

What to Include With a Request

Please include author, title and publication information, as well as a synopsis of the book.  Cover art photo would also be appreciated.  If you have a specific review deadline in mind, please advise the review request.  I do my best to accommodate these dates, when possible.  If I cannot make the deadline, I will let you know and you can decide how to proceed.  Unfortunately, I cannot accept every request, but I will do my best to respond to them all. 

What to Expect from a Review

All reviews will be my personal opinion on the book.  Please click on my Rating System page for information on my personal ratings and my philosophy when reviewing books.  I do not receive compensation for reviews, and will clearly mark when a complimentary copy of a book has been received for review.  I will provide an estimate of how long it will take me to read and review the book.  I reserve the right to change those dates if the need arises.  If the book is an ARC, I will strive to post a review the week before the publication date.

Reviews will include cover art, author and publication details, a synopsis, review, and final rating.  Additional information, such as author interviews, book tours, etc. can be added upon request.  I will always strive to be respectful in my reviews, even if the book just wasn't to my liking.  I am willing to help authors promote their books on my blog through interviews, guest posts or giveaways.  Please include any ideas in your review request.  Reviews will be cross-posted to Goodreads. 

Thank you again for your interest, and I look forward to hearing from you.
