I need some advice!

Okay, I’m really wanting to look in to publishers sending me books to review as I get more serious in to this reviewing and I was just wondering if anyone had any advice on how to go about this. I don’t really know much about it so please excuse me if I ask any questions.

I’m planning two more reviews soon and I’ll post them up as soon as I can. I’m also planning to write more posts about writing techniques and styles.

I’m hoping that I’ll get some responses *fingers crossed*

    If you send publishers e-mails requesting books, then that is a great way of getting books for review. In your e-mail put an address to your blog, your numbers of followers, what you like to read etc and the name of the book you want. It often helps to put your postal address with it to, as publishers often don’t have time to reply and ask for it. If you go with the Bloomsbury publicity woman, she is really nice! 🙂 Good luck, Lucy!!
    And thank you so much for stopping by my blog, I’m now following yours in return 😀 xx

    If you e-mail a publisher (usually the e-mail for the YA/teenage publicity department) they are always really nice! 🙂 Quercus, Bloomsbury, Mira Ink and Egmont are all especially lovely publishers. 🙂 Good luck!! 🙂 I absolutely LOVE your blog!! And thank you so much for following and commenting on mine, I’m a new follower on yours! 🙂
    Happy reading and blogging!!,

    I would recommend emailing with all your information like Zoe said in comments above. Also, just stick with it. Publishers like a blog that is consistent in posting. You can also try chatting up publishers on Twitter 🙂 Good luck!
