Associate Reviewer Wanted!

Posted January 18, 2014 by Carmel in Miscellaneous / 2 Comments


My associate reviewer, Josh, will soon be leaving the blog to pursue his teaching career; his last post will be on February 26th, which means… I’m in need of a new associate reviewer! His shoes will be hard to fill but I wish him the best of luck in his new job, and future endeavors. Thanks for all of your hard work Josh!

Please read on if you’re interested in becoming a Rabid reviewer:

What’s in it for you?

  • Being part of Rabid Reads and getting your name out there as a reviewer (i.e. your own About Me section, signature, e-mail account, links to your social media accounts, etc);
  • Most likely free books;
  • Opportunities to network with your favourite authors and a platform on which you can express your bookish views;
  • If you live in the Ottawa-Gatineau area: access to my bookshelves;
  • The help, knowledge and guidance of an experienced blogger.

Terms and Conditions

  • You must be 15 years of age or older;
  • Books reviewed must be paranormal in nature (Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult, Dystopian, Steampunk, Fantasy, etc);
  • You will commit to doing a minimum of one post per month and if you can not deliver said post you will notify me as soon as possible so that alternative arrangements can be made;

  • You must be able to post your reviews on sites such as GoodReads, Amazon, LibraryThing, Smashwords, etc (depends on the author/publisher);

  • I reserve the right to delete any post without notice.
