Review Requests

Book review

The Book Smuggler’s Den adores reading, and as such, we are always extremely happy and grateful to publish our honest book review of literature that we have either requested or personally accepted.

The Book Smuggler’s Den welcomes all contact from authors/publishers with regards to honest reviews to their books or involvement in upcoming projects. We will only give our honest, true opinion of the book that we are reviewing and note that we are under no obligation to give a false positive review. The Book Smuggler’s Den will try its very best to complete a review within two months or the date of publication, but due to work commitments, we cannot guarantee reviews will be completed within a certain time frame. Likewise, we withhold the right to not review a book in certain circumstances, such as if we really do not enjoy the book.

The Book Smuggler’s Den is happy to read and review your title! All we ask is that you be sure it goes along with the following.
