Releasing my first book!

Hey everyone!

I'm new here. Loving what I'm reading so far. :)

I'm releasing my first poetry book in a few weeks and I'm so excited! Does anyone here know of any poetry blogs that accept books for review, Q&As, etc? I'm trying to get the word out.

Thanks! :)

Very few poetry outlets will promise to review a book in advance of seeing a copy, I'm afraid. But getting readers to post reviews on Amazon and other online places can certainly help. You could also post some sample poems on the Write Out Loud poetry blogs as a way of creating interest, and give details of how to get hold of your book when it is published. Good luck!

You might like to try Coreopsis, A Journal of Myth & Theatre, they accept text-only admissions (not pdf files) for peer review free of charge. Here is a link to their seasonal journal:
Some peer reviews are charged for through an agency. Having published my own anthology and written a screenplay I have wasted a lot of money signing up to these agents who simply take your money and run. Nothing it seems is guaranteed. Good luck with your first publication.
