Product Reviews

I accept products that are of use and interest to women in general that I would personally make use of or have no inhibitions regarding recommendations. Under most circumstances receiving the product is "payment" for a review. All reviews are honest and tasteful regardless of opinion. Payment or receipt of product(s) does not and will not guarantee a specific review. Links to product, retail and service sites will be provided with no specifications on the number of links unless arranged prior to posting between myself and advertiser or their representative. I will, however, automatically include one link and social media links as necessary or requested. There is a fee for additional links.

If it's a product that is used by or of interest to women, mothers and caregivers then this is the ideal place to feature it. I look forward to discussing your product review needs and the opportunity to work with you to market and build excitement about your product.

Book Reviews

At this time, books are not being accepted for review. 


It is an honor to host your giveaway on Petula Writes. I enjoy offering my readers fun opportunities to win sought-after prizes. The "payment" is the item or similar item as is being given away and/or gift card to the specific retailer. In order for items to be reviewed in conjunction with your giveaway, the product must be provided free of charge to facilitate the review and a fee of $10 for administrative fees.

Guest posts are published at no cost with an agreement to work with me in promoting your content to garner maximum impact. However, if you're promoting a product or service a base fee may be requested.

Your content will be promoted on a minimum of two of the following networks:

Sponsors and guests are required to provide their own images in jpg or png formats.
