ACCEPTS BOOK AND PRODUCT REVIEWS

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 personal 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 I may, or may not, recommend the book or list it on this website.

For films, TV shows, games, foods, events, travel, products, and services, I do review them on my discretion.

If you still want to send me books or invites, please address it to: Marissa U. Bacsa, McArthur Highway, Poblacion 1, Moncada, Tarlac, 2308 Philippines or email: info@issabacsa.com or creativemixedmediafreelancing@gmail.com.

Please take note that I consider crime, suspense/thriller, and mystery genre. I may accept books, films and TV shows in other genre (like romance, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, non-fiction, biographies, etc.) but I don’t read fan fiction.
