If your e-book is accepted for review, E-book reviews will be in the next available print magazine issue. We cannot guarantee that an e-book review will be placed in the print magazine by the release date. Review space is limited.
It depends on how you have your audio book, whether it be as a disk, flash drive, or gift code. We have an audio reviewer waiting for you.

Print bound ARCs:
To expedite sending the ARD to the correct reviewer, please identify the genre on the outside envelope so we know which reviewer to send your book to. We find it very important to send ARCs to readers who enjoy your genre. It wouldn't do any of us or you any good to send a book to a reviewer who doesn't like to read the genre you have written your book in. Send your ARCs asap or at least three months prior to your release date to:
Affaire de Coeur
3976 Oak Hill Road
Oakland, CA 94605
We will review books after publication, depending on when the book was released. You may request a review with an ad or accepted article if there is space available in the magazine. This does not guarantee a review, not does it guarantee high rated review. We strive to continue to give our readers honest book reviews.
