Effective March 10, 2015 we are putting a short hold on accepting new review requests. We are sorry about this, but at this time we are swamped with requests and are currently focusing on those attached to our promotions and some of our backlog.
Please do not email us directly to request a review as those emails will be deleted. We do expect to have the requests re-opened within the next month or two. At this time, your best bet for a review is to request a promotion with us.
Review Policy (as of February 2014):
Romancing the Book’s reviewing services are 100% free, under the condition that a review copy of the said book (either in print or eBook format) is provided. To request a review, please fill out the form with all the required information below. If one of our reviewers is interested in reviewing your book, our review coordinator will be in touch. All direct emails requesting a review will be deleted.
Please keep in mind that all submissions will be considered for review, but not guaranteed unless a review copy is requested by our staff. We read all genres within romance and erotica, as well as some YA. If your book is outside these genres, your chances of a review from us are greatly decreased. We will keep review requests in our database for approximately 1 year from the date it was added.
Our review will post approximately 4-6 weeks after our staff member receives the book. The post will include:
- book cover
- book title and author (linked to author’s website)
- series information (if applicable)
- release date
- number of pages
We also will categorize the review with the following icons:
As part of our service, we will notify you that the review is complete and provide the link to our review. We will also repost our reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and in some cases the publisher’s website. Due to the sheer volume of reviews at RtB, this may not occur until a couple months after the review has been posted on the blog (and we do apologize about this and ask that you don’t email us asking to rush the process).
If you need more information before submitting your request, please email Jen with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not use this email address to submit your request or send an unsolicited copy of the book. These emails will be deleted. That said, if you are a publisher and would like to add us to your review list, contact Jen for details.
Request form has been inactivated as of March 10, 2015. We expect this to only be temporary as we work on some backlog.
