Submitting Advance Review Copies + Review Policies

Work with us!

We are absolutely thrilled to work with publishers, publicists, agencies and authors to help promote upcoming books as well as those which have already published. If we do accept your request, we prefer to receive a physical ARC or finished copy of the book requested. In exchange, one of our writers will provide an honest review that will be published on Paperback Paris.

Formats we like:
  • Advanced reader copy (ARC)
  • Digital reading copy (DRC)
  • Completed physical copies
Genres we prefer:

While we like to keep an open mind when considering titles, we are admittedly picky about genre. We have an inclination for works of fiction, science fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, thriller/suspense, nonfiction (memoir/biography), and YA. While we don’t illustrate a large interest in romance, it does not hurt to inquire.

How we write our reviews:

We pride ourselves on giving honest, fastidious reviews and feedback as a courtesy to our readers and the teams who entrust us. In no way are our reviews written on a time-constrictive basis. At most, a review might take at two weeks before it’s published on Paperback Paris. Please do keep in mind that review requests pitched to us will be considered but not guaranteed for approval.

Only in considerable circumstances will a review be suspended for more than our two-week minimum. For example, an ARC may not be expected to release until months later. In this case, we will postpone the review until two weeks prior to its intended publishing date. We notify all contacts when a review has been published via e-mail.

With that being said, here’s our promise to you:
  • One 400-word minimum book review provided with extensive commentary, and unbiased critiques.
  • An informative book blurb or synopsis courtesy of publisher’s request or otherwise (ex. Goodreads, Barnes & Noble etc.)
  • Provided links to the book’s place of purchase, publishing house, author’s website, and any other supplemental outlets per request.
**Once the review is published, we will notify the respective publishing house(s), author(s), and contacts via e-mail.*
