As indie authors grow in numbers, the landscape of indie book reviews is changing.A few years ago Kirkus still ignored indie books and Blue Ink didn’t exist—who knows how things will stand a few years from now, or how much might change even in the next few months?
Several major review publications, including *, accept indie books for review. Kirkus is one of the best-known book reviewers, but it reviews indie books only when the publisher pays a $425 fee for the review. That process takes seven to nine weeks; you can shorten that to four to six weeks for $575.
