Why Kirkus?

Our marketing campaigns include promotion in Kirkus Reviews magazine, on Kirkus. Marketing services designed to get books discovered by consumers and industry influencers. This has been the best investment we have made.

Natasha Barclay has not been seen in decades. But why has no one been looking for her? A scalpel-sharp, un-put-down-able psychological thriller in which a wronged woman exacts revenge on her abusively controlling, serial philandering ex. A psychopath preys on lonely women and lures them into his trap using a dating website.

But DS Imogen Grey is back and on the case as three separate stories unravel and we see the light in a dark dark crime novel. An insightful and helpful book with a compelling story that instils the importance of positivity in parenting and everyday life.

Revenge is a dish best served cold. When all else fails, he takes things into his own hands. And who can blame him? A captivating read, its bittersweet ending brought tears to my eyes, touched me deeply and left me thinking. A deeply reflective and moving debut about a Pakistani immigrant family in America trying to find out what happened to their rebellious son.

Does Kirkus Indie review foreign-language books? We review Spanish-language books, but we do not offer reviews of books in other languages at this time.

Please be sure to submit a polished, final version of your book including illustrations, if applicable.

Our reviewers will treat any title they receive as a finished work. I have a series of books. Should I start by having the first book in the series reviewed, even if it is not my most recent title?

We strongly recommend that authors submit the first title in a given series so that our Indie reviewers can have the full context for the story or subject matter. I want to place an order for a second review. Can I request to have the same reviewer read my second book? If you were pleased with your first review, you may request to have the same reviewer read your next book. My review refers to a previous title of mine and not the work in question.

We include this information to give readers additional context. Will you accept payment by check or money order? This site is secure for credit card payments.
