The Long and the Short of It hopes to contribute to the Romantic Fiction world in a positive way. Our philosophy is: If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. You'll only find positive reviews on our reviews blog. This doesn't mean we like everything we read -- far from it. What it does mean is, we only post reviews of those books we like. There are enough reviews sites and various blogs that are "snarky" or negative. We do not choose to be one of them. Our policy: If we have a book or story submitted to us for review, and the first reviewer doesn't like it, it is reassigned to another reviewer. If that reviewer doesn't like it, it is forwarded to one of the owners of this site. If we agree with their assessment, an email will be sent to the author, declining to review their story. We strive to be both honest and positive and hope that this resonates with you.
