A Call For Reviewable Kids’ Books

Hi everyone!

I start graduate school today, so I don’t have a whole lot of time to blog. But I have a quick announcement/request I want to make:

I will begin reviewing a book a week on here starting next Monday.

If you would like your book reviewed, email me with the following information:

  • Your name.
  • Your pen name (if applicable).
  • The title of your book.
  • The genre of your book.
  • A short synopsis, no longer than two paragraphs.

My email address is morganmarshallliterary@yahoo.com.

I will chose the books that interest me from the emails I receive. If I chose yours, I will reply with a request for you to send a me a review copy and the address where you should send it. I will read and review each title as I receive them, so if you get a request and wish a review as soon as possible, send it to me right away.

Here are the requirements:

  • Your book must be published. I would like to let my readers know where to buy your book, and if it’s not purchasable, this is not possible. That said, I will accept self-published books, of course.
  • Your book must be a children’s book. Middle grade adventures and genre fiction would be best, but I will consider picture books and YA as well. For picture books, I will filter them though my own children for the best opinions straight from the horse’s mouth.
  • You need to be able to send a copy to me at your own expense. I will return the copy if requested, though I would also love to keep them. If you wish to sign your book, that would be awesome but not required. In case you’re wondering why you should bother sending me a review copy at all, I welcome you to read about me and decide for yourself if you feel I am worthy to review your work.
  • My review will include a private e-mailed critique only if requested.

Please know that my reviews will be 100% honest. The last thing I want to do is recommend a book to my readers that is of poor quality. That said, I will write the review in a way that is sensitive to your feelings and will include positives in every review I post. If, in the sad event I can’t find anything positive to say, I will email you a private critique instead.

That is all. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to post them here. Thank you, and I’ll blog at you again soon!

  2. Alright, I’m game.

    I am self-published and have done very well in the UK, but haven’t had as much word of mouth here in the US.

    I’ll work on a synopsis tonight and then ship it off tomorrow. Hopefully you’ll approve.

    • Sounds good. I wish I could just accept everyone’s book, but I don’t want to ask for a ton of books I can’t even read, let a lone review. That wouldn’t be fair to anyone. 🙂
