Dear Authors & Publishers,
Ravenous for Reads is currently accepting review requests for both books and products that pair well with a literature centered life. Prior to sending a request for review, please be sure to read this page and its policies. Time is a finite resource that we highly value and we wouldn’t want it to be wasted. We accept works that have been traditionally published, self-published, and from Indie authors.

Erotica | Romance | Elementary or Middle grade fiction

What you should include in your request:

In addition to reviews, we are open to:
- Author interviews – Generally, we will only consider interviewing authors we’re familiar with or ones we have read and reviewed.
- Exclusive cover reveals + promo blitzes – As a rule, we will only accept requests from authors we know or are a book we’re excited for.
- Blog Blitz
- Blog tours
- Guest blogging – We want to hear from other book bloggers and collaborate with them. This is, after all, a community. Don’t hesitate to contact us if interest in guest blogging. It’s a great way to get exposure and drive traffic to your site.
Our reviewing approach:
- Reviews on Ravenous for Reads are a collection of honest opinions.
- We review with respect and expect respect for our reviews.
- If you are not okay with the idea or possibility of a negative review or critique being written, Ravenous for Reads might not be the best fit for you. By sending a review request, you acknowledge this.
- We respond to the requests we wish to accept, though sometimes we will refer authors to other bloggers we feel might be a better fit. If you do not hear from us after 14 days, that means we are unable to accept your request at this time.
- Our reviews will also be posted on BlogLovin’, Goodreads, Amazon, Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter. All of these reviews will be linked back to our posted review at Ravenous for Reads.
