The mystery of getting a book in front of legitimate reviewers
baffles most indie authors.
Where do I find these people?
What do I present to them?
Do I send a print book or ebook?

New Releases from...Small Publishers, Artists & Writers Network
Sign up now and be part of New Releases from...
Launched March 25th, the newsletter goes out every quarter to over 1,800 book reviewers and book bloggers. The reviewer list is pulled from Cision, the premiere online media database company that updates its media lists daily and includes top publications, online, and broadcast resources like NPR, daily and weekly newspapers that publish book reviews, and a host of freelancers and bloggers who review books.
Each author submits up to a 75-word description of the book that starts with a catchy log line such as appears in the New York Times Book Review or online at Kirkus Reviews. Log lines are the concise one sentence description of the book usually at the top of the review. We want these descriptions to sound professional and grab reviewers.
Along with the description, an image of the book cover as well as a link for reviewers to request a print or ebook.
