If you are an author or publisher and would like Lounging With Books to review your book, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Both print books and ebooks are accepted but since I live in Europe the shipment cost can be pricy. In ebooks the preferred format for me is epub, but any other format will do.
Lounging With Books reviews romance novels, the preferred subgenres are Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance, Historical Romance, Paranormal Romance, Romantic Suspense, Erotica and Fantasy Romance. I am not a fan of the Young Adult genre or straight up Fantasy, but I am open to try books of those or other romance subgenres if the blurb appeals to me.
Lounging With Books is an independent review blog, therefore I will always give my honest opinion about a story and I stand by my rating, it will not be changed in any way after I reviewed a book. But I do not write bash reviews, if I do not like a story I will explain in my review why or what did not work for me.
Most of the books I review for Lounging With Books I own, I always mention in my review if I received the book from an author/publisher for a review. My rating for a story will be based on various things like the build-up of plotlines, characterization, the development of the romance, the balance of the story, my own emotional investment and joy while reading a story and the author's voice.
When you make your request please include the title of the book, genre, if it is part of a series and the format. Please note that I am situated in Europe, my native tongue is not English, small grammar errors may occur in my reviews. But I do try to avoid them as much as possible and I do spelling checks. Reviews will be posted 6 - 8 weeks after I receive the book depending on how busy I am, ARC reviews will be posted one week before the release date. If you prefer a different time frame we can always discuss this. All my reviews will be posted at my blog, Amazon and Goodreads, I also use Twitter and Facebook to announce my reviews.
