Gift cards are how I keep track of how much I spend on books a month. If I added $20 to my gift card, once that balance is gone, I am done buying books for the month.

Not Everyone’s Mama – established August 31, 2006

I do write reviews on my blog, for info, please read below:

I do not do very many giveaways for physical products. If a product is something that I think will be a very good fit with my readers, I will do a giveaway BUT the company is responsible for shipping the prize to the winner.

At this point, product reviews have a turnaround about 2 weeks from the time the product hits my mailbox, unless it is a product that requires a longer amount of time to review (ie: tooth whitening products).

Many times I will include photos of my family using the product.

NOTE: A product is required for a review post.  I will not post press releases for a for-profit business without payment or compensation in the form of a product for my time and space.  I will not walk into your business and expect you to do things for me for free, please have the same respect for my business.

For books I am usually booked out about 6 weeks in advance, but I try to leave spots open in my calendar for books that need to be done very quickly.  I am always open to participating in a tour/blitz/reveal even if I don’t have time to read the book.  When I don’t have time to read the book for a tour, I am able to get an excerpt up.  I am also happy to post sales/reveals/promos on my Facebook page.

AT THIS TIME I AM NOT TAKING ON ANY ADDITIONAL BOOKS FOR REVIEW.  I am really far behind with my computer being broke for so long.

My genres of choice are:

  • Any romance – paranormal, contemporary, new adult, romantica
  • Paranormal (vamps, ghosts, shifters, any really)
  • Horror – I’m not squeamish, bring it on.  I love books that scare me.

I don’t read a lot of science fiction or non-fiction (I am not completely opposed though depending on subject matter).

I usually read on my iPad with the Kindle app (it’s greener), but I will read a paperback/hard cover.  Contact me for the shipping address to send books to.

I will not leave a review under 3 stars ever.  If the book has spelling/grammatical errors, I will contact the author/PR person directly and share what I have found.  If I just don’t like it because it is not my style, I will again contact whoever sent me the book to explain that.  I cannot lie and say I loved a book if I didn’t and I won’t give an author a bad review for it either.  It is not their fault that the book wasn’t my cup of tea.

Want to know a little about me and my family to see if we fit your demographics for your product?

I’m a 38 year old work at home mom.  I have a 14 year old boy, an 9 year old girl, a 6 year old girl, and a 4 year old boy.  I am married and we have a bilingual (Spanish and English) household.

I have been blogging here at Not Everyone’s Mama since I was pregnant with my youngest daughter in 2006. It started out as, and mainly still is, my diary.  The stories of our lives, the good and the bad, written down.  Eventually, I am going to print this all out into a book for my children to have.

Check out my reviews to see if my style is what you are looking for.

Overview –

A physical product  is required for a review.

Product will not be returned

I DO NOT post press releases without compensation for for-profit businesses.

All shipping costs, duty fees, costs accrued with getting the product to Heather Ayala will be paid for by the company.

For giveaways if I decide that I will hold one for a product, the company will ship the prize directly to the winner. I will hold the giveaway and give the winner’s information to the company.

Books have a longer waiting list in most cases.

If I suit your needs, use the contact form below to shoot me an email.

I am happy to post press releases for nonprofit companies for free.  Press releases with no product sample posted for for-profit companies will have an advertising fee.

Sponsored Post – I will write a minimum 500 word post, including at least 2 links and 2 images, about your site or product.  I control the layout of the post so that it is set up the way my readers are accustomed to seeing.  All links will be no follow as I am not selling the text links, but the written content and space on my blog that I provide.  Posts will be blasted out to my Facebook fan page and profile and also to my Twitter feed – an additional estimated 9000 social media reach.  $40/post
