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:
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.
