Review Policies and Submission Guidelines

Posted on by

What We Review

Anything with main characters on the LGBTQ spectrum is eligible for consideration.  We do not, at this time, review mainstream fiction or heterosexual romance titles.

We prefer review copies to be EPUB format.  We will also accept MOBI, PRC, or PDF.  Paperbacks are accepted on a case by case basis.

All Advance Reader Copies and Review Copies for consideration by Prism Book Alliance® should be sent only upon request and only to the site owner.  All review copies sent unsolicited will be deleted.

How To Request a Review or a Guest Spot

Please use the Contact Us page (accessed through the link or the menu).  Please provide as much information about the work in question as possible.

Once your book has been accepted for review, please use the Submit an eBook for Review form to sbmit the ebook to Prism Book Alliance®.

To submit a guest post or interview, please use the Submit a Guest Post form.

For Publishers

We love working with publishers of LGTBQ literature.  If we do not already have a review relationship established, we would be open to establishing one.

Remember this only facilitates your titles being considered for review, it does not in any way guarantee a specific rating or guarantee a particular title will be chosen.

You may use the Contact Us form linked in the menu to discuss.

Once your book has been accepted for review, please use the Submit an eBook for Review form

To submit a guest post or interview, please use the Submit a Guest Post form. All guest posts MUST contain unique content or your post will not run

Timelines for Reviews

All review requests are eligible for selection by one of the team members for approximately 1 month.  After that time, the title will be removed from the Open Requests list.

While I wish I had time to email each author, publicist, agent, & publisher individually when a title is not picked up, I do not.  Once the title is on the list, you will only receive an email of acceptance (i.e. the request for the review copy).

Once a title has been selected for review, we make every effort to have the review done within 2 weeks to 1 month.  This is not always possible, and is not a guaranteed timeline.

Guest Appearances, Blog Tours, Interviews, etc

We welcome authors whose work fits our site to request guest space on the blog for the purpose of interviews, guest posts, spotlights, blog tours, etc.  These may or may not accompany a review.

All guest posts MUST contain unique content or your post will not run

Please note, guest posts and reviews are independent of one another.  Inclusion of a guest spot does not guarantee a favorable review or a review at all.  The opposite is also true.

I encourage you to book guest dates early.  We book guests Monday-Friday only and can fill up quickly.

To submit a guest post or interview, please use the Submit a Guest Post form no later than 48 hours before the scheduled appearance.

Please Note: Prism Book Alliance® assumes no liability for the ownership of photos or content used in guest posts and interviews.  The post author assumes all responsibility and liability for this content.  By submitting content to Prism Book Alliance® you are asserting that you own the rights to posts said images.

Giveaways

We welcome giveaways on guest posts, interviews, and other promotional content.  Post author is responsible for choosing a winner in accordance with all local laws and statutes.

All winners should be chosen in using a random method (such as random.org).

Prism Recommended Reads

These are titles that are chosen monthly by our team from the reviews published within the month.  The only thing you need to do to be eligible is submit a work for review.

Compensation

We do not receive compensation from publishers, authors, agents, publicists, or other author representatives in exchange for reviews or guest posts.

We do acknowledge and appreciate Advanced Reader Copies and Review Copies of works, without which the site could not include reviews for established, new, and aspiring authors

Advertising and Reviews

Advertising on Prism Book Alliance® is independent of reviews.  Buying advertising will not guarantee a review or rating.
