Foreword Review

Foreword’s pre-publication reviews allow publishers to synchronize their books’ advance publicity campaigns with the release of reviews—to create as much buzz as possible for their new titles. To be considered for a review in the pages of Foreword Reviews, the title in question must be received in the Foreword offices at least three months prior to the book’s firm publication date. Foreword’s editor-in-chief will then carefully analyze whether the project meets our editorial requirements.

We receive hundreds of worthy titles every month. Due to space limitations, only 125 titles per quarterly issue receive a review in the magazine.
