Get Reviewed

Literary Magic seeks to set the standard in the publishing world. We review both fiction and nonfiction books, short story and poetry collections. We welcome review submissions from new as well as established writers. We review published books but will accept galley copies for pre-publication review. We will also review self-published books, e-books and POD titles, and we are very open to debut authors.

What We Review. Our Preferences:

Fiction: We will review any genre, but prefer Thrillers, Mysteries, Historical, Sci-Fi, Fantasy or Suspense novels.

Literature: Short Story and Poetry Collections

Nonfiction: Nonfiction books should be related to the subject manner we publish, like books about words and linguistics to writing guides, but we will also consider How-To, Humor and the occasional memoir.

Collections of short stories and poetry may be any subject, any style.



Due to the incredible demand for review by Literary Magic, we are only accepting a limited number of books to review. We give priority to books that have not been published yet, just because those authors have limited time. Queries beforehand are a must if you want your book to stand out of the pile. We review books from new writers as well as established authors, and are not very picky in what types of books we review.

The majority of books reviewed by Literary Magic are fictional, either novel or short story\poetry collections. Nonfiction books should be related to the subject manner we publish, like books about words and linguistics to writing guides.

What You Will Get From Our Review:

A Literary Magic review is written to be informative and entertaining. Our reviews analyze a book’s strength and weaknesses. They serve as critiques as well as reviews.

Literary Magic has thousands of visitors and hundreds of dedicated readers who return each issue to read the content we publish. They read reviews to be informed about the books, and if they like what they read, they may even buy the book.

Submitting a Book for Review. How Does it Work?
