Author/Publisher Information (Get a Book Reviewed)

The Midwest Book Review gives priority consideration to small publishers, self-published authors, academic presses, and specialty publishers whenever possible. Reviewing print books/CDs/DVDs is always free of charge.

There is a charge of a $50 "Reader Fee" for reviewing ebooks, pre-publication manuscripts, galleys, uncorrected proofs, ARCs, and pdf files. If you wish to pursue this option, then send us an email with "Reader Fee Review" in the subject line, and we'll send you the name and email address of the assigned reviewer. The check would be made out to the reviewer, who would also tell you what information would be needed along with a copy of the title to be reviewed.

To submit a print book for review, we require the following:
  1. Two finished copies of the book.

  2. A cover letter.

  3. A publicity or press release. This (or the cover letter) must include either a physical address or an email address to send the review to.

There is an approximate 14 to 16-week "window of opportunity" for a book to be assigned out for review.

If/when a book makes the final cut and is featured, we will automatically send a tear sheet to the publisher for their records. When a book has been submitted on a publisher's behalf by an independent publicist, we will also try to furnish the publicist with a tear sheet for their files as well. It is the publisher's responsibility to inform authors and editors of the review.

As of January 2014, we have instituted a new policy especially for authors and publishers whose book passed the initial screening, but didn't make the final cut because of "too many books, not enough reviewers". These authors or publishers may submit the MBR a review from any other reviewer or review resource, as long as they have that reviewer's permission to do so. We will run the review in our monthly book review publication Reviewer's Bookwatch, under that reviewer's byline. (Of course, the reviewer retains all copyright and ownership rights to their review, just like any other contributor to the Reviewer's Bookwatch.)

This policy is retroactive, so if you have ever submitted a book to the Midwest Book Review in the past and it failed to achieve a review assignment from us, then this offer is open to you.
