Book Review Submission Guidelines

If you’d like to submit a book to be reviewed (whether you are the author or not), please fill out the following form. I’m always on the lookout for new books to read, and I would welcome your suggestions.

I review science-fiction, fantasy, and literary fiction, primarily, but I also read young adult romancenonfiction, and Christian fiction on occasion.

Please note that, due to the nature of my reviews, I will only write a Writerlea Book Review if I can finish the book. I close books for the following reasons

  • Violence
  • Language
  • Graphic Content (anything beyond a PG-13 film rating; I elaborate on this here)
  • Dark or creepy narration or plot
  • Excessive writing errors

If you are the author of the book (indie/self published or otherwise), please look at the format of my reviews before you submit a request. I’m not necessarily the easiest reviewer, and there is a great deal of attention given to how well a novel is written.

I’d be happy to help give you suggestions and writing advice on what you’ve written through the “Writing that Scene” feature, but in a Writerlea Book Review, I treat all books equally, expecting commercial-fiction-level-writing from whatever I’m reading.

Thanks for your interest!
