You'll have 2 options to choose from when submitting your indie book. We request that you upload your book as a PDF, epub or mobi file. Should you wish to send us a physical copy, please use a PDF of the book cover in your submission, let us know you would like to send a physical copy by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange for an ambassador to review the book and let you know where to send it. Please be aware that posting of physical copies of your book will cause a delay and may have an impact on when we are able to get your feedback returned to you.
After receiving your book, our Editors will allocate your book to one of the team of Ambassadors who will review the book and provide a detailed review which will then be emailed to you within our turnaround time. Turnaround times start from within 4 weeks of submission. You can see the detailed breakdown of each review option and their respective turnaround times in the 'Review Options' section below.
Positive reviews will receive an "Indie Books We Love" Badge for use with their book. They will also feature free of charge on LoveReading.co.uk or LoveReading4Kids.co.uk.
As above, successful indie books feature free on LoveReading and get our recommendation badge but also qualify for heavily discounted further promotional packages. See our other packages below ONLY OPEN TO BOOKS WE LOVE.
