Book Reviews and FTC Disclaimer

An avid reader and writer, one perfect way for me to use my skills is through book reviewing.  I currently review books for multiple publishing houses and reviewing sites, and I also work directly with authors to read and review their upcoming novels.


  • contemporary/historical general market and Christian fiction
  • contemporary/historical general market and Christian romantic fiction
  • women’s literature & “chick lit”
  • young adult (at my discretion)

*Note that I do not accept solicitations for erotica, fantasy, or children’s books. Thank you!

I love to connect with authors, so please write me through my contact page if you would like to discuss reviewing opportunities.


The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires by law that reviewers include a disclosure for reviewing books that have been given to readers for free. This disclosure eliminates any chance of readers considering that a reviewer has written a positive review for anything less than pure honesty. FTC law wants this disclosure to ensure that all readers understand reviewers have been given the book for the purpose of a truthful review regardless of the publishers or authors giving the book away for free.

The following are my statements in regards to an FTC disclaimer:
