Policies & Disclosures

FTC Guidelines

In compliance with the FTC guidelines governing blogging and endorsements, any book received from a publisher for review will be explicitly notated as such at the end of the review. If any review lacks this notification, the material in question was either purchased by me, or received as a gift from family or friends.

Review Policies

Every review published on GeekDame.com is the candid opinion of Deborah J. Brannon, regardless of personal or professional relationship with the author or publisher.

If you are a publisher or author interested in having your book reviewed on this site, please keep the following in mind:

  • Ensure your book falls into one of the following genres: SFF (or related subgenres), SFF YA, Literature (with a fantastic component) or nonfiction (related to geeky interests). (If you’re unsure, query.)
  • Be aware that I am unable to guarantee specific publication dates for reviews, though I am open to requests. If you have a timetable, I will try to work with you.
  • I will accept both print and digital editions for review, as long as the digital edition can be read on the Kindle.
  • I will not accept any unfinished book for review, or books with no set publication date.
  • I do not discriminate against self-published authors; feel free to query.
  • I am pleased to host giveaways on request, should the publisher or author be able to put up the materials for giveaway.
  • I reserve the right to refuse any request.

Please send me an e-mail with your review query; if accepted, I will reply with the relevant information.

Please note: I will not accept or read any e-mail with an attachment unless we have previously been in contact.
