Global Bookworms is not a review service, in that we do not guarantee a good review or critique, but honest opinions of the book. Our five-point criteria ensures that your book will not receive low marks simply because it isn't a reviewer's "cup of tea." We never offer a short "that was a good book" opinion, rather a well-thought-out opinion based on a five-point criteria.
Well-developed characters that mesh and are believable;
Strong plot with good flow and no gaps;
Believable dialogue that is not contrived;
Writing mechanics: punctuation, spelling, grammar;
Emotional impact and reader's opinion.
Each point of the criteria is worth 1-star only, totaling up to a 5-star review!
When an author submits their book they will receive:
The reader's time to read the book to provide that well-written review;
Exposure for your book on our blog and social media for life, as well as another area your book is searchable online;
Publicity for your book on other sites of your choosing, such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. and possible increase in review rankings;
Word-of-mouth for your book for other potential readers to find and create potential book sales;
Marketable review material to use on your own website and possible increase to your site's traffic.
Lastly, books receiving the highest marks will be featured on our Home page for 2 months and periodically rotated back.
If you have more than one book you wish our readers to read, you must submit each separately.
Books we accept:
Children's fiction, young adult and adult fiction (i.e. mystery, sci-fi/fantasy, historical, romance, Christian, suspense/thriller, etc.) and some nonfiction books (i.e. Christian, true crime, self help, autobiographies (e.g. LGBTQ))
Books we do not accept:
Poetry, erotica, books with gender neutral characters, books that promote hatred, LGBTQ fiction and some nonfiction books (i.e. political)
Our lists are not all encompassing, so if uncertain what we accept, email us prior to submitting your book.
Submission of any books and promotional materials are non-returnable and loss or damage of any books and materials provided are subject to the author's or publisher's own risk. Most of the books sent to us will be donated to local libraries, charities or literacy programs, such as Better World Books, after we have reviewed them.
We cannot guarantee a time-frame for publication of the review or if your book will be selected for review, due to the significant number of submissions received. Lastly, due to the high volume of submissions received we cannot reply to inquiries regarding review status.
If we have reviewed your book, we will send a copy of our review to your email that you provided in the book submission form below to use as you wish.
Print books can be mailed to the address on the following page, when the form below is submitted.
