Word Gurgle will accept review requests from independent publishers, eBook publishers, and from requesting authors. The preferred genres are Horror, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Science Fiction, Paranormal, Mystery, Thriller, Crime, Women's Fiction, Literature Fiction (Adult), Middle Grade and Children’s Fiction. However, this does not mean that I will not consider books from other genres, including graphic novels, comics, and non-fiction.
Word Gurgle reserves the right to decline any books received for review, but promises to consider all queries. The goal is to read all accepted novels for review in a timely manner, however, life is life; therefore, sometimes there is a delay.
Word Gurgle will not give a one or two-star review. If the novel is not enjoyed, the review will not be published on the blog, but we will send the review in the email you contacted us with. Constructive criticism is always the target, but as you know, sometimes a story doesn’t sit right with the reader. Books are personal. Please know, reviews are not only posted here on the blog, but they are also posted on Booklikes, Facebook, Library Things, Goodreads, and Amazon. A link back to the blog and review is posted on Twitter.
All queries should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the description and genre. It is recommended to include an Amazon link, or snippet of your book to better judge if the story is the right fit. We will try hard to respond to all emails, even if we are not interested.
Thank you for your consideration.
