We aim to promote and offer awareness to books that are newly released or soon to be released. In order to advertise on BookRemarks:
Due to the volume of books received, we typically review books published by major publishing houses. We do not have the manpower to review 100% of the books received (including self-published ones). As of summer 2005, we have received an increase in the number of authors that want their book reviewed. However, we are scaling back and can now approximately 15% of the books received, therefore please DO NOT automatically send us your book for review because we do not have the manpower to review your book; however, if we do read the book, it may take between eight weeks to six months before a review is posted. If you have not seen a review posted of your book within this time frame, it probably will not be reviewed. Although we will not review every book, we can always post Amazon.com links, links to blogs and author sites, and literary events.
We prefer all kinds of contemporary fiction or high-profile biographies, (but we do not review historical, psychological, financial, poetry, or political type books).
You do not have to send us a copy of your book in order to be on this website. But if you do want to send a press kit, a galley or a copy of the finished book (no manuscripts), the address is:
c/o Cydney Rax
P.O. Box 710512
Houston, TX 77271-0512
You do not have to mail the book priority or express; media mail is fine and less expensive.
Periodically, we feature trivia contests or drawings for book giveaways, etc.
Feel free to contact us about new book releases, book signings, and special events. Thanks for your interest in and support of BookRemarks.
