We accept submissions of individual reviews from book bloggers, but you can also apply to join our review team if you would like to contribute on a regular basis.
Review Submission Requirements
Every quarter, we accept up to three reviews from book bloggers. Please read the requirements below carefully before submitting. Any submissions received that do not conform to these requirements may be deleted. Please note that by sending your submission, you are agreeing to the publication terms below.
We accept reviews of books by self-published and hybrid (part self-published, part traditionally-published) authors. Please note that authors whose books are published by indie publishers are not generally considered to be indie authors by this publication (unless the author is not independent from the publisher, e.g. Josie Jaffrey controls Silver Sun Books).
All reviews must be of books that fit within one of the themes of the relevant issue (for example, the themes for Issue 1 are Vampires and Voyages).
Submit by email to indiebitesreviews[at]hotmail[dot]com using the subject line SUBMISSION: [Review] of [title/author]. Please include the following in your email:
the review you are submitting, pasted into the body of your email (we do not open text attachments);
a short description of why your review is appropriate for this particular issue of the anthology;
a two-sentence bio;
your blog/website link; and
copy and paste this statement into the body of your email: 'I have read and agree to the Terms of Publication on your website'.
