We reserve the right to use quotes from reviews in promotional materials, but most of all, we pass reviews along to the editors and authors as valuable feedback. We expect reviews to be published within 60 days of receipt of the book.
Review copies are available in ebook format and/or as print books. We cannot ship review copies outside our normal distribution territories. Foreign requests may be limited to ebooks.
