Review Policy & Disclosure

I have a series called Scene of the Crime in which I interview crime fiction authors. The authors I interview are ones that I've read, so if you see your name listed in my labels and you're a crime fiction writer, feel free to contact me about an interview.

If you are a crime fiction writer, and you're interested in writing a guest post for Kittling: Books, please contact me.

Thank you again for your interest in my blog, and I look forward to working with you. 

That all-important email address?!


I review books as a passion and a hobby, not as a way to earn money. It is my greatest wish to get everyone on the planet to pick up books and read.

I do accept Advanced Reading Copies (hereafter referred to as ARCs) to review. My acceptance of an ARC does not guarantee a favorable review, so be warned.

When I review an ARC or any other edition of a book that was given to me by a publicist or publisher, that fact is clearly stated in each review.

Although I may include links to author websites and places such as Amazon where the reviewed books may be purchased, I am in no way affiliated with any of them. I post these links in order to make it easier for my readers to find a copy of the book to buy. No money, goods or services change hands.

Once I have finished reading an ARC, it is disposed of so someone else doesn't pick it up and try to sell it. After all, NOT FOR SALE is clearly marked on those books!

If you have any questions at all, please email me at

Thank you!
