Hi Authors! For my second post, here is a list of 14 book review blogs (some geared towards YA and fantasy), which collectively have over 50,000 followers! I researched about 500 book blogs and these were the ones with the most followers and current activity. Try to contact these sites first to review your new or upcoming release for some widespread exposure!
WHAT TO HAVE READY TO SEND TO THE REVIEWER:
In an email make a polite request asking that their site review your book. Try to personalize the message to each site. Make sure to mark your subject line with 'Review Request', your name, and book title.
Include or attach:
Synopsis of your book
The following may also be helpful for the reviewer:
Cover art in jpg format
Author photo in jpg format and author bio
Link to book website
Links to author's website and/or blog
Link to video trailer if available
If they are interested, they will respond. If you get a good review, ask them to post it on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Also ask if you can use an excerpt of their review on your site.
Any other helpful tips out there???
Good Luck! Jan
