Submission details

Last update: September 03, 2014

We are currently experiencing an extremely high volume of submissions and we are struggling to review 1 in 50. We have never be able to keep up with the demand for reviews but we do try extremely hard to cover as many titles as possible, and not just from the major publishers but also from the independently and self-published.

So please feel free to email a book’s details through to [email protected] and your email will be visible to the site’s reviewers. Hopefully it will appeal and we will be back in touch for a review copy. We can guarantee that every email will be read but unfortunately we are not able to reply to every submission, so please don’t think us rude if you do not receive an email back.

Can you please include the following information in all emails:

The Scratch My Back Scheme

On two occasions we trialled a scheme whereby authors anonymously read and reviewed each others’ work. While this led to excellent reviews and allowed us to cover more titles the amount of work involved in organisation, the difficulties that arose from negative reviews, and the failure of a small number to fulfil their obligations left us with no alternative but to put a stop to the scheme. There is little likelihood of the scheme being run again in the future.

  1. Dear Fantasy Book Review Team

    I am glad to know that there is a provision for an author to get his book reviewed by your expert team.
    The details of the book written are as follows :

    Book Name : – The True Heir Of Jungle

    Book Author : – SKY G (Shannkey Goyal)

    Synopsis/blurb : – Simba was looking for his successor to rule Gir forest. Gir was considered the best forest by animals to live in. It was the popularity of their just king Simba that pulled animals from all other forest to Gir.

    His three sons Baghira, Raghav and Jaggi were equally capable making it more difficult for Simba to choose. He thought of a series of three tests full of adventures, to choose his heir to the throne. He wanted the king to be just, brave, patient, intelligent and compassionate. Most importantly, for him a king had to be a leader who had the quality to win trust of others.

    How Simba’s sons faced snakes and human attacks in their challenges and how they overcame those challenges thrown at them? But they were clueless when they found a 20 feet huge monkey strong enough to defeat a grown up elephant in a duel.

    Three brothers faced tough challenges that almost killed them. How the challenges set up by their father changed their enviousness into love for each other?

  2. Hi guys,

    I am writing to enquire if you would consider reviewing a new YA speculative fantasy series, written by myself and my co-author, Paul Stuempel. The saga has been imagined and developed over the course of four decades, and has been brought to the publication stage after an intensive two years of writing and editing. We also have an audio book version of Augee: Guardian of Hohala due for release, and there are chapter samples available at augee.com/listen

    Please see below a synopsis of both books as well as some general information about the series and its authors.

    Further information about Augee and its authors can be found at:

    augee.com

    facebook.com/augeebook

    twitter.com/augeebook

    If you would like me to mail you a physical copies, I will be happy to do so.

    Sincere thanks, and I hope to hear from you.

    Sincerely,

    Cormac Lambe (BA, Dip. Ed., MA, PhD)

    Co-author: Augee: Guardian of Hohala

    About the authors:

    Paul Stuempel is a native of Fort Thomas, Kentucky. His debut novel, Augee: Guardian of Hohala, is the first in the Augee series, an original saga imagined over four decades. Paul is based in Dayton, Kentucky.

    Cormac Lambe is a writer, editor and educator from Dundalk, Ireland, residing in Atlanta, Georgia. He is the co-author and editor of Language Arts for Advanced Learners: Grades 6-8 (Allwrite Publishing, 2016) and editor of the forthcoming The Giantess from the Irish of Oisín (date TBC), a rare collection of Irish poetry previously published in 1833.

    Please note:

    Further information about Augee: Guardian of Hohala and Augee: The Reawakening can be found at AUGEE.COM

    ********************************************************************************************

    Augee: Guardian of Hohala tells the story of the Hohalians—a nonviolent people who live in abundance in a remote, idyllic country protected by their kindly gods. Across the ocean from Hohala, another nation, the Volcarons, lives in destitution; led by a psychotic genius named Morgoratt, the Volcarons embark on a voyage to conquer Hohala and kill off the natives. When the peace-loving king of Hohala orders his citizens to go into exile to avoid bloodshed, a young rebel, Nicholas Stone, abandons his people—and his love interest, the Hohalian princess—to travel into the wilderness in search of a miracle, guided by what he believes is the mysterious hand of the gods. After an arduous journey into the unknown, Nicholas discovers a peculiar, fire-breathing infant creature, who he names Augee. As he grows, it is discovered that Augee, once angered, exhibits power of terrible fury, and Nicholas and he decide to rise up against the merciless Volcarons in the face of the rest of Hohalian people’s inaction.

    Augee: The Reawakening: In the aftermath of the Volcaron invasion of their country, the defeated people of Hohala remain helpless and lost in the wilderness. Persecuted and broken, the Hohalian survivors begin to abandon all expectation for their deliverance—that is, until far away events prompt the return of a stranger and a flicker of hope for Hohala’s liberation.

    Aimed at discerning young adult / adult readers, Augee: Guardian of Hohala and Augee: The Reawakening provide suspense, adventure, romance, magic, and mystery, and examines topical themes such as displacement, despotism and discrimination, broadly calling into question the justice of a world in which all people are not created equal. Throughout the Augee series, there is a pointed intention to cast critiquing light on some of the social injustices and political anomalies of our current moment.

    Augee represents speculative fantasy fiction; its plot is underpinned by a magical/otherworldly system that is original, thorough and intricately-developed, and has been written as part of a trilogy.

    Augee can be compared to Prophecy of the Kings, by David J. Burrows, Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien and Ronlyn Domingue’s Keeper of Tales trilogy.

  3. Linda,

    The Boy With No Shoes is a book that moves you so much. My wife could not read past the first few chapters due to it being too upsetting. I’ve lost my copy & I must purchase it again.

    If you find yourself in a dark place, reach out for help. Ideally a qualified professional. Don’t suffer alone & in silence.

    Lee.

  8. Good morning!

    I wrote a letter to [email protected] twice but haven’t got the answer yet. I think it can be in spam folder. Could you please have a look at my email. The theme “Asking for permission to use the review”.

    Sincerely, Robert.

  9. Hello!
    Brilliant site – helps me find my next best read!
    I’ve been trying to send you an email but it keeps failing to send due to full inbox. I was just wondering if there were any book reviewing opportunities available for the website?
    I love reading and really enjoy reviewing books as well. It would be really fantastic to review fantasy books as it’s my preferred genre!
    I have written some reviews previously and have my own blog which I can send in if you would like to see my work if you have any reviewing vacancies.
    Thanks!

  10. Great site.

    I’ve been trying to contact you via email but your inbox is full. Thought I’d try posting a note here to let you know.

    Keep up the good work.

  11. Hello…

    First and foremost I love this site! Thanks for the amazing work that you do! I have been able to enjoy many new world’s and wonderful characters because of the work that you all do. I express my gratitude.

    I know that you must be extremely busy with many wonderful books to read and review. Might I suggest a series that I feel would be a great asset to your website. The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander. These books shaped my childhood, and as cliche and sappy as it sounds, the characters feel like old friends. They are great reads intended for children, however they hold wonderful nuggets of wisdom for older generations as well.

    The series is a coming of age story of young Taran the assistant pig keeper who longs to be a hero. Based in the world of Prydain which is based on Welsh mythology. The series has five books, starting with The Book of Three. They are some of my favorite books. I hope you find the time to try them out. Thanks.

  12. Hi Char,
    This might be the book you are asking about. It is titled, “The Coming Race” written by Edward Bulwer Lytton. It was published in 1871. It is about a subterranean race, with an energy form called “Veil”.
    I hope this is what you are looking for, and that your Mom will enjoy hearing it.
    Cheers
    Mark

  13. Hi Char,

    I’m afraid the book doesn’t ring a bell with me, although I must admit it sounds really good. Hopefully someone else reading this will instantly know the book to which you refer.

    Thanks,
    Lee

  14. Hello…
    Around 20 years ago, Mother lent me an old fantasy book
    I remember it was lost somehow – lent to a cousin or vanished into the thin…
    I cannot remember the title, needless to say she was very disappointed. Now years later the idea of finding that book has popped into my head, I cannot stop thinking how much I would love to read it to her-she has the onset of dementia…
    I waffle…
    The story of a city under the desert, a young man finding a civilisation underground, it had water canals, gondola type boats, buildings, big machinery creating caves and staircases… a utopian kind of existence. Almost Roman like cloaks etc…
    It was a very old book maybe circa late 1800’s? Is there any hope? Kind regards Char.L

  15. Hi Jamie,

    I am not familiar with that book and my internet searches did not return anything remotely close to the book you describe.

    Hopefully somebody reading this page will instantly know the title of the book which you have referred to.

    Thanks,
    Lee

  16. HI,
    I am looking for a novel I read way back in the 1970s. I believe it was a book written by an English author because the setting was under an estate house and the characters were, I believe, anthropomorphic hedgehogs. They lived in a world with 2 conflicting tribes on either side of a lake, and I seem to remember that it was always light. I remember that at the end, the main character, or one of the main characters, wander out from under the house into the grounds and began to revert to being just an ordinary animal. I have tried on several occasions to find some information about this book, which I would dearly like to reread. I was living in Canada at the time and found the book in the Winnipeg public library. Thank you for any help you can give me.

  17. Hi,

    I am a translator from English into French. A French publisher looking for original work in English in the following genres : quality detective stories / fantasy / “atypical” novels or short stories – has asked me to source creative work in English with the aim of producing French translations if they fit in with their editorial line.

    Would you be able to recommend a few titles/authors? They would need to be relatively unknown as yet, and show very good potential as “best-sellers”, possibly worthy of being adapted for TV or film production.
    I look forward to your reply.
    Jean-Paul DESHAYES
