List of Reviewers for Traditionally Published Books

Below is a list of reviewers who exclusively review works that have been published by publishing houses (large and small).

If you have published through a large (or small) publisher, why would you need to contact reviewers? Shouldn't your publisher take care of that?

And if you have self-published, or are considering self-publishing, why you would need a list of reviewers who only review books published through traditional houses?

The answer is:

1) Even if you have self-published a book, you may have published short stories in literary magazines. If you decide to sell your published stories on Amazon (and I hope you consider doing that because it's a good way to get readers), they will need reviews, and 2) Publishers do the bare minimum - if anything - to secure reviews.

No matter how you publish, it's up to you to find reviewers.

Many of the reviewers on this list have heavily trafficked sites, and they cross post their reviews on other sites, which means even one well-placed review can reach a broad audience. Most will accept ebooks and/or PDF files, which cuts down on shipping costs. (Make sure you have a PDF file as well as a mobi file of your book to send to reviewers.)

As always, read review guidelines carefully, and follow them.

  1. Thanks again for putting this list together again, Erica. As a note to other self-published authors out there, every single reviewer I checked from this month's list (all the ones who review science fiction), does not review self-published books.

    ReplyDelete
  2. This list is not for self-published books. My previous list is for self-publishers:
