Question: Once my book is completed, where can I can get it reviewed?
Answer: There are many publications that review books. The best known are Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, and Library Journal. These publications typically take a few months to publish a review and they expect that your book’s release date does not precede the publication of their review. There are no guarantees that your book will get reviewed, but all you need to do is send an advanced reading copy of your book with a cover letter. Major publishing companies usually print up special copies for reviewers, however, if you have self-published your book, you can simply put a sticker on the cover that states: Advanced Reading Copy.
You can also pay a periodical to print a review on your book. Of course, this does not guarantee that you will receive a positive review, but getting reviewed is one important tool in building interest for your work. Below are some publications that offer reviews.
1) Clarion (sister company of Foreword Magazine)
2) Kirkus Indie (sister company of Kirkus)
