Last year, the holiday season kicked my butt. By the time Black Friday rolled around, I was exhausted and it didn't let up until New Year's. My reading and blogging took a major hit. So this year, I will be updating my review policy for the holiday season.
From now until January, I will be closed to review requests.
What does this mean? I will not be taking any review requests that will require me to read and review the novel between now and New Year's. Basically, if you have a book releasing between now and February, I will not have the time or resources to read/review in a timely manner.
The only exception will be authors that I have previously worked with who have a release within the holiday season, although I will be taking those on a case by case basis.
This does not affect requests I received prior to today, and I promise I am working my hardest to catch up.
Also, if you have a review request for February or later, feel free to e-mail me before New Year's. But these will also be taken on a case by case basis, and will mostly depend on what my hours look like after the holiday season and how well I caught up over the holidays.
And just an FYI, somewhere between February and April, I will be moving so this may factor into my decisions as well.
Thank you so much for understanding and enjoy the holidays!
