I often receive free books (whether ARCs, pdf copies, or paperbacks) from publishers, authors, and publicity groups in exchange for only my honest review. I am not required to write a positive review. The opinions I express are always my own. Reviews of books which I received free in anticipation of a review will be indicated as such at the end of that particular post. Otherwise, the book was part of my personal collection or borrowed from a library. I am never paid for a review that appears on Purely by Faith Reviews.
I currently receive free books in exchange for reviews from these programs:
Amazon requires that I post the below disclaimer on my web page. It is also located on the sidebar on the home page.
“Purely by Faith Reviews is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. The owner of this site will earn a percentage of the money you pay if you click on the link and buy the product.”
Purely by Faith Reviews is an affiliate of Amazon.com. As such, my reviews contain affiliate links. When you click on those links and purchase the product offered, I receive a small percentage of that purchase, at no extra cost to you! While I will often use an affiliate link to indicate where to purchase the book in my review posts, I will never recommend that you purchase a book or product just because I get a percentage back. If I don’t think it’s a good book, I will be clear in my review. As always, you the reader are free to decide to choose which books you’d like to purchase based on my reviews and from where you purchase them.
Any earnings from affiliate links are used mostly to obtain more books for review. Once in a while, there may be an exception (such as purchasing a gift for someone, which would be the main reason).
