Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept gifted opportunities?

No, I no longer accepted gifted opportunities.


Why do you no longer accept gifted opportunities?

Gifted opportunities are easy to come by, and while they have led to some great opportunities for me I feel the time has come for me to realise my own worth and be compensated accordingly.


I think your prices are wrong; they should be higher/lower.

You are welcome to your opinion, however, my price guidelines were put together after considerable thought and research. I am happy with them at the moment.

Why do you only offer free reviews for books? Other small businesses struggle as well.

In the book blogging world it is considered rude to ask for payment for books to review due to the nature of the publishing business. That is one thing that led me to make that decision. I’m also an aspiring writer myself, and I have several friends who are independent authors so I’m really aware of just how much work they put into publicising a book. Authors really don’t make as much money as people think, and a lot of the work they have to do themselves especially if they’re independent (indie) authors who self-publish. I’m just helping out where I can 🙂


Hey, I’d love to work with you but I have no budget!

I really appreciate you thinking of me, and I understand what it’s like to run with a small budget because basically that is what I’m doing! I wouldn’t expect you to work for free so it’s not really fair for you to ask me to do the same. This blog is my business and I can no longer just give my time up for free. I do offer interviews which give you a chance to promote your business, but otherwise I’m sorry but no freebies.
