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
- Self help
- Cook Books, food
- Dogs / Animals
- Fiction –
- Psychological Thrillers
- 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 tend to read any of the follow:
- erotic fiction
- military fiction
- zombies, vampires or werewolves
How do I Review
I prefer good old fashioned Hardback or Paperback books. But I will also accept some eBooks or PDFs.
I prioritise my reading so that I can support Blog Tours and always post my reviews on the day agreed.
My reviews are posted on my website, as well as Goodreads and where appropriate NetGalley and Amazon UK.
I also promote what I’m reading and my reviews on Twitter and Instagram. I’m building great relationships with book bloggers, blog tour guides, publishers and authors and always keen to connect with like minded book worms.
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.
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.
