Book Reviewer Links #2

Here are some additional links that tested live when last checked in mid-January 2018. You may have to do some fancy footwork to find reviewers appropriate to your book’s theme or genre or find information on how to submit your book for review. If all else fails, send out an e-mail query to the contact listed on-site. Always strive to provide the review sites you contact with whatever they require in order to review your book. Be prepared to wait for from several weeks to several months for the reviews to go live, and, of course, be as courteous when corresponding with your contacts or reviewers as possible.
