Writers Only

WRITERS ONLY Permitted Beyond This Point

No matter if you’re unpublished or published, famous or little-known, IBR wants to hang out with cool writers.

Grab a coffee, a tea, your favorite quill or typewriter, and let’s see what we can do together.

Get Your Book Reviewed:

Independent Book Review publishes between 20-30 book reviews per month, a mix of both free reviews and editorial book reviews. For more information about how to send us your book, please click the button below.


Group Beta Reading:

The IBR Group Beta Reading service provides authors with three to five personalized beta letters to help you recognize the strengths and weaknesses in your manuscript. In five weeks, you’ll receive 650+ words of feedback from each beta reader covering topics like characterization, plot, important scenes, and more.


Writing & Publishing Resources:

In addition to publishing content for readers, we also write blog posts and book reviews that are specifically for published and unpublished authors. If you’re in the mood to learn about craft, book marketing, or helpful writer resources, head on over to the link below.

Write for Us:

We invite reviewers, interviewers, and writers to pitch their contributions to our site. Do you have some insider publishing information you want to share? We want to hear it! Do you want to review that book you’ve been hearing about?

On Writing Facebook Group:

Come engage with a growing community about writing, publishing, and all sorts of other writerly topics! “On Writing” will be a great way to make new writer friends, chat about your WIP, and share your successes.
