Review Policy

Hello! Thank you for your interest to share your work with us.

Below are some things to consider before sending us a request:

  • We give special attention to Philippine and Asian literature.
  • If you are an author based in the Philippines, we prefer print copies.
  • If you are an author based outside the Philippines, you are free to send us a print copy. However, because of our country‚Äôs mail system, it might take a while (sometimes weeks) before the package gets to us. We would be happy to accept digital copies (.epub, .mobi) instead. Please attach them in your email.
  • We may not be able to reply to all requests.
  • All requests are consolidated in a database for the viewing and selection of our reviewers. However, this does not guarantee that your request will be picked up.
  • If your request is picked up, we will send you an email once the review is published.
  • We do not use ratings for reviews. Instead, we break them down into sections: 1) The story (Summary), 2) What I liked (Pros), 3) What could have been done differently (Room for improvement) and 4) tl;dr (In a nutshell/Overall impact).
  • We make sure we give honest reviews.
  • We include our review policy clause in our reviews. Example: Bookbed received a physical copy of this book from the requesting author in exchange for an honest review.
  • Our reviews are cross-posted on our social media accounts. We highly encourage requesting parties to share them as well.

If you understand and accept all the terms above, email us at hello@bookbed.org with the following:

  • Author
  • Title
  • Blurb
  • Press release (if available)
  • Links to online stores (if available)
  • If sending physical copy, ask for our mailing address.
  • If sending digital copy, attach .epub and .mobi files.
  • Please also indicate if willing to do a giveaway.
