Submit a Book for Review

The Glass House Book Club

The Glass House Book Club

We are so very proud to be able to act as a voice for the many authors out there who want to reach a wider audience. Here at The Glass House, we don’t just ‘review’ books, we champion them. If we publish a review of your book on our site, we put the full weight of our site behind your words. We are acutely aware of how nerve-wracking it can be to have your ‘baby’ out in the world, and so we want to help you make that transition as painless as possible.

However, at The Glass House, we know that in order to reach a wide audience, our readers want to know more about you than just whether we like the book or not. Leaving a 5-star review is no good if we don’t fully explain why. Our reviews are in-depth and honest. We will never lie. Our ratings are just as genuine as all of our articles on our magazine.

We encourage authors to get in touch and let us know when you are releasing a book and we will do our best to fit you into our Book Club schedule.

We also encourage authors to get in touch if they would like to take part in the many other areas of our Book Club. We don’t just review books, we offer readers the chance to truly engage with authors and find out what makes them tick. We offer Q&A opportunities in our Quick Fire Questions section and also have a dedicated Feature Articles section where we invite authors to write articles about what really makes them tick. Why did you write about that chosen topic, or even explain to us what a day in the life of an author is really like? If you have a booky related article in mind, share it with us and we will share it with our wide book-loving audience. After all, people by people, not products. Show your readers who you really are and let them fall in love with you through our Book Club – the book sales will surely follow.

So – if you have a book you would like to submit to us for review, or you would just like to talk to one of our team about how we can work together, get in touch using the form below.

If you have a book-related article you would like to submit to us, please do so using the Submissions Page.

Review Policy:
All our book reviews are 100% honest and genuine. They are never bought and paid for.
We endeavour to read and review books in all genres (both fiction and non-fiction), drop us a message and we will always do our best to accommodate.

Children’s Books:
We love to read and review children’s books. We will always make sure one of our ‘Glass House Kids’ reads and reviews the book from a child’s perspective but ensure all reviews are looked over by our editorial team before publication. After all, if you want to know if kids will like your book, who best to ask than the children themselves. Please always make sure you let us know what age range your children’s book falls under.

Physical Books / E-books:
Obviously, being book lovers, there is nothing we love more than receiving a copy of the physical book to review. This allows us the chance to take some truly beautiful and unique images of your book for our site. However, if your book is only being published in e-book form, we are more than happy to receive a digital version. Please be aware that due to postage, if you are sending a physical copy, try to send as soon as possible.

Rating System:
5 – Absolute Must read / Highly Recommend 
4 – A Great Read, we would recommend to a friend
3 – A Good Book 
2 – An OK Read but we wouldn’t read it again
1 – Not to our taste

Time Restrictions:
Obviously, reading and reviewing a full-length novel take time. If you are hoping to have a review done by a specific date, please make sure you let us know and try to give us as much time as possible. We can not always guarantee a review date, but we will always try to work with authors to make sure our reviews sit within a certain time frame. Be patient with us and we will do our best to help.

Blog Tours:
We are of course always happy to take part in Blog Tours, either organising them or participating in them. We are happy to contribute reviews or content depending on the time frame.

Quotes and Press:
We are always happy to provide quotes for book tours, book covers and press releases – however, please get in touch and ask permission first before taking any quotes directly from our reviews. We love to help you shout about your work and it’s only polite to let us know when you do the same.
