SURVEY: Authors and Review Policies

As a blogger, I know that one of the biggest book blogging struggles is receiving countless review requests, some of which sound great, only to realise most of them have disregarded our review policy. I don't accept eBooks for review and never have, simply because I don't have a Kindle and don't want one, yet I would say at least 80% of the requests I get offer the books in eBook format.

One of my previous posts is a general guide for authors to help them with how to approach bloggers and what not to do, but I'd love to get an author's perspective on book blogs and review policies, which is why I'm here with another one of my surveys.

As usual, the results will be published here at a later date but it is completely anonymous. There are two separate surveys, one for authors and one for bloggers. If you're a blogger and a published author, feel free to do both surveys (optional).

Please only do the author survey if you send out review requests, or if you have done previously.
Please only do the blogger survey if you have been blogging for a month or longer.


  1. I get so few since I changed my email address that I still have no policy posted on my blog. However, Goodreads is another problem. I am constantly getting PMs there.

  2. This is a great idea, I can't wait to see the results! :)
