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 and Twitter accounts. While I cannot review every book I receive, I like to focus on the positive, so no books will receive negative reviews on this site. For every review, all opinions are my own regardless of how I received the book. Please note that it can take up to 10 weeks to post a review after the book is received.

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.

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 a cover image—this site focuses on design and illustration—covers are important! Note: I do not accept PDFs or discuss solicitations via social media, only via email.

Disclosure: 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. Affiliate links are denoted at the bottom of each post, and you are welcome to read more about the affiliate program here. This disclosure policy is subject to change without notice and was last updated March 29, 2020. Feel free to email with any questions.

Sponsorship: Occasionally Let's Talk Picture Books will feature sponsored content, which will be indicated at the bottom of a post. This content is usually created in partnership with another bookish organization, and links in sponsored posts point to the sponsor's chosen purchase point. Like everything on this site, all opinions expressed within the post are my own. Feel free to email with any questions or to request a media kit.
