**UPDATED MAY 21, 2014**
I am glad to accept books for review consideration on My Friend Amy. Please note the following as contacting me assumes you have read and agree to these terms:
*I am always happy to hear from publishers and authors about books, but unfortunately, I cannot make guarantees about reviews. This blog is a passion project, not a job.
*I participate in an extremely limited number of blog tours, because I find that I generally work better when I am able to determine my own schedule.
*I am on LibraryThing, goodreads, Facebook, and Twitter.
*I am an advisory board member for Bloggers Recommend.
*I also write and review for The Friendly Book Nook. Please check out that blog for cozy mysteries, Amish books, children's, and middle grade books.
*I may point out potentially sensitive or offensive elements to readers at the end of a review in Things You Might Want to Know. These elements do not affect how I feel about a book and are completely separate from my recommendations.
*My blog is not your advertising space. If I agree to a guest post or interview, I expect to receive something exclusive that will not be reprinted elsewhere.
What I Like:
I really am truly and genuinely interested in a wide variety of books and my tastes do change. As a rule of thumb, I love fiction, young adult, and narrative nonfiction. Currently I am especially interested in the following:
Urban fantasy--werewolves, vampires, zombies, fae, etc.
Anything baseball--nonfiction or fiction
Young Adult--anything but high fantasy
I am also interested in books that explore and examine the role of faith in people's lives. This is a thematic preference and can obviously fall under any genre, and can include any religion (and does include Christian fiction). I am also interested in books that feature clergy, or other people who take on a role of leadership or a lifestyle of faith. Some of my favorite books in this area include The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell and Silence by Shusaku Endo.
I also am interested in more academic texts regarding faith, religion, and the Christian church in particular.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your interest!
I will also accept music, movies, and TV shows for review. Again, accepting one of these items does not guarantee a review.
For my Readers
While I receive many books for review, I will always let you know where I got the book and give you my honest opinion regardless of the source.
