**Update 30 Jan 2016: we are not accepting book reviews at the moment**
Pawesome Cats offers a free promotional package for authors, including a short book review, author interview and giveaway.
Our editorial space for book reviews is limited, so we focus on books about cats or that feature cats predominantly within the story. Occasionally, we feature books about dogs.
We are happy to review fiction and non-fiction books about cats. We also accept cat books aimed at children, including picture books. We prefer printed books, and generally don’t accept e-books.
To help us determine if your book is a good match with our readers please email us with:
- a synopsis of the story
- any website links to your book (or previously published books) including reviews
- your author bio
- name of publisher and date of publication.
What next? If we accept your book for review we’ll send you our postal address. We are located in Australia, so please allow 7-10 days for your book to reach us from the United States or Europe.
After we have received your book we’ll email you a short series of questions designed to help our readers get to know you and your book better.
We’ll also ask you to send us a few images e.g. the book cover, author photo, the cat or cats that inspired the book. These need to be at least 1000 pixels wide and jpg or png format.
Book giveaways boost interest in an author’s book and often result in increased sales. All giveaways are promoted to our social media followers on Facebook and Twitter.
Giveaways will be run as a game of skill. Readers will be asked:
“In 25 words or less, tell us why you’d like to win a copy of . . .”
Our preference is to offer the giveaway to readers worldwide, but you can select a specific region (e.g. US readers only) if you prefer.
A the end of giveaway promotion (usually 7 days) we will provide you with the winner’s name and postal address so that you can send the book to them directly.
