Please do not email me to review your book on my website. I am not a reviewer or a journalist. If you are a writer, please do check out my submission guidelines and the archives of this site before emailing me to ask about word counts, the difference between YA and middle grade, what I'm looking for, etc. I am glad to answer general questions on this blog, but due to time constraints, cannot answer every question specific to a particular book.
