Review Policy

The books, music, and movies that I review are for my own enjoyment. I’ve either purchased them with my own money, won them from contest/giveaways, or the authors/artist have sent them to me.Therefore, I do not charge for my reviews or accept any sort of compensation.

I’m happy to have any artist, author, publisher, or publicist to submit books/demos for review.

Books: Currently, my turn around time is 4 to 6 months. I can accommodate if you would like the review sooner. I ask that you include your deadline in your initial email. Keep in mind that I am an author myself and currently have several projects of my own that I’m working on.

I will review almost anything under the umbrella of fiction with the exception of  Urban Fantasy, Mystery & Horror. I also accept memoirs, Christian Fiction, and inspirational books. However, my main focus will be on books that are by or about people of color.

You choose of publishing does not affect my decision to review your book(s). Meaning, self-published and small press authors, please feel free to submit your request to have your work reviewed. We all have to start somewhere and your starting point should not be held against you. And I don’t say that just because I’m a self-published author.

Music: Currently, my turn around for music is about two weeks. If that time frame doesn’t work for you, I must be the wrong person for the job. However, if you can live within that time frame, please submit your request to the email address below. Keep in mind that I also sing on the local level and will work your review in around my scheduled performances and rehearsals.

I can like also any music that my inner dancer can move to. However, my favorites are Gospel, Contemporary Gospel, and R&B. I will accept Neo Soul, Christian Hip-Hop with a real Bible based message, clean cut main stream Hip-Hop. I will not accept any music with abrasive lyrics, degradation of religion, race, creed, culture, sexual orientation, or sexuality. Should you choose to send a demo that do not fall within this guideline, it will be destroyed without review. No exceptions!

All of my reviews are my honest opinion. I rate on a scale of 0 to 5 with zero being what the heck was I thinking when I agreed to review this book and five being literary genius, I can’t wait to hear more.

If you would like for my to review your book, please email me at info@lafreddieb.com. Please include in your email a sample chapter, synopsis, and cover image. You will receive a responds within 72 hours (usually same day). At that time, I will give you the address to submit your review copy or advance review copy with full press kit.

Movies: At this time I do not review independent films. All movie reviews on this site will be of movies that have debut on the big screen. As with books and music, any straight to DVD movies reviewed are also purchased with my own funds or gifted to me.
