Please read below before submitting your book for review.

Thank you for your interest in Novels Alive. We are excited that you want to submit your work for us to review. Please read the information below carefully as it outlines our Terms of Review.

Our reviewers are from varied backgrounds, ranging from published authors to “average Joe” connoisseurs of the written word. Each of our reviewers takes what they do very seriously, putting a lot of thought and time into the reviews they write in their own style.

Please note, due to the “family-friendly” nature of our site, we do not review erotica.

Things you should know before submitting your work:

  • We reserve the right to refuse submissions that do not fall within the preset categories of Novels Alive
  • Submitted novels will not be returned unless arrangements are made prior to submitting the book.
  • Previews of reviews are provided upon prior request. The author or the publisher must provide the reviewer with appropriate emails upon submission.
  • We will only publish honest reviews.
  • We do not “freeze” or stop reviews once you have submitted your work. Reviewers are taking time out of their schedules to read your work, and their reviews will be published to our site.
  • Email notification of the posted review will be provided upon request at the time of submission.
  • Due to the volunteer status of our reviewers, Novels Alive cannot guarantee a time frame for the posting of reviews. If a quick review is required, please include this information for consideration at the time of submission and we will work with you to accommodate this request. Backlisted titles will take longer to review as new releases take priority.
  • If you submit a series for review, and a reviewer picks it, they will review all books in your series and any future releases in the series.

Permission to repost a NovelsAlive review will be granted to authors and publishers only with a link back to the review and/or site.
