Who we are
Our website address is: http://www.abakersperspective.com. A Baker’s Perspective is owned and operated by Jessica Baker.
An affiliate link simply means I have a relationship with the seller and if you choose to make a purchase after clicking through to that seller, I will earn a small commission. This is at no extra cost to you but every little bit helps pay the operating costs of this site. I’m not here to make a fortune guys! Just pay for the services needed to keep this blog running 🙂
A Baker’s Perspective participates in the DaySpring Affiliate Program, Day Designer and Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. An affiliate advertising program is designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by displaying advertising and linking to retail sites. While I often provide links to items as part of my reviews, I will not recommend that you purchase a book or other product just so I can get a percentage back. My perspective (review) is always my honest opinion, and you are always free to decide which products you purchase (if any) and from where you purchase them. The ads show items that DaySpring and/or Amazon is offering and I am excited about, although I may not have necessarily purchased the item yet. You are free to make whatever purchases you want from there! See, it’s that easy!
Other links (Goodreads, other retailers, authors, publishers, publicists, etc.) are not affiliate links and will generate no income for A Baker’s Perspective.
Disclosure of Material Connection
I often receive free books (whether egalleys, ARCs, or paperbacks) from publishers, authors, and publicity groups in hopes of an honest review. I am not required to write a positive review, nor any review for that matter. The opinions I express are always my own. Reviews of books which I received free in anticipation of a review will be indicated as such at the end of that particular post. Otherwise, the book was part of my personal collection or borrowed from a library or a friend. I am never paid for a review that appears on this site!
I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
