The Mad Reviewer is Closed to Submissions (Temporarily)

With so many requests coming in as well as my own not-so-great health, I’ve decided to close submissions for reviews from authors until the fall.  This will give me more time to focus on my health, but also to catch up on those authors who have been waiting and waiting for months while I’ve only had time to process the numerous review requests I’ve received.  If you got your request into me before 8:26am MST I’ll still process it.

There are, however, two exceptions for the closed submission policy:

1.  If you’re an author who has a series and I’ve read your first book and liked it, you are free to submit your second book for review.  If I like that, then your third book and so on and so on.  This is so I don’t forget the characters’ names in a series, let alone half of the plot points before I get to finish it!

2.  If you are a publisher contacting me to review an ARC or galley copy as long as it is a print copy I will process your request.   This is because I usually have more time to read print copies.

For those of you wondering, I will likely be re-opening for business sometime in the fall.

    As a reviewer and a person on disability..as well as debut author, I can certainly understand. I had to suspend my reviews in January too. My queue is so extensive, I have about a year’s worth in there right now..at least! Best of luck to you and I hope you get feeling better soon! 🙂

    Thank you for the etiquette guidelines and giggles. I review, sometimes up to a couple of books a week, and also beta read for a few friends. Happy to report I’ve never had an author dictate to me how to write a review, and as an indie myself, am happy for any feedback from readers. I do hope your health improves soon.
