We will not accept

  • Extreme violence, or books which express an extreme religious or political point of view, or any subject matter which could be deemed offensive. 

Our reviews are all open, honest and fair. Any criticism we hope will be constructive.

How a review is requested will have no bearing on the review. An enhanced review (see below for details) will only guarantee a timescale for the review, it will not in any way alter the review.

Our reviews are graded using a simple Razberry Rating System:

5-stars

5 Razberries – Absolutely loved it, couldn’t put it down – READ THIS BOOK NOW

4-stars

4 Razberries – Really great read, highly recommended

3-stars

3 Razberries – Enjoyed reading, would consider more from this author, give it a go!

2 Razberries – Struggled to finish, wasn’t a book that really piqued any interest, can’t recommend.

1 Razberry – Pretty bad read, avoid (we are very unlikely to publish a 1 star review, we will probably email the author to explain we can’t in all honestly publish a review of a book we were unable to find any redeeming features for).

DNF (did not finish) – we don’t publish DNF reviews.

Submitting your book for review:

When you submit a review request you acknowledge that:

  • The review may be positive or negative
  • If your book was a DNF, no review will be published (your review payment will of course be refunded to you).
  • If you, the author, are not happy with the review, then we are sorry, but the review will not be changed or removed.
  • We cannot offer any guarantee as regards timescales for a book review being published, if you would like to ‘jump the queue’ please see below for our Enhanced Review package.
  • We may send you a copy of the review before it goes live, as a courtesy; however we will not change the review.

We will not change any of the above policies, so please only submit a book if you are happy with them.

If you are ready to submit a request, please send an email to info@razberryjuice.com, including your book (see below for formats accepted).

The submission should include:

  • Your name (pen name if appropriate)
  • Brief synopsis of the book
  • Genre
  • Links to all places where the book is for sale.
  • A short paragraph about you (the author) – if you would like this included within your review.
  • Links to your social media site – Twitter, Facebook, Google+ etc.
  • A .JPG of your book cover.
  • Please ensure you have made payment for your review, via Paypal, before you send us the information.  If we decide we cannot review your book, for whatever reason, we will notify you and immediately refund your money.
  • IF YOU ARE PURCHASING AN ENHANCED BOOK REVIEW PACKAGE (see below) – please include the specific date you would like the book review published (if it is less than seven days from the date on which you send the submission, we will be in touch with you to confirm, and if it is not possible we will refund your payment).
