Becoming a Reviewer for BookBrowse

Reviewer Application Form

Read This First
We currently receive close to 100 reviewer applications a week. So, please save your time and ours by only completing this form after reading some of our reviews and concluding that you can write reviews of an equal standard and you have good quality sample reviews that are at least 300 words long to prove this. You can see some of our reviews in the Editor's Choice block on our homepage and in this sample issue (click on Reviews and Beyond the Book in the vertical menu).


About our reviews and "beyond the book" articles
BookBrowse reviews both adult fiction and nonfiction, and some books for young adults. We look for books that not only are very enjoyable to read, with great characters and storylines, but that also leave you knowing something about the world you didn't before. Reviewers also write a "beyond the book" article for each book they review.

Review frequency and pay
Our reviewers tend to write about one review a month for us, and receive a byline and modest payment.

Can I review for BookBrowse if I'm not based in the USA?
Most of our reviewers are USA based, as is BookBrowse. But we are open to reviewers overseas. However, because we work exclusively with American publishers, it is rare that the publishers can send print copies to addresses outside of the USA. So if you live elsewhere only apply if you have the ability to read ebooks and are comfortable doing so.
