My Review Policy & Ratings

Thanks for visiting my Travel and book blog, which was launched October 2020. Below is a brief summary of my review policy. I love to read and always have a book with me, whether paperback or Kindle. Books are a great way to relax, unwind and slow down in this crazy world we live in.

The reviews are simply my own opinions and thoughts on a particular book after I have finished reading it. I won’t review any books I have not read from beginning to end. Not everyone will agree with my reviews, but that’s okay.

Do I promote Products?

Yes, as well as books (see below), I am happy to work with small businesses to help promote their products as long as they related to the Touring Tales audience. So product review requests are welcome from items such as:

  • Dog products and services
  • Travel products and services
  • Outdoors – walking, fitness, cycling
  • Touring – camping, motorhome or camper van products and services

What Books I Review

I love to be involved in Book Blog Tours for new book launches. I’m also open to receiving requests for Publication Day Book blitz promotion posts of great new titles. I’m always interesting in adding variety so would be open to providing slots for Book Extracts and Author Q&As too.

The books I like to read are:

  • Travel Memoir, guides
  • Travel Fiction
  • Non Fiction
    • Autobiographies
    • Self help
    • Health
    • Cook Books, food
    • Dogs / Animals
  • Fiction –
    • Mystery
    • Suspense
    • Thrillers
    • Psychological Thrillers
    • Fantasy
    • Crime
    • Historical
    • I’m not a huge fan of romance – no mills and boon please – but I do read some light contemporary romance especially if it includes dogs and a good location such as Paris)

I DON’T read any of the follow:

  • erotic fiction
  • military fiction
  • paranormal
  • zombies, vampires or werewolves 

How do I Review

I prefer good old fashioned Hardback or Paperback books. But I will also accept some digitals / eBooks.

My reviews are posted on my website, as well as Goodreads and where appropriate NetGalley and Amazon UK.

I do not receive payment for my reviews, I do however accept copies of books from publishers and authors. I will always give a fair and honest review.

My blog does include affiliate links (see affiliate notice in footer and in Privacy Policy). Wherever possible I do support and promote independent booksellers and would welcome any requests to promote a small book business on my site.

Using my quotes / reviews

I am 100% happy for authors/publishers to reproduce parts of my reviews in books, on websites or as part of wider publicity, but please could these be attributed to TouringTales.

I hope this all helps, please feel free to contact me with any requests using my contact page.
