Review Submissions and Feature Requests

Anyone that has previously submitted a manuscript for review or requested a blog feature may have noticed that I am moving EXTREMELY slowly through my to-read list!  The good news: this is because I am getting in more and more editing jobs!  The bad news: I am not able to devote much time to my blog :-(.  

***Insert PROFUSE apologies*** 

Technically, review submissions are CLOSED at this time.

If you are interested in being added to my to-read list, which now boasts over 200 books, you are welcome to send an inquiry to:  

Just know there is no way for me to guarantee when I will be able to read and review your submission.  

Blog features are also suspended at this time.  I am doing everything I can to continue with those I have scheduled.  I owe a couple authors a reschedule (again, apologizing PROFUSELY!), and I WILL be getting everything taken care of within the next few weeks!  

From here on out, I will begin asking authors of books I READ or edit if they are interested in features, so I will not be adding more books to my to-read list.  I'll actually begin working through the ones I have already.  

If you are interested in submitting a guest post or answering generic interview questions WITHOUT an accompanying review (though you may submit one of your favorite reviews from another source), I am more than willing to schedule a time for you to appear on Gathering Leaves. 

Please send all inquiries to:

I will need your guest post (preferably in Word format) or request for interview questions, book cover image, any photos/illustrations you might like included, a blurb of the book, a short bio for yourself, and any links that you would like included for readers to explore.

Again, I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  I appreciate your understanding and patience in this matter.  I am looking forward to working with you soon!
