Book Review Policy and Requests

Review Policy

We review romance novels including: paranormal, historical, contemporary, urban fantasy, and GLBT.

Please consider the following before submitting a book for review:

  • We select books that appeal to us based on blurbs, excerpts and other information, however acceptance does not guarantee a review.
  • We do not send out email notification to authors when a review has been posted.
  • We only accept ebooks. We are established as a review site with most publishers, so if you only have print books for review, you can ask your publicist to send us a print copy if your book is accepted for review.

Other Blog Business

We will consider requests for guest posts, interviews and events. Sophia (sophia at fictionvixen dot com) is the point of contact for these requests, scheduling and all other blog business.

Request a Review

If you are a publisher/publicist/review coordinator, and would like to submit a list of books for consideration you may email your list to Sophia at fictionvixen dot com. Please include blurbs and/or a link with additional information on each book with your submissions.

For single submissions please use the form below to a request a review. This is the best way to make sure all of our reviewers know your book is available for review. Once you click submit, your request will be saved to our database and emailed to our reviewers. If one of our reviewers selects your book for review, Sophia will contact you to arrange delivery.

  • If you are a publicist/author's assistant/review coordinator please tell us your name.
  • Self-published books are accepted. Enter "self-published" in the publisher field if the book you are requesting a review for is self-published.

We currently have six reviewers at Fiction Vixen. All opinions expressed here are those of the reviewer/contributor and do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of the other contributors to the blog.
