Review Policy for The Book Smugglers
Ana Grilo and Thea James, The Book Smugglers, are currently open to receiving solicited Advance Reading Copies and Review Copies of books. Our preferred genres are Speculative Fiction (Horror, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Science Fiction), Young Adult (Speculative Fiction/Paranormal and Contemporary), with the occasional Romance novel (Paranormal, Historical, Contemporary). This does not, however, mean that we will not consider books from other genres! We love graphic novels, manga, mysteries, historical fiction, and will consider any book with a great synopsis.
We cannot promise to agree to every review request, nor can we guarantee to review unsolicited review copies of books sent to us. We will consider all queries and review copies sent our way but we regret that we are not able to respond to all email enquiries. If you don’t hear from us in a timely fashion please assume we are not able to accept your request/offer. We regret to say that we are not accepting self-published inquiries at the moment.
Our review copy preference is for ebooks, followed by print copies. As such, digital ARCs/review copies will be given precedence over print copies. Our preferred format is EPUB.
In order to contact us with a review query, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We use NetGalley and Edelweiss for eARCs, so please feel free to contact us via email with queries.
