Submission Guidelines

Shelf Awareness is once again accepting print galleys for review consideration, starting with October 2021 publications for adult review copies.


For children's and teen titles, please send an electronic copy of the title to children's/YA editor Siân Gaetano four months in advance of publication:
sian@shelf-awareness.com



We ask that publishers resume sending print review copies to our Seattle address below, in addition to electronic galleys by email: 
galleys@shelf-awareness.com

Mailing address for ARCs:
Shelf Awareness
811 1st Avenue, Suite 315
Seattle, WA 98104


We do accept finished children's board books at the above mailing address (811 1st Ave., Ste 315, Seattle, WA 98104)

To have your book considered for review, please send two copies of a galley* (if you do not have galleys of your book, please send a finished copy marked “in lieu of galley”), along with a pdf or e-galley.

These must be submitted four months in advance of publication, and a finished copy when the book is finished.

The book must be available through national distribution, i.e. Ingram and/or Baker & Taylor. Currently, we do not review ebook-only or print-on-demand titles.

We send galleys out for review consideration, but do not guarantee reviews.
