Salon Review Policies

Request a Review

‘Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.’ {Anna Quindlen}

Her Literary Salon was created for the soul purpose of talking books. I am always excited and pleased to receive a book recommendation or the request for a book review. If you would like to review your latest book, please email Carolann including:

• A short summary of your book
• Any concerns, special requests or pertinent information
• Time restrictions
• A short biography (and headshot, if available) of the author

As a partnership such as this is meant to benefit both parties, I will not accept a book that is not to my personal taste and that I do not feel I would be able to review positively. However, this does not mean that all reviews will be 100% positive – all reviews will always be honest and truthful. In addition, Her Literary Salon believes in full disclosure with our readers and will share the appropriate information. I am currently accepting hardcover or paperback mediums – no e-books accepted at this time (I am a girl who fully enjoys   the traditional, tactile model of reading).

I will attempt to read and review each book within 6 to 8 weeks. If you have a shorter turnaround time in mind, please make sure to state that within the review request email. All reviews will be published on, Goodreads, and Amazon. In addition posts will be promoted via a plethora of social media including Pinterest, Facebook, and  Twitter, in addition to various others.
