Let's Talk About Clarion Fee-for-Review; I'm Proud of Our Objective Standards
Unfortunately, sleazy services are what give the phrase “paid reviews” a bad name and tarnishes them all. So, with that in mind, I want to give a brief tour of what we do at Foreword Reviews, particularly our Clarion fee-for-review service.
Make a connection with their hearts
From honest, credible reviews to distinguished book awards, from advertising opportunities to trade show connections, Foreword bridges indie books and readers' hearts.
To simply put it,
we love to discover great books that others haven't.
And once they've won our hearts,
we want to make sure everyone else can share the love.
We want to help readers find the indie books
that are just too damn good to put down.
So if you've crafted a great story,
let us help you connect it with audiences around the world.
Get Your Book Reviewed
You have an indie book.
We have several dozen talented reviewers.
Let's just make it happen.
Foreword offers honest,
credible reviews of indie books,
and we've been doing it for over 20 years.
If you're about to publish a new indie book,
send us a review copy
consider reviewing it alongside the
rest of the best new indie books
in our bi-monthly magazine,
If your book doesn't earn a review in Foreword,
or is past its pub date,
you can still get it reviewed
and star-rated in Clarion,
our fee-for-review service
using Foreword reviewers.
Win a Book Award
You've crafted something fabulous,
and now it's time to turn more heads,
earn more credibility,
and intertwine your stories
with the heartstrings of readers.
The Foreword INDIES
are here for you.
More than a shiny little sticker
for the cover of your book,
our prestigious awards program
annually honors great indie literature
with 250 winners in 62 genres.
Along with cash prizes

amongst librarians and booksellers,
further help connect your book to readers
excited to discover what's fabulous.
We know you want to reach an audience
of book lovers, booksellers, and librarians—the
exact circulation base of Foreword Reviews.
So instead of having your book
sit there waiting for readers
to find it by chance,
why not take it straight to them?
We have advertising opportunities
in all the right places,
which easily allow you to reach the perfect audience.
Between our bi-monthly print magazine,
our weekly emails,
and our social media campaigns,
will connect you to lovers of great indie books.
Gain Exposure at Trade Shows
Whether you're an indie author or an indie publisher,
your book may be of great interest to readers overseas.
Which is why many foreign publishers
eagerly buy the rights to books
published in the United States,
in order to translate and republish them
in their home country.
These foreign rights deals
can be highly profitable for US publishers,
with very little effort.
there is the added benefit
that new readers around the world
can get lost in your book.
A major presence at foreign rights fairs,
Foreword makes it easy—we
are your indie book concierge to the world.
We'll help you sell the rights to your books
at every major book show in the world—from
BookExpo to Beijing, Frankfurt, Shanghai, Bologna, and more.
