Loyal Lyre reviews one indie book per month guaranteed - more if possible. All books are purchased and reviewed in paperback format only.

Do you have a fabulous book you'd like featured on this website? Then, if you fit the below criteria, fill out the short form below.

  • You're an indie author or with a small press

  • Your book is available in paperback - ebook versions are currently not being reviewed

  • You have one isolated book to submit, or

  • You have the first in a series to submit (if your series is very long, it may be limited to a first-book feature, it depends on time and how amazing it is because I may just go and read them all)

  • Any genre is accepted for submission, however, time and taste will dictate which books are featured - no submissions can be guaranteed acceptance

  • Fiction and non-fiction are accepted

  • No reviews yet?- Great books have to start somewhere!

Your book will be judged honestly on (but not limited to):

  • story and character merit (if novels)

  • research and content (if non-fiction)

  • overall writing quality


Remember, ultimately these are books preferred and promoted by Loyal Lyre, and so please don't feel bad if your book isn't chosen this time. You can always submit another book in the future.

Indie authors create fantastic work, and review levels are not a deciding factor for this request. You can have zero reviews and still submit. In fact, finding a relatively unknown piece of beauty is not exactly a loss!
