www.sikreviews.com and www.sikreviews.net will be hereinafter referred to as “blog” or “SiK Reviews“.

Review Policy

Some books I read and review come directly from publishers and authors. But mostly, I buy my books from legal ebook purchasing sites. Please note, however, that I am not paid to review any of these books.  The only thing I receive in exchange for a review is the Advanced Reader’s Copy (ARC) or a copy of the book that has been either gifted or transferred by the author/promoter/author assistant/publisher.  Everything I say about a book is my own opinion.  I, Karen, am the only reviewer that posts on this blog.  I have no staff.  At times you will see me post as Karen or SiKReviews as I have two Google+ Accounts.  I choose books to review on a case-by-case basis. If you would like me to consider doing a review of your book, you can contact me by email.

Most of my book reviews are of a positive nature, however, if you solicit a review I will write an honest review.  In that case, this solicited review can be negative or positive in nature.  Submit at your own risk.
