-- to be published on Road to Romance only. Acceptance will be based on having a
reviewer available for your book, and reviewers always have the choice of what they
If you send a book unsolicited, even if we've reviewed you in the
past, the reviewer receiving the book is under no obligation to do the review.
Furthermore, we will not return the book to you unless you make arrangements
before hand. You will be paying for
packaging, postage and any other costs incurred.
No review books will be returned unless prior
arrangements are made with me BEFORE the book is posted to the reviewer. All costs
for packaging and post will be incurred by the author making the request.
If you make a review request and we find
a reviewer for you, please reply that you've received our note about
sending the book. We'll attempt to contact you twice, and after
that won't be responsible for doing the review. It will come off the
list and the request will be considered void.
RTR will review genres outside romance
that are complimentary to the genre. It's up to management to
decide what is complimentary and what isn't. RTR accepts books for
review in the following genres: all romance sub-genres, series
romance, women's fiction, mystery/suspense, non-fiction/self-help if
it's relevant to women. We no longer accept erotic or highly
accepted but some reviewers won't take ebooks -- it's their choice. Galleys and
ARC's are fine, bound or not. Please don't request a review before your
book is edited and as ready for publication as possible. If you
are waiting on the final editing and the major changes have already been
made, we'll consider it. The review is of the book that readers
will read -- major editing can change a book, meaning if we review it
prior to that we're not reviewing the same book.
The information posted on a review cannot
be changed once the review is posted. The exceptions to this are
typos or information in the review that is incorrect and our fault.
We apologize in advance for those -- stuff happens.
other sites, all the reviewers at Road to Romance volunteer their
time. We will try to get your book done in a timely manner,
however I won't set deadlines for the reviews to be done. The usual turn around can be anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks from the time
the reviewer gets the book.

PERSON FOR ROAD TO ROMANCE HAS CHANGED. IF YOU SEND US BOOKS
AUTOMATICALLY, PLEASE CLICK

ALSO NOTE: WE ARE NO
LONGER ACCEPTING REVIEW REQUESTS FOR EROTICA/HIGHLY SENSUAL BOOKS.
NOTE: All reviews posted on the site are our
reviewers opinion, unpaid and un-influenced by the author or publisher. All recommended
or featured books are the choices of our reviewers. Interviews are
granted when our interviewer wants to grant them. Banner ads are paid
advertising and do not suggest endorsement by RTR in any way. On the main
site, book covers are placed at my leisure. They are all books available
through Amazon.com, as this generates money for the site. These are not
endorsements of one book over another, and at this time will not be placed
at anyone's request.
Advertising options can change at any time.
For all free services,
a link to The Road to Romance from your site is requested. I ask that you mention contests
in newsletters and on your site, and remove links to the contests promptly afterwards.
Reviews, once sent to you by the review coordinator, can be used in part or full
for promotion as long as The Road to Romance is credited, preferably with the reviewers
full name in every place that it's used. No one is authorized to add a
star-type rating to RTR reviews.
