Review Policy

All reviews posted to Book Den are my unbiased, personal opinion. Please note: Acceptance of a review copy does not guarantee a review will be published. Reviews posted to Book Den may also be posted to Goodreads, Booklikes, Amazon, or Smashwords.

I mostly review speculative fiction that contains elements of dark fantasy. I review books of all age levels. I am currently seeking contributions (via guest posts) to my Horror Spotlight feature.


Authors: I am currently accepting review requests directly from the author for horror books only.

Publicists: I am currently accepting review requests for speculative fiction. All science fiction, fantasy, horror, and thrillers will be considered. (All age levels.)

No romance or historical fiction, please.

Print copies, ebooks in epub format, or audiobooks are preferred, but other formats are acceptable. All queries should be sent to bookdenblog(at)gmail(dot)com.

What I need from you: At a bare minimum please include the title, the author, a description, and the book cover (a link to the book online where I can see the book cover is sufficient). Please be aware I read all requests that are submitted to me. Due to the sheer volume of emails, I am no longer able to respond to each individual request. If you do not receive a response, I have read your email but am unable to accept your request. I am the sole reviewer of Book Den, and I am only able to accept a very small number of review copies.


I am currently open to guest post queries. If you have a specific topic in mind, please feel free to contact me. Guest posts should be geared toward an audience of readers (not writers). I am happy to tie a giveaway of your book to your guest post. I am currently seeking contributions to my Horror Spotlight feature.


I am happy to consider publishing a guest post and/or hosting a giveaway as part of a blog tour. I will only post original guest posts that have not appeared on other blogs. I am open to accepting a review copy, but I am unable to promise a review during the tour. Often I will post a review of the book during the same week I am scheduled to host a tour stop, but as a policy, I do not schedule reviews.


I do not participate in cover reveals.


It is very unlikely I will accept requests for interviews at this time. Exceptions will be made if I'm very familiar with the author's works. Special consideration will be given to authors looking to take part in my Horror Spotlight feature.


I am happy to host giveaways in the genres listed above.


* All review copies are gifts and are never to be considered as income.

Thank you sincerely for taking the time to read through my policies.
