- I still have many titles left over from 2010 and have not been good about my goal to only accept a title per month in the new year.
- My personal library numbers at 3000+ books (fiction and non-fiction) and I really want to be able to get to the great titles I already own.
- Most importantly, I want/need more time to concentrate on my writing. I want to get this first novel written, darn it!
Here is my new review policy which is located in my 'About' tab:
I am no longer accepting review copies for The True Book Addict except in rare cases and with the exception of historical fiction. I will still accept historical fiction titles for review, especially titles set in medieval or ancient times. My reasoning behind this distinction is due to my desire to establish this blog more prominently in the historical fiction niche. Publicists and authors are welcome to contact me with review requests at truebookaddictATgmailDOTcom. However, be advised that I will turn down a very high percentage of offers.
My one exception, as you read above, is historical fiction. I'm still working on establishing this blog with a more historical focus, as my favorite genre is historical fiction. By no means does this mean that HF will be the only genre I'll be reading.
I am committed to review books through June/July and hope by then I will be free to start reading from my HUGE library. All review obligations will be completed as promised. Also, I will still be participating in the book tour sites, Jennifer's Crazy Book Tours and Amy's (Passages to the Past) Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours. Also, every two months, I will be reviewing a book and participating in an internet radio author chat with Angels and Warriors.com. Finally, I will still be co-hosting/authoring the blog, Historical Fiction Connection, with Marie from The Burton Review.
Whew...what a relief! I really feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. How about you? Are you thinking of making any changes in your blogging?
