Disclaimers & Sponsored Posts

Disclaimers

I am an Amazon Associate.  If you click a link on my blog to Amazon then buy an item, I get a small percentage of the sale.  However, all of my reviews are my honest opinion, and all links are entirely my choice.

This is my personal blog. It should in no way be perceived as to reflect my workplace’s opinions or policies.

Sponsored Posts

There is only one type of post that is sponsored on Opinions of a Wolf, and that is New Release Fridays. No other posts on this blog are sponsored, although sometimes a book or product is provided free of charge for review.  When this is the case, it is always noted in the “source” portion at the bottom of the reviews.

New Release Fridays:

If you are an indie author or publisher, this is a chance to generate buzz and interest for your book from a readership interested specifically in your genre or content. The buzz on your posting day will also cross-post to my twitter, as well as to a dedicated Pinterest board (similar to my books reviewed Pinterest boards) of new releases featured here.

The New Release Friday posts feature:

  • Book cover –> I am happy to be the official cover reveal, if you wish.
  • Book blurb
  • Genre and content note
    • If the book contains GLBTQ content or would be a good read for the Mental Illness Advocacy Reading Challenge, this will be noted, as these are two content areas that are of particular interest to my readership.
    • Trigger warning note for books containing rape or attempted rape.
  • One paragraph from the author on what makes this book unique/stand-out/a different read than you will generally find within that genre.
  • Optional: One paragraph from the author on a topic of their choice (their writing process, why an issue in the book is important to them, etc…) (This paragraph is optional).
  • Optional: Coupon code or price reduction or note that the book is free.
    • Coupon codes can range from 25% to 100% off for readers of this blog and may be for a duration of 24 hours to 7 days.
    • If you are on a platform that does not allow coupon code generation, then you may reduce the price for a range from 25% to 100% off for a minimum of the day your post goes live, but this reduction may continue for up to a total of 7 days.
  • Link to buy the book.

Because I am doing you a service and, unlike when I review ARCs, I am not getting a book in exchange for this service, I will be charging a fee for these posts. Currently the fee will be $5, payable via PayPal, but this fee will change over time dependent upon the readership of the blog and as the feature grows.

Additionally, because I wish to tailor the content of my blog, only books within the following genres will be featured:

  • Chick Lit
  • Detective / Film Noir
  • Fantasy (including urban)
  • Historical Fiction
  • Horror
  • Mystery
  • Nonfiction – Cookbooks
  • Nonfiction – GLBTQ
  • Nonfiction – Health and Fitness
  • Nonfiction – History
  • Paranormal Romance
  • Scifi
  • Western Romance

Authors and publishers interested in being featured on New Release Friday should fill out the form found here a minimum of 3 weeks prior to the Friday you wish to be featured.

Within 1 week of submission, I will get back to you and let you know if I think your book is a good match for my readership.  If it is, you will need to provide me with, in addition to what was on the form:

  1. A buy link for the post
  2. A jpg of your book cover
  3. One paragraph from the author on what makes this book unique/stand-out/a different read than you will generally find within that genre.
  4. Optional: one paragraph from the author on a topic of their choice (their writing process, why an issue in the book is important to them, etc…)
  5. Optional: A  coupon code for Opinions of a Wolf readers (not necessary if your book is free)
  6. $5 via PayPal

All of the above will be due one week before the post schedule date aka the Friday before you wish the post to be published.  If you do not provide me with these 6 items one week before the post is to be published, you forfeit your right to be featured on the blog.
