Please read all my reviewing policy before contacting me!
I am the owner and sole reviewer at Chicks Rogues and Scandals, all reviews are my own opinions and thoughts, with the exception of the back blurb of the book and the occasional quote from the book which is for informational purposes only. I always give an honest, thoughtful and considerate review. I will always say what I particularly liked about the book and if by chance there is something I wasn’t too keen on then I will say so – but please don’t worry I never rip books apart, I am always be respectful to the authors hard work. My aim is to never giveaway spoilers, as a reader I won’t read a review with spoilers in it, so I won’t add any spoilers to my reviews. If one of my reviews does fall too close to giving away too much about the plot, then please do let me know and I will edit the review, I don’t wish to spoil the book for others.
I also post the review on NetGalley (when appropriate) Goodreads, Bookbub and Amazon UK under the name Frankie Reviews on all.
Historical (EG; Romance, Fiction) I love anything to do with Historicals especially historical romance, but I do love historical fiction and nonfiction – the more History the better, I will read every era from Medieval to WW2.

Everything else written in this review policy still stands and You can find full information to any changes HERE
I am happy to receive review requests from authors and publishers, unfortunately I only accept requests when in my preferred genre, and as stated above. I would ask that authors or publishers who are requesting a ARC review, that they contact me at least 6 weeks before the release date and I will try to post my review within 2 weeks of the release, unless otherwise stated.
Updated; November 2018 – Because of issues within my personal life that have occurred in the last year, I have now found myself with a three month back log, which means that my reviews may be later then originally stated. I am very sorry about that, but I assure all author’s whose books I already have and those who wish for a review that I will always post one.
If you are requesting a review you can contact me via social media or on the Contact Me page where you can fill out my short request form. When requesting a review can you include all of the following information :
- Date of release (only if an ARC)
- Title of book (if a series include the name of series)
- Brief description.
I don’t necessarily want to read the newest of the new book’s and author’s, I am more than happy to read older book’s. If you are an author or publisher and wish for me to review then I would prefer an Mobi or epub (even though I do love a print, I am very conscious of postage costs)
I do take my reviewing very seriously so I will always post a requested review once I have read a book, but due to the fact that I am the sole Reviewer of Chicks Rogues and Scandals and as I have other commitments in my personal life please don’t be alarmed if my reviews sometimes take a while to be posted. If that does happen, I apologize in advance, it isn’t that I haven’t read the book it will be down to other factors such as time and responsibilities.
I DON’T AND WILL NEVER ACCEPT PAYMENT FOR REVIEWS!!!
That isn’t what I do and more importantly that isn’t what Chicks Rogues and Scandals is about. I am not a professional reviewer, I am an enthusiastic amateur, who enjoys reading and sharing my views. I will never ask for anything in return for a review.
I always promote my posts on Twitter and Facebook, I don’t mind if you promote the review or the interview on social media and if you are wanting to use quotes from my review for promotion of your book that’s absolutely fine by me, In fact it would make my day. What I do ask is that you…
!!Don’t copy the entirety of my reviews or interviews!!
I don’t have a problem with sharing so long as you share appropriately using the share buttons on the post. If you do use my review or quotes in promotion of the book then let know, you can tag me on Twitter: @chicksandrogues and Facebook: @ChicksandRogues
Interviews, Guest Post’s, Spotlight/Features.
I am happy to host guest posts, spotlights and features, but only those which fall into my preferred genre’s. You don’t need to have been featured on Chicks Rogues and Scandals before to participate in any of the above.
I only host my own Interviews, I use my own Interview that is exclusive to Chicks Rogues and Scandals. If an Interview is preferred then I will send out my Interview document to you as soon as possible, this is usually within a few days. I usually post the interview within a few days of receiving the interview back – unless stated otherwise. Please let me know if you have a particular time frame in mind for your interview and I will do my utmost to adhere to it, you are more than welcome to add links and photograph’s to the interview.
Interviews are open to all author’s you don’t need to fall into the genre’s above to feature.
The one thing I do request is that you provide a profile picture, which I will use at the top of the interview (this can be a social media profile picture if you like) and this will be featured on my Author Interview page with a link to the interview.
If you do wish to have a Guest Post or Interview you can contact me at anytime – please put the following into your request and I will reply as soon as I able to.
- Name and Genre
- If you would prefer a Guest Post or an Interview
- A brief description of your work
- When you would prefer the Post/Interview to be featured (Please note, If a specific date is required then please let me know at least 2 weeks before).
- A link to your website
I am happy to take part in blog tours, I may not always be able to take part with a review it is dependant on my schedule, but if a particular blog tour catches my eye I am happy to participate with a interview/guest post/spotlight or feature. If you are hosting a blog tour then you are most welcome to contact me with the details.
Updated March 2018 – Due to a lot of time wasters and False People (those who are not who they say they are) if you haven’t got a visible online presence, this could be either a website/blog or social media then I’m afraid that I won’t be accepting any request.
I find all legitimate authors have at least one online domain, even if that is just a social media page. If I find you haven’t then I will treat that request with caution.
I DO CHECK OUT EACH AUTHOR BEFORE ACCEPTING!!
I am sorry if that comes across as very blunt, but you can never be too careful who you are chatting online with.
