Writing Book Reviews for Fun and Profit
Writing book reviews can be a great way to break into print.(My first byline was a book review!) Book reviews are found in newspapers, magazines, trade journals, Websites and newsletters.
To find potential markets for your book reviews, grab a copy of Literary Marketplace, a reference volume available at your local library. There are several sections that list newspapers and magazines that publish book reviews. You will find the name of the book review editor for each publication, but before you send a query letter asking if they need any additional book reviewers, visit their Website and make sure the name is still correct.
