With everything thats been going on we thought we would look over our policies.  Well we found out that these havent been updated in well lets say a very long time. 

I (Jessica) started Crossroad Reviews a while ago because I have a love of all things books.  I love being able to go different places without leaving my home.  But it seems that somewhere along the way book blogging in general became more about what and how many ARCs and books you get.  What authors know you by name, etc.  And this is not what it should be about.  

We are now a Drama Free Site.  What this means is if you post on any of our social networks anything that will cause drama.  You will be banned and the comment/post will be deleted. 
We are sad that this must be posted.  But over the last three months we have seen a ton of Author, Blogger Bashing as well as a lot of Cyber Bulling. 

All review requests must go through our form.  Please find it and its policies here 

Ratings run via the following. 

Selling, Stamping, Pirating 
It seems that a few things are going around about ARCs.  So we want to make it clear that ARCs on this site are NEVER SOLD! They are added to the review or promo post for giveaway only.  If by chance someone does not want the ARC added to this type of giveaway it will then be added to our trade box.  Those books will be shared with a small group of other bloggers.  If no one claims them there the will be added to a massive Mystery Box Giveaway at the end of the year. 

Stamping of ARCs- We have once again decided to go ahead and stamp all ARCs this way we know that they were once here.  Its a great way for the life of the ARC for those who end up with it can find out site.  

Pirating of ARCs- Via our Review Request form we do NOT accept DMR free files.  All books will need to be Gifted via Amazon in eBook format, Paid for via Paypal/Amazon for those outside of the US so the book can be purchased.  Or sent to us directly in print.  
eGalleys we get via Tours etc.  Will never be shared or sold. They will be emailed to our kindle account and then the file deleted. 

We get so many books that we get to run a ton of giveaways!  So here are our policies for those. 
This policy will apply to all giveaways on this site that are hosted by us.  Giveaways via tours have their own set of rules and polices. 
Rafflecopter that is what we use.  You can log in via your email or Facebook 
You must be at least 13 years old to enter the giveaways or have your parents permission to enter 
All giveaways are International (if a giveaway is restricted it will state it.)
Follow through.  If you do not follow through with sharing, following, watching a video, commenting, etc.  Your entry will be deleted and you will be added to our Black List. 
Giveaways will last for 1 week
