#Authors, Indulge with Us. Request a #Review.

It's a CRAZY BOOK WORLD out there. So many books, so little time and we know we can't possibly read all the books that are submitted to us but we sure try hard! With seven reviewers -all with different tastes- we accept a wide variety of ARCs, self-published books, author submissions and submissions from publishers and agents.

Here's some guidelines to help YOU and US...

We are a romance review site. We review contemporary romance, military or romantic suspense, fantasy or paranormal romance, contemporary western, historical romance, new adult, young adult, urban fantasy, and GLBT. Erotic content is accepted. We welcome bdsm and spanking themes. Some forced/ non-consensual intercourse is okay but must be shared up front since only a few of us will read this.

To put it simply, if it has a strong romantic component, we likely have a reviewer who will read it.


For best results, click here for Review Request Guidelines. NOTE that following these will expedite your request. While we love your creativity in books, but not in request emails.

It may take up to six weeks to be contacted. All review requests are sent to our reviewers. Should a reviewer select your book, they will contact you directly to get a copy of the book, set a date for the post and to determine how you would like to get involved. We receive more than double the review requests than we can actually accept so be aware that we cannot possibly contact everyone. You will be contacted only if your book is selected. We know this seems impersonal but we just can't keep up.

You might be selected as a FEATURE AUTHOR. Each month, we choose one book/ series as our Book Club Selection. There's so much more exposure, including a week of reviews and posts, for this book/ series.

THE REVIEW IS JUST THE FIRST STEP. PROMOTION IS KEY. Once your review is posted, we promote it through facebook, twitter and google+. We make every attempt to also post it to Goodreads within one week of the post but this cannot be guaranteed. We do not always post to Amazon since readers can access Goodreads reviews from there now.

You should promote too. Feel free to quote our reviews on your blogs, websites and books with credit given to Guilty Indulgence Review Site. Add one of the badges to your social media with a link back to our review. Use all the available online outlets to promote your book. If we posted a review, it means we liked your book - we only post reviews on books we like, love or find indulgent. Don't be shy... promote!

If your review earns the ULTIMATE INDULGENCE BOOK AWARD, our top award, be sure to use either of the banners to brag a bit.
