Worth Reading – Submit Your Book

We are delighted that you would consider having your book featured on Women of Wisdom Magazine. We feature books by women, about women and/or for women over 40.

If you decide to send us a copy of your book, here are some things to keep in mind…

We Write Recommendations, Not Reviews
Because it is challenging enough for new authors to get noticed, we only make recommendations on this site, and we never write negative reviews. Having said that, we may elect not to feature your book, if we feel that it isn’t a match for our editorial standards. Because there just isn’t enough time to read all of the wonderful books we receive, it is possible that we may just not be able to get to your book.  To see books we have recently featured, visit: https://womenofwisdom.com/category/worth-reading/

There is no deadline for submission, however we prefer to review books within a year of their release date. We are open to reviewing older books if they are timely, evergreen and you can convince us the book is worth reviewing.

What our readers say

Thanks for sending me the links to all the terrific coverage of Ellen Pall’s book. She’s thrilled; as am I. Look forward to working with you again soon. Regards, Javier Perez,  Page-Turner Publicity

How long does it take to have a book featured on Women of Wisdom?
That depends. Typically we are able to publish featured books within four to six weeks from receipt but it can take up to 10 weeks to feature. If your book is not appropriate, we will let you know so you do not have to wait and see if it is going to be featured. While we welcome you writing to see how long it will take to feature, it will not make the process any quicker. However, a gentle nudge around the 8 week mark is suggested as we may be backlogged with submissions.

We do offer to feature books within a week of receipt – to guarantee a book is featured sooner than the published 10 week time-frame, consider our expedited publishing feature – the fee to guarantee having your book featured within 7 days is $35. If that is of interest, when submitting book info below, please include if you want the expedited option.  We will send you an invoice and once paid, the book feature will be published within 7 days.

We currently offer two options for featuring books – an AUTHOR INTERVIEW and a BOOK EXCERPT.
