Notable and quotable reviews

Yes, our editors and contributors review the top Texas titles and authors—but with so much great activity in a big state, we'll reach out to only a fraction of them.  While we don't accept solicitations for Lone Star Reviews, if you need a professionally written review to reach Texas readers and booksellers—timed with your launch—consider our Lone Star Sponsored Reviews service.


  •     We review self-published books as well as titles by established publishers.
  •     We review fiction and nonfiction.


For only $249 ($279 for nonfiction), our qualified reviewers will provide a review (of at least 500 words) with a full evaluation and quotable tagline, within 4 weeks of our receiving the finished copy. And if for any reason the resulting review doesn’t fit with your marketing plans, you’ll have the opportunity to opt out of publication in advance, while still gaining valuable insights regarding your book.
