Contact Us

We accept books and ARCs from editors and agents.  Sending us a book, however, does not guarantee that we will read it, much less write a review of it.  If we do write a review it will be an honest assessment of the book as we see it.  If we don’t like it, we will say so.  It is best, therefore, to consider the kinds of books we enjoy reading and reviewing before sending us your material.

We read an idiosyncratic assortment of books including literary fiction, classics, memoirs, an occasional graphic novel, and nonfiction of all kinds.  We do not review romances, mysteries, thrillers, science fiction, e-books, chick-lit, erotica, short stories, or poetry.

If we have reviewed your book and loved it, please feel free to contact us about an author guest post or author interview.

All information on The Book Shark belongs to the sole owners.  Reviews on The Book Shark may not be reproduced in any form without written permission from the author except for brief quotations that do not violate fair-use provisions of copyright law.  Publishers who quote from reviews in ads or book jackets should credit: Cindy Pinto, The Book Shark, or Donna Long, The Book Shark,  For permission to reprint longer passages or full reviews, email us here:
