Announcement + Recruiting

This announcement is a bitter sweet one. Lili will be starting an awesome scholarly journey in August and I’ll let her tell you all about it when she’s ready, which is amazing for her, but it also means she won’t be able to commit to Team Tynga’s Reviews anymore *insert sad panda face here*. Lili has been an amazing contribution to the blog, and will still post regularly in the coming weeks, and I’m hoping she’ll stop by for a visit every now and then afterward :)

She will be dearly missed and it’s with a broken heart that I am opening recruitment once again, to try and find a replacement.

If you choose to review for Team Tynga’s Reviews, I won’t be sending you any books (shipping from Canada is ridiculously expensive but if you live in the Montreal area, you could borrow from my shelves), you’ll have to review your own books but, I have a lot of review request I am turning down right now, so if any of those books interest you, I could have them sent directly to you, and you can obviously keep those books. You could also request books from NetGalley/Edelweiss and ARCs from publishing houses will be a viable option in the future (we’ll have to discuss that).

I want it to be clear though, that reviewing for Team Tynga’s Reviews does not guaranty you a plethora of free books, it shouldn’t be your prime motivation.

The new reviewer must commit to:

  • Post an original review every Wednesday (may vary for tours etc..)
  • Post a Daring You to Read post once every 4 weeks
  • Be involved in the blog’s general functioning and reply to comments
  • Reply to ours email in a timely manner

My criteria:

  • Books reviewed must be of the Paranormal Genre (some dystopian and steampunk accepted). I’d like someone who reads YA since Steph & Jenn mostly reads adult, but it’s not mandatory.

  • You must be 18 + (or have parental permission)

  • You don’t already have a blog of your own (negotiable)

  • You must write fairly articulate reviews, and I’d like to see some you’ve previously written (amazon, goodreads and the likes)

  • If you have a goodreads account, I’d like to see it to make sure we have similar taste.

  • I’m not against negative reviews but I’m against bashing and disrespect. I reserve a veto vote on anything we publish.

  • No plagiary tolerated.

  • Must be able to use Windows Live Writer or know enough HTML to publish their posts according to the actual template.

What’s in it for you?

  • A platform to express your thoughts on books

  • Being part of a fairly successful blog (this includes your own About Me section, custom sig, wishlist etc…)

  • Interaction with your favourite authors when planning events

  • Possibility to sign up for tours

  • A couple of free books along the line

I might have forgotten something, so feel free to contact me with any questions you might have =)
