BlueInk Basic Review


A credible book review is critical for any book’s success. It gives you a definite edge over countless other authors waiting to be read. A positive review is the stamp that tells readers, ‘This book is relevant. Pay attention.’

We distribute reviews to the venues that can make a difference in book sales, including:

  • (upon request)
  • Ingram and ProQuest databases (used by 70,000 booksellers and librarians)

We may also choose select reviews for wider distribution, with possible inclusion in:

  • Booklist magazine (highly respected review magazine read by 60,000 librarians)
  • BlueInk recommended lists sent to literary agents, editors, librarians, and booksellers who have expressly requested to see these lists
  • Goodreads, Twitter, Pinterest, and other social media platforms
