Book Review Policy

Indian Moms Connect (“IMC” or “We”) is currently open to receiving review copies of books from publishers as well as self published authors. We review a wide genre of books, and have reviewers in India, USA and Australia.

Please contact us at indianmomsconnect@gmail.com  to discuss your book. One of our team members will respond to your email request within 72 hours.  Please note that we reserve the right to not read books received for review, if we feel that it is not suitable for our audience.

We accept books in hard copies and in ebook formats. The author/publisher can decide the format of the book.

We will take at least two weeks to review the book from the date of receipt of the book. The review duration will differ depending on the size of the book sent to us for review, and our internal pipeline of book reviews.

We request the author and/or publisher to run contests, give away their books on our site in exchange for an honest review. The number of books to be given away can be decided by the author. Books can be given away as hard copies or ebook formats either as Amazon vouchers or in PDF format. It is the responsibility of the author to mail hard copies and/or ebook formats to the winners. We will contact the winners, and get postal or mailing or shipping addresses and send them to the author and/or publisher so they can send the book(s) to the winners. Please review our giveaway policy here (link to giveaway policy)

Our review process includes receiving the book, reviewing the book, writing & publishing a review on the IMC site, newsletter(s) and social media pages along with a written or audio interview as well as a book giveaway widget on our homepage. The written interview will be published on the IMC site and the site link will be published on our social media pages and newsletter(s). The audio interview will be hosted on our soundcloud channel and a link to the audio interview will be published on the IMC site, social media pages and newsletter(s).

Our reviews are honest and we try our best to be constructive in our criticism. It is important to note that we will not share our reviews with authors and/or publishers before publication on the IMC site and social media pages. The published review will include the book cover image, information on publisher, photos from some pages of the book as well as any other pertinent information. We will also offer affiliate links to Flipkart and Amazon for purchase. Where possible we provide links of the books to the publisher or distributor store on IMC Marketplace.

All our reviews are posted in Amazon, Goodreads, author and/or publisher site(s). We request the author to cross post the reviews, interviews, and giveaways on their site(s) and social media pages.
