Authors, publishers and publicists ~ we would LOVE to hear your book pitches!
Email Kate Olson at kidlitexchange at gmail dot com to tell us about your book if you would like us to consider it for review in our network – we are excited to hear from you!
UPDATE: At this time, we are only accepting books PRE-RELEASE or within one month of publication date.
We are looking for high quality, library-worthy titles – please understand that if your book isn’t quite at this level, we may decline. The vast majority of our reviewers are librarians and teachers, and the titles we review need to be at the level that would qualify for them for purchase at school and public libraries. This includes writing, illustrations, and general appeal.
Please note that we are only accepting PHYSICAL (paperback or hardcover) galleys for standard review at this time. We do a lot of our reviewing on Instagram, and physical books do so much better with engagement and community interest. This is better for authors! However, if you have a NetGalley widget to share with us, some of our reviewers may be interested. Pitch us.
In addition, all books must have an ISBN and be available for review on Goodreads – this is easy for authors to set up if you contact the Goodreads team!
#kidlitexchange has a policy of “Integrity, not promotion” and only offers to read books sent to us and provide honest and constructive reviews. However, some reviewers do not believe in publishing negative reviews, so will only publish reviews if they have positive things to say. Submitting your book to our network does not absolutely guarantee anything in return, but we do take all books into serious consideration and all books are offered up to reviewers. Thanks so much for working with us!
