Submission Guidelines

BookPage reviews almost every category of new books, including literary and popular fiction, nonfiction, children's books, audiobooks and gift books. We rarely review poetry or scholarly books, and we do not give review consideration to self-published books, print-on-demand titles or books from presses that lack major distribution.

To have your book considered for review in BookPage, send an advance review copy at least three months prior to a title's publication date. Early receipt of a galley or bound manuscript gives us adequate time to assess the quality of a book and assign it to an appropriate reviewer. If no galleys are available, send a finished book as soon as possible. Please be aware, however, that we cannot consider a book for review if we receive it after the publication date.

Along with your galley, include a letter with the name, phone number and e-mail address of a publicity contact for the book. The letter should also include the book's publication date, price, number of pages and ISBN number.
