Updated Review Policy

31 December 2011 Jackie 1

It’s a new year and I’ve been thinking it’s time to implement a few changes.  One big change is to the review policy.  It still amazes me whenever I’m offered novels for review.  That was never the goal when I first started Literary Escapism, but I’m not going to complain […]
