Policies & Disclosures


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

Review Policy
I review recently published (within the last 12 months) or forthcoming children's picture 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 6 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.

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 collaborate on a review or interview, please email me at LetsTalkPictureBooks@gmail.com with "Review Request" or "Interview Request" in the subject line. Be sure to include the following:

  • Title
  • Author/illustrator names
  • Cover image (this site focuses on design and illustration — covers are important!)
  • Brief synopsis
  • Book trailer (if applicable)

I look forward to hearing from you!

Disclosure
Let's Talk Picture Books now participates in the IndieBound Affiliate Program. This program provides bloggers with a small percentage of each purchase for linking to books in posts. Using IndieBound 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 September 7, 2017. Feel free to email me with any questions you may have at LetsTalkPictureBooks@gmail.com.
