About Clarion Reviews
With Clarion Reviews, a team of more than one hundred qualified reviewers help you connect your stories with the hearts and minds of booksellers, librarians, and readers excited to find undiscovered indie literature. Their 450-word reviews critique all aspects of your book with an express delivery of 4-6 weeks. With your permission, your review will be posted on Foreword Review’s high traffic website and licensed to book wholesalers. Their partners, such as Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Cengage, and Bowker will spread the word to thousands of librarians and booksellers. (Please note that Clarion Reviews do not appear in the print edition of Foreword Reviews magazine.)
