Bookish Ardour’s Special Features and Blog Tours Policy

Officially I am not openly accepting new review requests, but Bookish Ardour is available for other events and requests related to books. If you are interested in sharing your work via one of BA’s special features, or via a guest post, you’re welcome to submit a request. Please read through my Special Features and Blog Tours Policy beforehand. Allow for one week maximum for me to reply to your request.

Requests from self-published authors are welcome.

If you do have any questions or if something is not clear, please feel free to ask. I welcome all enquiries, but I do request you read through my policy beforehand. Thank you!

Bookish Ardour’s Special Features

Bookish Ardour has two special features wherein requests to showcase books is accepted.

  • Book Trailers: Every second Saturday a new book trailer will be featured. Here is a previous BT for example.
  • Author Talks: Every second Saturday an author interview, vlog, or chat will be shared in video format.
  • BA Features for the Week: Each Wednesday I choose one or two titles, usually new-release and pending, to feature on BA. Here is a previous BAFW for an example, when it was for week by week special features.
