Dead End Follies Review Policy v5

Dead End Follies Review Policy v5

Hey guys,

So 2016 turned out to be my busiest year after all. I'm pumped over 100 book reviews, close to 50 movie reviews and launched a television segment on the site despite claiming I wanted to slow things down and focus on quality this year. The site is popular, so it's difficult to complain, right? This is still a concern for me going in 2017 but the stakes are higher this time. So, I've updated my review policy and turned it into somewhat of a manifesto for your enjoyment. These rules will be applicable starting January 1st 2017. I will finish 2016 the way I started it.

  • Submit your books/screeners/albums to benoitlelievre (at) gmail (dot) com. Kindle format (.mobi) or paperback. This is for consideration only. Audience interest and thematic fit will be the judge of whether or not I read it. I'm not turning down anything, but I don't make guarantees. The priority of this site is the audience and not the artists. No, they aren't the same.
  • If I read your book, it guarantees you a Goodreads and an Amazon review. Not a blog review. There will be 6 book reviews a month starting on January of 2017, so 72 book reviews in total. Books I either highly recommend or profoundly detest will make it on the site.
  • Feel free to query site contributor Gabino Iglesias for reviews. Whatever he writes will not be factored in the aforementioned totals. I am not responsible for his TBR, though. 
  • Do your homework. This site has niche interests and I do not review every genre. If you don't think you're an editorial fit, please save us both the time and don't submit.
  • Pre-release reviews are good business for everyone, but please be reasonable about it and give me the book/movie/album a couple weeks before release so I can insert it in my editorial schedule.
  • Self-published material is immediately turned down unless recommended by someone I trust. Sorry, the quality just isn't there most times.
