SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

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.  Not all books submitted will be reviewed, but they will be considered.
    • Please note that if your book is horror, sci-fi or fantasy, chances are that they won’t be picked up at this time due to lack of reviewer interest in these genres.
  • We will only publish honest reviews.
    • If a review will be under 2 stars, we will notify you before publication.
  • We request a kindle compatible (mobi or pdf) ebook copy upon submitting.  We will also review audio and print books, if copies are available.
  • 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.
    • Currently, the turn around for a review is 4-6 weeks.
  • 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.
