__________________________________________________________________________

The time has come. 

I've been thinking about getting a blog partner / contributor for quite a while now, and while it's not an easy decision, I decided it's time to give this idea a shot. Life's been getting really busy recently. Between book reviews, blog events, vector and web designs and my personal life, it's been pretty tough keeping up with it all. I love blogging and I do not want this fun experience to turn into a chore, and so I thought I could use a team of devoted book lovers to back me up. Together, we can take Bookish to a next level and build something really cool, plan more exciting events and contribute to the book community in more ways! 

Starting today, I am accepting applications for the following positions:

Teen Reviewer  [position filled]

- Age 15-18, US or Canada based, passionate about YA books. 
Love YA? Want to share your thoughts on books with the rest of the world? I am looking for a dedicated and reliable young person willing to write medium-length reviews of YA books only. Please only apply if you are willing to contribute a minimum of 2 reviews per month (ideally, I'd love to have at least 4, but I understand that high school life is really busy!). Please note: I will not be sending you any books for review personally, though when we have established a partnership (a 2 month trial with at least 5 reviews of your own books), I will begin requesting review copies from the publishers to be sent directly to you. 

Para-lover  [position filled]

- 18 and older, US or Canada based, genre: paranormal (romance), urban fantasy
Love sexy vampires, werewolves and other paranormal creatures? Interested in urban fantasy books? I'm looking for someone with real passion for adult, spicy otherworldly stories! A permanent reviewer position is available. Once we have established a trusted relationship I will be putting you in contact with TOR Books and TOR Fantasy and review copies of the hottest new releases will be arriving right at your doorstep! (please note: a 2 month trial with at least 5 reviews of your own books will apply). You will also have the opportunity to interview authors, arrange guest posts and grow your online presence! Reviewer would have to be willing to accept both eBooks and physical copies for review, as well as occasionally review their own books. Please only apply if you are able to provide a minimum of 4 reviews per month.

Indie Enthusiast  [position filled]

- 16 and older, International, genre: cross-genre (mostly YA and NA)
Love Indie authors? A huge fan of self published books? Want to share some of that love with us?! Apply  today and let your opinion be heard! Reviewer must be willing to accept ebook copies. Please apply only if you are able to provide at least 3 reviews per month. Once we have established a trusted relationship I will arrange review copies for you and/or put you in contact with authors and Indie Press. This is a permanent / long-term position.

General Reviewer  [position filled]

- 18 and older, US or Canada based, cross-genre (Adult, YA, NA, MG)
Are you an eclectic reader? Love YA but also enjoy NA, MG and Adult books? Well, this is the position for you! Full flexibility - you read what you want when you want. You are more than welcome to arrange author interviews and guest posts to go along with your reviews. After we have established a trusted relationship I will arrange review copies to be sent directly to you from the publishers (please note: a 2 month trial with at least 5 reviews of your own books will apply). Reviewer must be willing to accept both ebooks and physical copies. NetGalley and/or Edelweiss account will be required (no worries, it's free!). Please apply only if you are able to provide at least 4 reviews per month. This is a permanent / long-term position with many perks!

APPLY NOW!

These are all the positions available at the moment. 
If you are interested in one of them, please send a short introduction email with a sample review to evieseo@gmail.com 
In your email, please tell me a little bit about yourself, your reading preferences, etc.
Please include links to your Twitter account, Facebook Page, Goodreads and any other social media. 

If you are accepted, you will be asked to provide a picture of yourself for a personalized avatar to go along with all your reviews. You will then get your own signature and a permanent "about me" space in the sidebar. After two month trial, you will be able to contact publishers for review copies and arrange author interviews as a blog contributor at Bookish, but please note that you will be responsible for reviewing any and all books requested in the name of the blog. 

Please do not apply if you are only interested in free books. I am not looking for book collectors, I am looking for reliable blog partners.

Please note: any reviews you write for Bookish can (but don't have to) also be posted on your personal Goodreads/Shelfari account, Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Indiebound, Book Depository, etc. Under no circumstances, however, should they be posted on any other blog, website or review platform. 

Looking forward to working with you guys!
