Thank you for your review request!






Welcome gold banner new-min

Book and Product Review Policy Guidelines:

Mother/Gamer/Writer consists of 2 full-time geeky reviewers: Diayll (owner) and Ariel. M/G/W is open to receiving books and products for Review, Featured Interviews, Guest Posts, Indie Author Spotlight Posts, and Giveaways. We gladly accept ARC’s as well as published books and self-published books (professionally edited). We will accept print copies or e-books (Nook, Kindle edition or PDF files) that can be read on our eReaders. If we select a print copy for review, a shipping address will be provided in an email request. Product reviews are usually completed within a two-week window depending on the item reviewed and length of time needed to see the benefits of the product tested. Our timeline can be modified on a case by case basis, however, this must be stated in the original request. If no timeline is given we will use our own discretion (within reason).


Please Note: Our reviews are our honest opinions. We in no shape or form claim to be professional reviewers, just geeky girls who love books! If we have started reading your novel, we reserve the right not to write a review or DNF a book if:


A) There were too many errors found in the manuscript and it diminished our enjoyment of the novel.

B) For some reason we did not like the book overall (main characters, plot, pacing, etc.).


If a book has been marked as a DNF (did not finish), we may or may not write a quick/detailed review or mark it as such on other reviewing platforms like Amazon and Goodreads. Books reviewed for Blog Tours/Promotions will be reviewed in the same way unless otherwise specified. If we have reviewed your novel and found it to be less than satisfactory, we can offer other services such as an Interview, Guest Post, or Promotional Spotlight.

We do not guarantee reviews of books or products we don’t finish reading or testing, however, you will be notified. We encourage you to resubmit products or books for review if changes are made to the previous version.
