- Premium reviews will always be read before free submissions, and will always be read on a first-come-first-served basis.
- Sending me your book is no guarantee that I will review it. In the absence of Premium reviews or former Premium customer titles on My Bookshelf, I will read in no particular order, and will pick whichever submission takes my fancy next.
- Your submission will not be considered a Premium review request until I have received confirmation of your payment to MJV Services by Paypal or Stripe.
- I reserve the right to refuse Premium review requests for any reason - in these cases your payment will be immediately refunded in full.
- IN NO OTHER CASES (INCLUDING A BAD REVIEW) ARE PAYMENTS REFUNDED - this applies even if you choose not to allow the review to be posted.
- My reviews are ALWAYS honest; I do not offer favourable reviews in exchange for Premium payment.
- Subsequent standard submissions by former Premium customers will only take priority over non-Premium customers and are in no way guaranteed, in respect of when or even if they will be reviewed. Only new, individually paid Premium reviews are fully guaranteed.
- Unfortunately, it has become necessary for me to cap word counts accepted at 120,000, which includes Premium reviews. The form will not allow you to submit longer counts - please be honest when filling in the word count field.
- Unfortunately I am unable to post Customer Reviews on Amazon; my reviews should be added to your book's Amazon listing as an Editorial Review, by posting it in your Author Central area.
- MY REVIEWS ARE NOT NEGOTIABLE, AND I DON'T WANT TO ARGUE WITH YOU ABOUT YOUR BOOK - IF YOU CAN'T TAKE AN HONEST OR UNFAVOURABLE REVIEW, PLEASE RECONSIDER BEFORE REQUESTING ONE.
While I promise to always create reviews impartially, without any bias or ulterior motive, in some cases I may consider it necessary to recommend you refer to the editorial services of professionals for whom I occasionally carry out paid editorial work. I may also contact you from time to time to suggest the services of my own editorial company MJV Literary Author Services. By submitting your writing you acknowledge and accept this disclosure.
