Review Information

All reviews are the honest opinion of the author. The Word Nerd Reviews does not receive any financial compensation from publishers or authors in lieu of a review. WNR may receive free or ARC copies of books but any reviews published on this site, or any other associated with WNR, are the opion of the author and not influenced in any way by authors and/or publishers.

A review cannot be guaranteed for all books accepted for consideration. This is primarily due to two reasons: a) I work full time, I’m starting a business, and I study at university. This means that unfortunately I don’t have all the time I would like to read; b) due to this limited reading time, I am selective in what I read, and this is also dependent on my mood at the time.

Release or Special Event deadlines will always be taken into consideration and I will do my best to ensure the review is up and available before, or within the first week, of release. Please keep in mind that sites such as Amazon will not allow reviews until the book is released and ‘live’ on their system. I will place reviews on such sites once allowed, as soon as practical after the release date.

Rating System: My ratings generally run from 1-5 stars, although because I don’t like to be a source of negative publicity I will not normally review anything I rate under 3 stars. 3 stars being an ‘average’ but enjoyable read; 4 stars is something that I really enjoyed and would likely read again; and 5 stars had that something special that made it stand out from the rest.

The Word Nerd will publish reviews, or links to reviews, on the following sites:

All reviews are Copyright of The Word Nerd Reviews. They may be used freely for promotional purposes by the author/publisher, but permission must be sought for any further use or publication.

The Word Nerd Reviews guarantees that review copies received will not be sold, shared, or distributed in any way beyond the administrators of this site.
