Review Policy

A snobbery-free zone.




please email us at:

reviewrequest [at] portsmouthreview [dot] com

Any genre except erotica is accepted for consideration. Include as much detail as possible but do not include the full work as an attachment.  A simple email will suffice – you may embed images such as a book or album cover as well. You may include us on publicity email lists.




If you are a local New England author (Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, or Connecticut), we have two options for you.

  1. If you have a new release (about to be published, or newly released in the past three months), we will add your book details to our Local Author New Releases section.
  2. If you are a local author and your book was published more than three months ago, we would love to include you with an author interview.

Email is at reviewrequest [at] portsmouthreview [dot] com and include “Local Author” in the subject line.




We offer full page reviews for local northern New England events and exhibitions. As long as we can reach it, we can review it. We do not ask for money in exchange for these reviews, but tickets must be provided.

For more information email  reviewrequest [at] portsmouthreview [dot] com and include “Local Event” in the subject line.




We will provide a permanent, full page, in-depth editorial on your business complete with images, backlinks, and a starred rating that will appear in the Google search results. Please visit our advertising page to learn more.
