Updated Review Policy

Update: September 2019
Heading into another winter, well soon anyway. My health is better in some ways and in other ways not. 
I had been treated for Polymaygia Rheumatica, now the doctor says that I don't have that but the pain is from Fibromyalgia.

My balance issues have not gone away, the MRI found that I have a protruding disc in the C7-T1 area and also one in my lower back. I am looking at 2 surgeries down the road. Not too sure about that. The one in the neck would fuse my neck to the point that I could not move my neck. 

Other than that, life goes one and books get read!

Time for another update:
In the year since I had heart surgery, I have had lots of other things happen. I was hospitalized last January for an infection. Then I was diagnosed with Polymyalgia Rheumatica and put on a high dosage of Prednisone. I have been weaned off that and will be off completely by the end of February. 
Last month I ended up with a partial bicep tear just from pushing an oriental rug that was in front of the couch. Getting therapy for that.
So last week we ended up with an ice storm and got  6 inches of snow on top of that. I walk with a cane due to balance issues and I was on my way to therapy for the bicep tear and my cane went out and down I went. Ended up in urgent care and came home with an air cast on my ankle. Weird that that happened because I landed flat on my back. Now I have a severely sprained ankle and foot.
Wishing for the winter to end.

As far as my reading, I am trying to keep up, bear with me authors, I am working on my stack slowly. I will get to your book, but it will take time. 

I will only read the genres I am interested in. Please do not send a request if it is for the following genres: Poetry, Erotica, Westerns, Sci Fi, Dystopian, Alternate Universe, Fantasy or Self Help
Thank you for understanding.

To authors, publishers or anyone else that contacts me for reviews:

I try to give an honest review and if I am not able to finish a book for any reason I will let you know and will possibly list the book at LibraryThing or my blogs as a giveaway with the requirement that a review is expected.

My name is Kathleen Kelly, the first name is not Kelly. I know I have two first names but respectfully, please remember that when contacting me.

* I read most any genre but prefer Historical, Mystery, Thrillers and Contemporary Fiction. I do NOT review Fantasy but I will review Paranormal. I DO NOT review Poetry, Erotica, Westerns, Sci Fi, Dystopian, Alternate Universe, Fantasy or Self Help. Please do not even contact me if you have a book in these categories...I can not honestly do a good review on a genre that I do not like.

* If you want me to review a book for you, please email me at momkelly2003(at)gmail(dot)com and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

* Do not just send me an ebook and expect a review, if you can not take the time to pitch your book to me then I may not have time to review it. (this does not happen often but it has happened) and please do not ask me to purchase your book for review.

If I am interested in reviewing your novel, I will contact you. Otherwise, you will probably not hear from me. 

* I do participate as a Book Blog Tour Host for various websites(which is a priority) and I will have books read and reviewed by the required date for these tours.

* I will try my best to have reviews posted by the month of publication or whatever is required. If no date is specified then I will schedule as I see fit.

* Authors: I will do my best to read/review your book as soon as I am able, as I do have a lot of other books to review.

* I will review ebooks, I have a Kindle and other ereading apps.

* I post my reviews at Amazon.com, B&N, GoodReads, LibraryThing, and Shelfari with links to Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, Pinterest and Linked In.

I receive no monetary compensation for reviewing your book and this is a hobby and not a job, So please remember that when contacting me. 

*I love to promote any author but I especially like to promote 'new' or indie authors.

I look forward to working with you.

Kathleen Kelly
