I wish I could respond faster, but I’m a little slow these days. (Okay, maybe a lot slow. Like a lot a lot slow.) It isn’t you! It’s me! Really! You’re fantastic, I’m the one trying to figure out how to juggle a couple of things. I do appreciate your emails. To find someone who responds faster, see below!
As of June 2018, I’m not accepting books for the foreseeable future. But an interview about your (or your client’s) creative process and your (or your client’s) picture book, graphic novel, and/or illustrated work (for children to young adults) may be possible. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please take a look below if you’re looking to get your book reviewed. There are a lot of wonderful children’s book reviewers and bloggers out there!
http://kidlitosphere.org/bloggers/ also has a great list of reviewers. If you have a wordpress account, go into the wordpress reader and use tags like Picture Book or Picture Books to discover more.
Kirkus Reviews, for a fee, does accept self-published books for review under their Indie label. My understanding is that they will review your book — positive or negative. You will get a professional review.
Booklist Online also accepts self-published books. I’m not sure if they charge and there is no guarantee they will review your book. Click the link to learn more about them. Librarians read Booklist and often times use the reviews from them to decide whether or not to purchase books for their library.
School Library Journal also accepts books for review. I’m not sure if they charge and there is no guarantee they will review your book. School librarians read school library journal (and Kirkus and Horn Book and Booklist) to decide what books to buy for their libraries.
The Horn Book also accepts reviews and a lot of different people read The Horn Book. I’m not sure if they charge and there is no guarantee they will review your book. They are very, very, very selective.
Publishers Weekly has their guidelines here for submitting a book for review. They do accept self-published books for review and it does not appear that they charge. They do not guarantee that your book will be reviewed, but I do know of successful self-published books that have been reviewed.
This is what I know so far. I’ll update you as I learn more.
