Review Policy

For Readers:

I strive for truth and integrity with all reviews and posts. Unless otherwise noted, all books I review are purchased by me or borrowed from the library. If a book has been sent to me by a publisher, it will be thus noted. The receipt of these books, however, is the only compensation I receive. No matter how a book comes into my possession, I will review it honestly. The receipt of free and/or advanced copies does not effect my review or opinion. 

For Publishers, Publicists, and Authors:

Please read through carefully before submitting a request.

When I consider a title for review, I only accept requests from publishers and publicists. I am not open to reviewing self-published books, nor will I accept review requests directly from authors. Should I accept a title for review, I will only review physical copies.

Whether I have requested the title myself or agreed to accept an unsolicited title, I cannot guarantee that a review will be posted. By accepting the book, I agree to consider the title for review. Fuelled by Fiction is a project of passion and I don’t necessarily make it through every book I receive—though I try. I do my best to read all the books I accept, and review many of the books that I do. However, generally all books I receive will be mentioned in some way either here, on social media, or on Book Riot.

I am happy to participate in blog tours, post guest posts, conduct author interviews, and/or host giveaways. However, I am not interested in participating in blitzes of any kind or anything else that may be considered spam. I am also not interested in participating in cover reveals unless they are exclusive. I will not post promotional material unless I have read and enjoyed the book, or other work by that author.

In very select cases, I will also review things other than books. If your product is related to books or reading, or would benefit readers, I may consider it for review.

Before submitting a request, please have a look around Fuelled by Fiction to get a feel for the type of book that would fit.

Here are the types of books I generally enjoy and review (both adult and YA):

  • General fiction
  • Literary fiction
  • Psychological thriller
  • Historical fiction
  • Fantasy

Please do not make your request via social media. I will not respond. In your request by email, you should include all book details—title, author, summary, release date, page count, etc. Please also include any other relevant information such as why you think this title is a good fit for Fuelled by Fiction and your desired timeline. Please keep in mind that I will only consider requests well in advance.
