Terms & Conditions checked

UPDATED: 18 December 2017

Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before using the website, including its mobile version, operated by Marissa N. Uycoco-Bacsa.

This website provides crime fiction, information on creative fiction writing, and other related topics. The site publishes good, original content under the following terms and conditions:


Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use the Service. By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service.


As a web visitor, you agree not to publish, post, or transmit any unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, or racially or ethnically derogatory content, or any content expressing hate towards any person or groups of persons due to race, religion, color, creed, national origin, or sexual orientation. You agree not to post or otherwise make available any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, junk mail, spam, chain letters, pyramid schemes, or any other form of illegal solicitation. Any unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, junk mail, spam, chain letters, pyramid schemes, or any other form of illegal solicitation will be blacklisted.


The books I have featured here are mine and have them in my possession — either as an e-book or hard copy. I don’t rank them but I do try to rate them according to my opinion.

However, if you want to send me a free or pre-release copy of a new thriller, mystery, or crime fiction please feel encouraged to do so. I would like to meet other authors, too! I may or may not acknowledge, read, review, rate or return the book and I will not pay any shipping. And of course, I may, or may not, recommend the book or list it on this web site. If you still want to send me books, please address it to: Marissa U. Bacsa, McArthur Highway, Poblacion 1, Moncada, Tarlac, 2308 Philippines or email: info@issabacsa.com.

Please take note that I focus on crime fiction, and I also consider suspense/thrillers and mysteries. I may accept books in other genre (like romance, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, non-fiction, biographies, etc.) but I don’t read fan fiction.


issabacsa.com makes no warranties of any kind, whether expressed or implied, for the products, services, or information provided here. You agree that this website and its owner shall not be liable for any losses or damages of any kind to you including, but not limited to, those that may result from service interruptions or delays.


You’ll notice some links to other sites. While the practice is encouraged, it doesn’t mean I’ve checked these sites regularly to see what’s going on. Please don’t blame me if some sites I linked to is bad or has content that you may find inappropriate or offensive. I’ll try my best to update all bad links found as soon as I can.


I am affiliated with few companies whose products and/or services I promote on this site. As an affiliate, I provide links and in return, receive compensation for sales the other sites generate. Be aware that some of the links on this site are affiliate links which means that I could get paid when you buy after clicking on a link.


I reserve the right, at my sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material I will try to provide at least 30 days’ notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at my sole discretion.

If you have any questions on the terms and conditions I’ve provided herein, let me know.
