About Babblings And My Review Policy
Who am I? I’m an eccentric redhead reader and reviewer. I also write romance under the name KT Grant.
What is Babbling About Books and More? Babblings is a book and entertainment blog that has been active since September 2008. It’s a site that reviews books, highlights authors and posts opinion pieces about the publishing and entertainment industry. Best known the Sunday’s WTFckery for Not? You Decide posts.
Author, Publicists and Publishers: I review mainly genre fiction titles. My top genres I enjoying reviewing are Romance, Young Adult, GLBT Romance and Horror. I will make exceptions to the rule if a book blurb and/or excerpt really makes an impression. This also includes certain self-published titles. I cannot promise I will accept every single review submission, but I will try my best. I do try to average three book reviews a week. I will give the most honest review possible, even if the book didn’t work for me. I will not sugarcoat a review.
I also accept digital galleys/ARCs for review such as a site like NetGalley.
Grading: I grade on a scale from A-F. I grade on overall plot, characters and writing.
Timing: I will try to the best of my ability to reply in a timely fashion to any book review requests, and post a review for a book within three months of it’s release and up to a month prior to a book’s release if I am given a galley or ARC.
Upon request I will include my total number of traffic numbers for the week or month.
Regarding P2P Fan Fiction: If an author or publisher sends me a book that is former fan fiction, known as pulled to publish fan fiction and doesn’t indicate it as such, I will automatically lower my grade or not accept at all. Publishing fan fiction and making a profit on it is wrong, IMO.
