If you would like to send us an excerpt of your novel to post on the site, please ensure it is no longer than 800 words and that there is suitable context provided.

  1. How many chapters can I send for review?
    Also, I would like to be a guest blogger when my novel debuts. If that is possible? I would really love the opportunity.

    Still working on the website..

    1. Hi Regie,
      Feel free to send up to three chapters and a guest blog (that is dystopian themed) to and we’ll go from there! If you can send the book cover, a blurb and a bit about yourself too that would be great.

  2. Dear Emily

    We are the publisher of Truth Sister by Phil Gilvin and he mentioned you may be interested in reviewing the book? If so, please could you confirm the address we should send it to?

    Many thanks

    Richard Willis
