Getting Book Reviews – Submission Guidelines for 21 Top Book Reviewers

Getting Book Reviews - Submission Guidelines

I keep this list pretty current. Some book review sites will only look at galleys or advance review copies three to four months prior to publication. Others will only look at recently pubished books.

Look before you invest the money and send off a package to be sure you send the right package to the right media. Make sure it’s a match.

Here are submission guidelines at 21 top book review publications:

Publishers Weekly

Library Journal

School Library Journal


Choice Magazine

Foreword Magazine

Book Page

Boston Globe Horn Book

Midwest Book Review

Book Links

Washington Post Book World

Heartland Reviews

Chicago Review

Kirkus Reviews

Kirkus Discoveries

Rain Taxi Review of Books

New York Review of Books

Bloomsbury Review


The Quarterly Conversation

Romantic Times

If you really want to do the right job, you need to create a custom list of the right book reviewers for your book. There are over 1800 book reviewers in the US and Canada right now.

Call me if you want help narrowing down the list and contacting the right reviewers for you.

Next post will be all about book bloggers.
