Policies & Disclosures

I am not currently accepting self-published review / interview requests

Review Policy
I review recently published or forthcoming children's picture books and comic books on the basis of illustration and design. Depending on the type of review, coverage may be given here on Let's Talk Picture Books and/or on my Instagram accountWhile I cannot review every book I receive, I will send you a link to any coverage I give your book. Please note that it can take up to 8 weeks to post a review after the book is received. For every review, all opinions are my own regardless of how I received the book. Generally speaking, I like to focus on the positive, so no books will receive negative reviews on this site.

Interview Policy
I host an interview series called Let's Talk Illustrators, which explores the methods, media, and design techniques that illustrators use to create visual narratives and worlds in children's picture books. An archive of the series can be found here.

Email Me
If you'd like to get in touch, please send me an email at LetsTalkPictureBooks@gmail.com with "Review Request" or "Interview Request" in the subject line. Be sure to include the following:

Let's Talk Picture Books participates in the BookShop Affiliate Program. You can see the LTPB shop here. This program provides bloggers with a small percentage of each purchase for linking to books in posts. Using BookShop links does not influence my reviews, and, as always, any and all opinions expressed in a post are my own.
