Blogging Tips: How to Request Review Copies from Authors

There are A LOT of posts out there about how to request ARCs from publishers, but I've yet to see a single one that covers the topic of requesting books from authors. And you know why that's a problem? Because not every author has a publisher. I don't have to be an author to understand that it's hard to find reviewers. Many self-published authors can't afford putting their books on sites like...

Bookish Tag Post: NSFW Book Tag

I stumbled upon this book tag on YouTube and it seemed fun, plus I have been slowly losing my filter in regards to all things book-related, so I figured why not?
