I am happy to announce that as of now I am open to review requests for books to be reviewed in 2015!!!

Now through December 31st, feel free to fill out the submission form if you are interested in being reviewed right here on Opinions of a Wolf at some point during 2015.

Here’s how it’s going to work:

  1. You lovely authors and publishers read my review policies to determine if your book is a good match for me.
  2. If you think your book is a good match for me, you fill out the submission form.
  3. Between January 1st and 7th, I go over the submissions and determine which ones I will accept.  I will accept no more than 6 to prevent overloading myself.
  4. Between January 8th and 10th, I send out acceptance emails to all the accepted authors/publishers.
  5. By January 17th, accepted authors/publishers reply to this email either with a copy of the ebook or confirmation that they have sent out the print book to me.  If I do not hear back from accepted authors/publishers by January 17th, the opportunity will be passed on to another author/publisher.
  6. On January 24th, I will write a post right here announcing the books I have accepted for review.  This means that if you are accepted for review, you have the potential for three instances of publicity: 1) the announcement 2) the review 3) a giveaway (if you request one AND your book receives 3 stars or more in the review).  You may view 2014’s announcement post here.

I would like to note that I strongly encourage women writers and GLBTQA writers to submit to me, particularly in genres that do not normally publish works by these authors.  I was quite disappointed last year to get very few women or GLBTQA authors submitting.  Please help me get the word out that I am actively seeking works by these authors.

If you are interested in the breakdown of submissions I received last year and what was ultimately accepted, check out my 2014 accepted review copies post.

Thank you for your interest in submitting your books to Opinions of a Wolf!  I’m looking forward to reading through all of the submissions, and I can’t wait to see what review copies I’ll be reading in 2015!

Hooray!!

I am happy to announce that as of now I am open to review requests for books to be reviewed in 2014!!!

Now through December 31st, feel free to email in your review requests if you are interested in being reviewed right here on Opinions of a Wolf at some point during 2014.

Here’s how it’s going to work:

  1. You lovely authors and publishers submit your requests between now and December 31st, following the guidelines and tips listed on my Review Policies/Contact page.  Indie authors/publishers are strongly encouraged to submit!
  2. I select the ones I will read and review in 2014.  I will select no more than 12 so as not to overload myself.
  3. Between January 1st and January 10th, I will send out email notifications to those who have been accepted.  I will not email those who have not been accepted.  If you have not heard back from me by January 10th, then I’m sorry but you were not selected.
  4. Accepted authors/publishers will email me back and let me know if they are interested in a giveaway in conjunction with the review.
  5. Before January 10th, I will write a post right here announcing the books I have accepted for review.  This means that if you are accepted for review, you have the potential for three instances of publicity: 1) the announcement 2) the review 3) a giveaway (at your discretion).

If you are interested in being one of the (possibly 12) ARC/review copy books read and reviewed here on Opinions of a Wolf in 2014, please click through to my Review Policies/Contact page for more information on review policies (not to mention my submissions email), and follow the instructions there carefully when submitting.

I’m looking forward to reading through all of the submissions! I can’t wait to see what review copies I’ll be reading in 2014. 😀
