Submit your manuscript or published book to be reviewed by our staff!


As a self-published or unpublished author, you may ask where you can find a professional to review your novel. It can be tough to attract interest in your book or manuscript. One good way to get noticed is by having a positive professional review of your book or manuscript.

For the first time, Authorlink® is opening its professional reviews to indie authors. You can purchase a professional review for $199–less than other major review websites. Use the assessment to promote your work to editors, agents, and influencers. Books of up to 300 pages or manuscripts of up to 80,000 words are accepted for a fee-based review. For larger work, email us for an estimate.

Authorlink® has reviewed books from every major publisher for more than 20 years.  See our more than 6,500 book reviews and author interviews. You will be getting the same professional attention as bestselling authors with our assessments.

We cannot guarantee a positive review, but you can choose to publish the comments in a special section on our site at no charge, and link the review to your website, use it in your promotional materials, or keep our comments strictly private. You can also elect to have your review listed in a special indie section on our site.

What you get:

  • Professional written 200-300-word review of content (up to 300 pages or 80,000 words)
  • An optional rating between 1 and 5 stars to display
  • Fast, trustworthy service
  • Optional free listing in our indy book reviews section
