Before making contact, please read the below as it may answer your question.

What type of books do you usually read?

I read a variety of genres, and mostly read books by authors of marginalised identities. I enjoy science-fiction, fantasy, contemporary, romance, historical fiction, and anthologies. I do not often read horror, thriller, mysteries, and non-fiction.

Do you accept book review requests?

I accept book review requests on a case-by-case basis.

At present, I only accept book review requests of diverse young adult literature (books written by marginalised authors and/or are about marginalised characters), especially Asian literature. If you are interested in requesting a book review, please contact me here.

Do you have an art shop?

At present, I have a Society6 shop, which can be found here: Artfromafriend’s Society6 shop.

May I use or feature your content/art in my blog or personal content?

Please ask me, either via direct message on my Twitter (@artfromafriend) or via email at thequietpond@gmail.com, before using or featuring any of my content. Please do not feature my art without my explicit permission. More often than not I will say yes, as long as you give explicit and visible credit to me and link to either my blog or social media, but asking me before doing anything will be greatly appreciated.

Who draws all the art on this book blog?

All art in The Quiet Pond is drawn by CW unless stated otherwise.
