Editorial Submissions


Send galleys/manuscripts/ARCs to the appropriate reviewer four months prior to your book’s publication date, to be considered for review. E-mail Giselle Hirtenfeld/Goldfeder (Giselle@RTBookReviews.com) with the author name, title, publisher, publication date and sub-genre of your book to find out where to send it for review.

If your book is already published, it’s too late for it to be considered for review in the magazine, however, you might want to consider advertising the book instead in order to bring it to the attention of our readers. If you would like to advertise, please email Giselle@RTBookReviews.com for our author discounted rates.

If your book is very recently published, and you would like to have it considered for one of our few web exclusive review spots, please contact Elisa Verna (webmaster@RTBookReviews.com), our web editor, with your query.


RT BOOK REVIEWS accepts your articles for magazine publication when space permits. Space is open to all authors. To that end, authors should be sure to submit their editorial materials by the correct due dates. Please do NOT send complete articles unsolicited. Query us first.


If you are interested in contributing to one of our columns, please contact Mala Bhattacharjee at Mala@RTBookReviews.com or (718) 237-1097 ext. 29.


Note: Editorial space is NOT guaranteed. It is given at our editors' discretion. Because space is limited, please contact us in advance. Also, we want to explore a variety of topics. If your idea has already been done, advance contact provides the opportunity to identify another angle.

Some of the columns available for submission are:

Behind the Scenes: (750-800 words)
Anecdote, essay. This column allows authors to captivate readers' imaginations using the backdrop of their novel, the story behind the story. Consider a real-life event that inspired your novel, firsthand research experience or a social issue that spurred your imagination. 

Feature: (800-1100 words)
Authors can brainstorm feature-length articles. All query letters are welcome.

Pros on Prose / Writer Tips: (650-750 words)
A how-to column that instructs intermediate and new writers. Pitches should include any specific expertise, as well as general publishing history. Previous Pros on Prose columns include "What's My Line?": a quiz to determine which Harlequin category is right for you, "Writing the Blockbuster" and "Understanding the Power of Dialogue."
