What you need to know about Romance Rehab before you ask for a review
We truly love to read and review books, and we’d be honored to check out your work. It’s a huge compliment that you’d even consider sharing with us. And we’re especially supportive of indie authors and self-published authors. But before you ask us for a review, there are a few things you should know about us:
What to submit
This is an easy one. Only submit romance. No poetry, no speculative fiction, no nonfiction, no sci-fi. We’re open to all sub-categories within the romance genre, but we have a particular weakness for:
We’re EXTREMELY picky about the books we choose to read and review in historical romance, romantic suspense and romantic erotica. And if you want us to review urban fantasy, it better have a STRONG romantic element present. If it doesn’t, you’ll suffer our wrath.
How to submit
Email us a nice, interesting, personable, friendly and/or funny query letter that includes your name (and/or pen name), as well as the book’s genre, page count, release date, and blurb. Attach a mobi or PDF to the email.
5 = Love it! No rehab needed. This book CRUSHES the romance stigma.
4 = Pretty darn good. This book might not CRUSH the romance stigma, but it strongly discourages it.
3 = Meh. We’ve read worse. It’s not really doing much for the romance genre as a whole. (It’s not hurting anything either, though. Probably still worth a read.)
2 = It’s got some issues. It’s like the literary version of Lindsay Lohan. With a lengthy stay in rehab, it might be able to get clean and stage a comeback.
1 = Ugh. This is the Charlie Sheen of books. No amount of rehab can save it.
DNF = Did Not Finish. Save yourselves; it’s too late for us.
