We want to give authors who review on this site the opportunity to place their books in the hands of qualified reviewers. So we invite authors to offer free copies of their own literary fiction books for review. We encourage authors to offer just published books as well as books that were published a while ago and haven’t gotten the attention they deserve.
To offer your book for review, please write to info (at) dactyl (dot) org. Only active Dactyl Reviewers are able to offer their books for review. Provide: your name, book title, publisher, publication year, number of pages, format options (paperback, hardcover, used book, e-book), and a link to more information about the book. Authors must be willing to ship books to qualified reviewers.
To request a review copy, please write to info (at) dactyl (dot) org. To qualify for a free book, you must be a literary fiction writer and have published a book-length work of literary fiction. If you do not care for the work, you are not obligated to review it.
At Dactyl Review we want to help build relationships between like-minded authors and reviewers. We encourage writers to ask one of the author-reviewers on this site or a writer-friend to do a review exchange. You review his/hers; he/she reviews yours. If you decide to try a review-exchange, choose a writer to work with whose work you admire. We believe that the review-exchange method can produce well-written and honest reviews, since most literary fiction writers care too much about their own sense of aesthetics to ever consider praising a work that they dislike. Follow these guidelines for reviewing to ensure that your review is informative and reliable.
