Review Policy:
RBtWBC receives no monetary gain or favors from posting our thoughts on any books. We would like to stress that these are our own, honest, opinions whether the book was purchased ourselves, won in a contest/giveaway, or a review copy was received. Books provided by authors, publicists or review sites will be notated as such.

Reading Between the Wines is NOT accepting any new book review requests at this time.  However, If you are an author that we have worked closely with in the past please contact us and if there isn't a specific time-line that you are looking to have your book reviewed by we may be able to work something in. We do conduct author interviews, guest posts, giveaways, and participate in blog tours by author request only.  If you would like Reading Between the Wines to participate in any of these activities, please email Crystal at readingbetweenthewines10@gmail.com

Please email your requests to Crystal at readingbetweenthewines10@gmail.com. Do not submit requests through Facebook, Goodreads, Twitter, ect. Please email them to us. If you do not get a response within two weeks that means that we will not be reviewing the book. Please do not just send us your book without a request.
