Our editors are selecting books for Featured New Releases based on their knowledge of the type of content our readers are currently responding best to in each category. This can include particular plot elements or tropes our readers enjoy or authors whose books they’ve been excited about in the past. In order to help our editors know whether your new book might be a good fit for our readers, we’d recommend including links to early reviews from bloggers and readers, blurbs from authors, and other information that may help our editors assess the content and early reception of your new book.
We have a limited number of spots available in each weekly Featured New Release email, so similar to our Featured Deal selection process, your book will be compared to the other books our editorial team is reviewing for the same release window. Changes in the quality and volume of books that our editors are reviewing for a given week may impact their selection criteria.
