Getting a Guaranteed Book Reviewed from
If your book is more than 90 days past publication date, or you really want to get it reviewed and don’t want to just hope it’ll get picked up through the general review system, you can go through the Sponsored Review program. While there is some controversy about paying for a review, Kids’ BookBuzz (KBB) is a respected publication like Kirkus or Foreword Reviews and doesn’t provide vanity reviews for payment. You can expect the same level of professionalism from our standard reviews. And we don’t call out sponsored reviews any different than the other reviews.
Here is some general information on the various Sponsored Reviews we offer:
Standard Reviews – Take 8-10 weeks for turnaround from the time we receive your book – Start at $199
Expedited Reviews – Take 3-5 weeks for turnaround from the time we receive your book – Start at $349
Get more than one review for the same book – You’ll get a discount on the normal cost of two, three, or four reviews.
Add an interview – Podcast interviews for are $300 by themselves and adding them to an interview as a package drops the price of both. A Standard Sponsored Review and interview together cost $450, saving $50 from the cost separately.
And if you really like your review, you can have it posted on one of our other brand’s (Manhattan, San Francisco, or Seattle) website for $99.
