More Changes

Autumn Leaves

I used Grammarly to grammar check this post, because it sometimes sounds right in my head but after I click “Publish” mistakes suddenly appear. (My computer must have gremlins because it can’t possibly be my fault.)

I have made some additional changes to my review blog! Starting now, I will now accept review books mainly through Awesome Indies. This fits in with more opportunities on the Awesome Indies site, where independent authors can have their books evaluated by industry professionals against specific criteria for quality fiction & deemed to be of the same quality of craftsmanship as books published by mainstream publishing houses . Most of the books I review are indie books anyway, so this gives us a streamlined approach. I will still consider traditionally-published books. Visit my Review Policy page for more details.

How will independent/self-published books get onto my review list through Awesome Indies? I have placed a link on my Review Policy page where you can find the contact information to put your book under the eyes of multiple Awesome Indies reviewers! I may choose your book, or another AI reviewer may choose it. These changes provide you a better opportunity to get a review and give me an easier time finding great books to review.

If your book is already on my review list, I will still read and review your book. If your independent book is still on my list but you would prefer to submit through Awesome Indies, please let me know so I can adjust the list.

Thank you for sharing all your great books with me! As an author myself, I know how important your book is to you and I am honored you have asked me to share it.

Attention: New review policy

Please notice the changes on my Review Policy page. As of today, I am fitting my review policy to match the standards for  Awesome Indies. Whether or not your books are independent books, this is how I’ll review them. If I have reviewed your book in the past and have given you a four- or five-star rating (which I choose on Amazon, Goodreads, or other sites with the star-rating option), but have not submitted you to Awesome Indies, this is a mistake. Please send me an email and I’ll send it in to them.

If your book is already on the Review List, I will give you wiggle-room with these rules. When I email you with your review, please let me know if there is anything you don’t want from the new policy.

If your book is an independent book on the list, please be sure to let me know that when I send you your review so that I can be sure to send it to Awesome Indies if it qualifies.

Thanks for understanding,

Kate Policani
