Submitting a Book for Review:
  • Please email with "Book Review Request" in the subject line.
  • Include your name, the book title, a short synopsis and a link to your author page.
  • If a title has not yet been released, please include the release date so the review timing can correspond appropriately.
  • Please note that acceptance of a review copy is not acceptance to review the book.
  • Due to volume of emails, it may take time to receive a response. If it has been over a month, please resend your request as it may have been marked as spam.
If Your Book is Accepted:
  • The review will be an honest response to the novel and therefore is not guaranteed to be positive.
  • Unlike other book reviewers, any book accepted WILL be reviewed on The Dying Book Affair. No books are left unfinished or submitted to other book bloggers.
  • Any book requested by The Dying Book Affair is given highest priority, followed by books submitted prior to the release date. All other submissions will be reviewed based upon preference.
Formats Accepted:
  • Any hardcover or print copy
  • Galley copies
  • We no longer accept ebooks, PDFs, or other online files.

The Dying Book Affair is always happy to feature author interviews, host book tour stops and guest posts, as well as other literary content if it is a good fit. Please email
