Please review the submission criteria below, which are applied to all books submitted for review at BookBrowse. These are
provided to ensure that you have a clear idea of the kinds of books we feature, and do not put your time and effort into
suggesting a book which is not a good match.
We strongly encourage you not to send us copies of books unless we have specifically requested that a copy be sent directly to one of our reviewers. The vast majority of unsolicited books sent to us are donated to our local "Friends of the Library" group unopened. Whereas over 80% of the books that we specifically request for review end up being featured at BookBrowse. So, please save your money and don't send us a copy of your book unless we've asked for it.
We do not accept payments to review books and becoming a member of BookBrowse does not give you an advantage over others when it comes to having your book reviewed. We do post author interviews and reading guides, but only when they are supporting a book that we are recommending.

If your book meets all the criteria above, please click below and complete the online submission form.
We will acknowledge receipt of your submission immediately. Then we will put it in the queue of submitted titles. We look closely at every submission and will be in touch a.s.a.p. to request a review copy if we think we might be able to feature your book. We only request books that we are genuinely interested in and ask that they be sent directly to the reviewer who will read it. Of those books that we request, we end up reviewing about four out of five.
In a perfect world we would like to write a detailed response to every person explaining why his/her book has or has not been shortlisted for BookBrowse but, unfortunately, time restraints and the sheer quantity of submissions do not allow us to enter into this level of dialogue. Thus, in general, after the initial email confirming that we have received your submission, you will not hear from me again unless it is to request a review copy.
As already mentioned, with a format that allows us to recommend only about 30 titles each month, we must reject many more books than we can accept. Many factors influence our decision, the perceived 'quality' of the book being only one of them. Other factors include the level of interest BookBrowse's audience have in a particular theme/genre and the number of books already scheduled for a particular time period (at any given time we are usually scheduled about 2 months in advance).
