Are you a Self-Published Author or Seeking a Literary Agent?

Get a professional, unbiased editorial book review from the prestigious NY Literary Magazine to add credibility to your book.

The NY Literary Magazine offers its Editorial Book Review service for self-published, published, and unpublished authors.

Having an editorial review from our magazine may help you gain the attention of an agent or publisher, impress potential buyers of your book, and help increase your book’s sales.

Our review can be used in your book, as well as for your website, blog, social media, advertising and marketing, in a Press Release about your book, for your Goodreads page, Amazon book page and any other place where you sell or promote your book or eBook.

What Books Do We Review?

We review everything from poetry collections, short stories, children’s books, picture books, novels, and books in all genres apart from self-help, cooking, instructional how-to books, religious and spiritual studies, horror stories, and academic books. We do not accept books with religious or political hate, and books containing sex with children.

We accept both published books, self-published books, and unpublished manuscripts in the English language from authors of any nationality and age.
Audiobooks and foreign language books are currently not accepted.

We strongly recommend authors who have published several books in a series to first order a review for their initial book in the series.

About Our Book Review

One of our experienced, professional Editors will provide you with an honest, unbiased review of your book.

The assigned Editor will analyze your story, including the overall story and plot, character depth, dialog, world-building, and the feel of your unique writing style.

You may use the entire editorial book review or just an excerpt from it.

While we seek to highlight the best qualities in your book, we cannot guarantee that the review will be positive.
