Reviewers

Want to publish a review of an upcoming work by an Asian author? We’d love to see it! Please use the form on the Contact page to get in touch.

Guidelines:

  • You must be an Asian reviewer. We’d prefer an ownvoices review if possible (for instance, a Chinese-American reviewer for a book by a Chinese-American author) but we’re pretty flexible.
  • Reviews should be between 500-700 words.
  • We can’t pay for reviews. We operate this blog purely as a hobby, and it’s not in any way monetized. Hopefully one day we’ll get to the point where we can solicit paid reviews, but for now this blog runs on volunteer work.
  • When the story allows, we’d like to see reviews that include some discussion of the relevant cultural, historical, or identity-based issues in the text.

Authors/Publishers

We are happy to accept ARCs for review, though due to time constraints we can’t promise to read everything we’re sent. If you think we might be interested in a book by an Asian author, please shoot an email to kuangwrites [at] gmail.com!

Guidelines:

  • We enjoy SFF (both Adult and YA) and literary fiction the most, and that’s what we’re most likely to read. We also like contemporary and historical fiction.
  • If the author is comfortable, we’d appreciate some information about their heritage and background–this is just so we can do our best to find an #ownvoices reviewer.
  • Please try to get in touch at least two months before release date so we can contribute to launch day social media!
  • We’re happy to accommodate your publicity schedules. Just let us know which day you would like posts to go up.
  • If we end up not liking a book, we just won’t review it. We think reviewing is ultimately pretty subjective, and we don’t want to create bad buzz around a book that someone else might love.
  • Please don’t submit books by white authors.
  • That’s it!
