About Me/Review Policy

122Welcome to Books, Bones & Buffy! My name is Tammy, and I’m so happy that you stopped by! With all the choices on the internet these days, I appreciate you choosing BB&B:) This blog is dedicated to reading and reviewing quality adult and young adult fantasy, science fiction, horror, and literary fiction. I love talking to authors and publicists about upcoming titles, doing author interviews, hosting giveaways, and participating in blog tours.


Although I appreciate all the hard work it takes to be a self-published author, I am not reviewing or promoting self-published titles at this time! And please note that this includes any vanity or small presses that I’ve never heard of. If you choose to email me anyway and state that your book’s publisher is something you’ve made up for the purpose of making your self-published book seem more legit, trust me, I Google every book and publisher that comes my way, and I’m not easily fooled.

However, if your book has been published by a legitimate small publisher of genre fiction, I am certainly willing to check it out. I have been introduced to several new genre publishers this past year, and I would have missed out on some amazing reads if I’d passed them up.

**Important update: Lately I’ve been getting emails from writers who are asking me to read/promote books that ARE NOT GENRES I READ AND REVIEW! If you are confused by the sentence above in red, please read this list of things I will not read: Romance (unless it is science fiction or urban fantasy), non-fiction, Christian fiction, or new adult. Likewise, I do not randomly promote authors I have never heard of. If you are an indie author looking for free promotion, you have come to the wrong place. I stand behind each book I choose to talk about, and I only talk about books that I choose to read.

Thank you for taking the time to read my review policy.

  1. My name is Joe Rinaldo, and I have published an ebook entitled, A Spy At Home. I would be most grateful if you would review it for your blog. I’ll provide a free copy for you to read in Word, pdf, or html format, whichever you prefer.

    Garrison’s story begins when he retires from the CIA. In retirement Garrison shares the pain he inflicted on his family during his life abroad. Noah, Garrison’s adult son with Down syndrome, a form of mental retardation, doesn’t trust dad when he returns home. Experience has taught Noah that dad always leaves again. Over time they grow closer.

    Louisa, Garrison’s wife, gradually accepts her husband back; however, accepting him as her husband and trusting him with her child present two separate obstacles.

    Tragedy strikes, and Louisa dies. Garrison becomes solely responsible for Noah, who has developed Alzheimer’s, common in aging people with Down syndrome. This disease tears at Garrison’s heart. Noah ceases to be himself and relives a life his dad knew nothing about.

    Thank you for considering A Spy At Home. If you are willing to review my book, please email me at rinald47@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Joe Rinaldo
