We are currently not accepting new review requests due to other obligations and busy schedules.
At Rarely Dusty Books we accept requests for m/m romance. We seldom consider reviewing m/f, m/m/f or f/f stories. We enjoy all sub-genres of m/m.
We happily accept review copies of all formats, but our preferred format is ePub.
If you are an author or publisher and would like to have us review your book(s), please email Janna at rarelydustybooks [at] gmail [dot] com.
We currently have three reviewers at Rarely Dusty Books: SharonS, Lis and Janna (aka Mrs Rarely Dusty).
Please include the following info in your request: Book title, Author, Book format, Number of pages/word count, Genre & keywords, A short description of the book or the blurb, Link to author website, Link to publisher website.
We will only accept requests for books that appeal to us based on the provided information, however acceptance does not guarantee a review.
Neither can we guarantee the review will be positive, but when writing a negative review, the reviewer strives to explain why the book did not work for her as clearly and objectively as possible. We will always try to be honest and fair.
Besides our review we also post: a brief summary (taken from goodreads); the book cover; publisher, release date, series name; author website link; Goodreads link; purchase link.
If the reviewer isn't able to finish the book we won't post a review. We’ll only review books that we’ve read from cover to cover.
If for any other reason (like those pesky personal lives getting in the way) we are not able to review your book, we will at the very least try to feature it on our blog.
Reviews will not only be posted on our blog, but may also be posted on: Goodreads and Twitter. We do not send out email notifications to authors when a review has been posted.
We post approximately 2 reviews a week, and seldom on the weekends. We cannot guarantee a review within a specified time following release. Our time-frame is normally within 3-6 months, depending on the content of a book, how many books we’re reviewing at the time and other commitments on the reviewers’ part.
If you have other questions, please feel free to e-mail us at rarelydustybooks [at] gmail [dot] com.
