Review Policy

Here at Indipenned we laugh in the face of rules.  It’s a very hearty laugh. Think Tom Jones in Delilah. However in the interests of saving everyone's precious time our review policy follows.

  • All books must be either self-published by the author or published by independent publishing companies. We do not accept books published by major publishing companies or their subsidiaries. We do accept review requests from authors, publishers, agents and blog tour organisers. We are happy to receive requests to be included in blog tours.

  • We welcome review requests from book written by independent authors across all genres. However, we do reserve the right to refuse request from books that appear libelous, illegal or a bit dull.

  • Other than in exceptional circumstances, we only review books that are listed on this website.  If you haven't already done so you can register here to list your book.  Please note it's a two stage process for authors, publishers, agents etc, or as we like to call them "creators". Watch out for the link at the end of the first stage.

  • In future we plan to introduce an online library that will allow selected book reviewers and our patrons to request ebooks to be mailed directly to their Kindle account. Requests not to be included in or removed from this library must be submitted in writing using the website contact form.

  • Requests for book reviews should be submitted using our contact form. Book review requests should contain a brief synopsis of the book. Also include any aspirational timelines you have for the completion of the review.

  • Once we have confirmed we are able to undertake a review the ebook must be submitted in .mobi format to the email address supplied in our response.

  • Submitting a book for review does not guarantee a review. 

  • Please contact us for clarification if any aspect of our review policy or the reviews we do is unclear.

  • We write book reviews that are honest and unbiased and post them on other platforms such as Amazon.

  • This review policy is subject to change without notice.

  • Our decision is final and very speak to the hand in nature.

We look forward to hearing from you, you indie lovely.
