Digital Review Copies:
The Lesbrary accepts any books or ebooks with lesbian or bisexual women (or pansexual women, sapphic women, etc) content to review, as long as the main character is a queer woman or the main subject matter is queer women. (We do occasionally review books with non-binary characters as well, so feel free to submit those if they seem relevant to the Lesbrary.) You can submit them by emailing danikaellis at gmail with “Lesbrary” included in the subject, and ideally with the a description of the book in the body of the email and the ebook attached as a file (because different reviewers use different ereaders, your best bet is to attach several different formats–preferably ePub, .mobi, and PDF). The Lesbrary prioritizes books by authors of colour and trans authors, so please indicate that in the email if it applies to your book, as well as author pronouns, if possible. No need to inquire beforehand; we accept any les/bi/etc ebook for review consideration!
eBook submissions are forwarded to all of the reviewers at the Lesbrary. There are usually about a dozen reviewers submitting to the Lesbrary at a time (see the About page). eBooks are reviewed based on interest, which means they may be reviewed right away, multiple times, a year after submitting them, or not at all. If you are interested in guaranteed coverage, please scroll down to the “Sponsored Reviews” section below.
Please note that I forward ebooks along to Lesbrary reviewers, so the easiest way to do this is if the ebook is attached to an email.
Physical books are usually mailed to me, and I can guarantee that if they are accepted for review, they will eventually be reviewed, but there may be a delay–possibly several months– depending on the backlog of books to be reviewed.
I also offer sponsored reviews for $100. This means that Danika will honestly review your book at a time we both negotiate on (at least two weeks’ notice needed) and the review will be crossposted on Amazon and Goodreads. This review will be marked as a sponsored review. The fee will be paid through Paypal. This is an option if you would like to guarantee a review and have it posted by a certain time. You can check out my reviews here and can email me at email@example.com. Please include “Lesbrary” in the subject. Please note that this does not guarantee a five star, raving review; it only guarantees an honest one.
Alternatively, you can also sponsor a video that will incorporate your book (though not necessarily review it) for $50. It would cross-posted at the Lesbrary and tumblr. (See my previous videos here).
