Book Review Policy

This blog is not paid by publishers to review and tout their books. And Sagecreek Productions LLC does not guarantee to publish a review about a particular book. The editor explains: “If we don’t like a book, we will not review it here. Writing a book requires significant time, effort, and expense, whether it is good or not. We do not like to trash other writers’ efforts.” The book review goal for this blog is to offer “what we believe are honest assessments and provide useful information to readers seeking particular types of books. Sometimes we may offer a few critical comments, but mostly, we strive to provide useful information that can help a reader decide to purchase a book–or not.”

Si Dunn adds: “We do receive sample book copies from publishers, and we are under no obligation to publish reviews of any of those books. Indeed, we review only the books that we want to review, and we try to assess how well we think the books meet the goals set forth by their writers.”

Publishers may mail printed books for possible review (no promises!) to: Si Dunn, Sagecreek Productions LLC, 3616 Far West Blvd., Suite 117-131, Austin, TX 78731-3082. Generally, ebooks are not reviewed on this blog, but exceptions may be made in a few instances.
