Free Download: Publisher Approved Book Review Template

In case you haven't heard, this month I'll be on the "Book Reviews & Bloggers Q&A" panel at Indiepalooza! I've worked with small publishers local to Texas for several years now and, not surprisingly, writing book reviews are often part of the job. Sometimes I reviewed books my clients were publishing, sometimes my clients connected me to other publishing companies in need of book reviews. Like manuscripts, there's a general template publishers prefer for book reviews. The overall structure varies from publisher to publisher, but I've constructed a template that tailors to publisher guidelines I've regularly encountered. So the next time you're reviewing a book for a publishing company or posting to your blog, you'll be writing reviews like a professional.

Don't forget that to save the date! Indiepalooza lasts from Friday October 8th 2021 at 7:00pm - Sunday, October 10th, 2021, ending at 12:00pm. It's not too late to purchase your tickets at:! If you want to catch me at the "Book Reviews & Bloggers Q&A" panel, purchase your tickets and tune in Saturday, October 9th, 2021 at 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm (CST). I look forward to seeing you there!

Happy Writing!
