Q: Hello, would you like to review my book on your blog?/ Would you like to receive a review copy/ ARC of my book have it reviewed on your blog?
A: Sorry but I am currently not accepting book review requests at the time. The books I will be reviewing on this blog are exclusively chosen by me.
Q: Do you still accept author interviews/guestposts/giveaway promotions?
A: YES. Even though I'm not accepting any book review requests, I am still very open on helping publicisists/publishers/authors in promoting their works. The ONLY condition I have is that I should be familiar with their work. Drop me a line on my email!
Q: How do you read books which are not available here in Philippines? Do you buy them abroad or you just download an ebook format on the internet? Thanks :)
A: This question is usually asked by my fellow Filipino readers. Those books which are not available here in Philippines are the ones I requested from publishers/publicists/authors (it could be in e-book format or hardcopy) for book review, and vice versa. As for e-books, most of which were I received (for free) from NetGalley (you can sign up for free). Other books are the ones I've won from contests :)
Q: Do you make blog layouts? How do you make your blog banner? What are your resources?
A: I design my blog layout, yes. For my current layout, I'm using Blogger templates and then I tweaked some things here and there. Unfortunately, I don't make blog layouts for a living, I honestly think I am not that effective enough in making blog layouts. I used Photoshop CS3 for my current blog banner. There are tons of cool resources out there, Google is your best friend. But if you're going to ask for my personal and favorite resource, it's got to be fuckyeahresources, they've got tons of resources plus tutorials in editing photos and such, so if you're into that check out their site. I find these following resources really helpful as well:
- Fontsquirrel (fonts)
- Shizoo Design (patterns, palettes, textures)
- UrbanFonts (fonts)
- Velvet Factory (patterns, palettes, textures)
- MissTiina (patterns, fonts, textures, vectors)
