Frequently Asked Questions About the Blog

If you have a query about my blog, the FAQs below might answer it for you. If not, you can always contact me.


Can I use any of the images or text from your blog?

Unless otherwise stated, the texts and images on this blog are the sole intellectual property of myself (Anstice V Brown, known as Tizzy Brown). If you wish to copy, alter or use my text or images in any way, I insist that you email me to request permission. In most cases I will grant you permission to use my work if it’s not for commercial purposes, as long as you credit me and link back to me, but you must email me to get permission first.

Occasionally, I have used the work of other photographers, artists or bloggers, either under a Creative Commons licence or with explicit permission. In these instances, I have given credit and linked back to them so please do not use these files without seeking permission from the copyright holder yourself.


Where did you get your layout?

The layout template is the Tweak Me 2.0 theme by Nose Graze and I highly recommend it due to its versatility. The template customisations, including the blog header and other style elements, were created by myself.


Do you earn money from this blog?

I don’t earn any money for writing book reviews or other blog posts. However, I do earn a small amount from affiliate links displayed on this blog, which helps me cover the cost of web hosting and other resources.

I love participating in blog tours, cover reveals, author interviews and street teams to promote books that I like. Please visit the Author Services page for more information.

Of course! If your blogfest or giveaway is about writing, books, art or anything else creative, feel free to drop me a line and I’ll write a post about it and/or promote it on social media.
