Our team of ReadySteadyBook reviewers is widely experienced and widely published, with a broad range of interests and knowledge. We will review books from any reputable publisher (and the occassional disreputable one too!). If you are a publisher and wish to have any of your books reviewed please send an email to us at We will endeavour to reply to your mail within 48 hours and, if we wish to review your book, we will do so normally within 60 working days of receiving it.

However, publishers and authors should please note the types of books that interest us here at ReadySteadyBook: literary fiction, poetry, history and philosophy. We do not review erotica, crime -- or most other "genre" -- fiction. We are big supporters of small and independent presses, but we do not review self-published books.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those publishers (and their remarkably pleasant, ever-helpful publicity and marketing folk) who continue to support our efforts -- thanks to all of you!
