Books Available for Review - Book Submissions Welcome - Open Deadline
Book Reviews: The Pennsylvania Literary Journal is looking for academics with tenure-track appointments to write book reviews of recent titles that have been released in their field of interest. Several academic publishers, including Harvard UP, Pearson, Random House, Penguin, Cambridge UP, Duke UP, and SUNY, have agreed to send free books to writers in exchange for the reviews. Unlike with other journals - it is up to you to find the book you want to read and that is helpful for your current research and to send a specific request to PLJ that will be forwarded to the publisher (if the author is qualified to write about the topic). Please email your CV and a brief statement with the title of the book/ publisher you would like to review and how you are qualified to write about the topic to firstname.lastname@example.org. All requested reviews are published.
Book Submissions Welcome: Anaphora Literary Press (www.anaphoraliterary.wordpress.com) is currently actively looking for new book-length academic and creative submissions from academics as well as from professional writers. Anaphora has hired over a dozen experienced interns from great schools to help with the proofreading process this summer, and there is a lot of room for new well-written works. Anaphora recently joined the Association of American Publishers and the Independent Book Publishers Association, and has been a member of the Council of Editors of Learned Journals for several years. 30 book titles were published in 2011. The summer is the most active time for the press, so now is the best time to submit projects. Anaphora is especially interested in writers who have experience marketing their prior books and who are interested in actively participating in selling and finding a market for their work. Books that you intend to teach in your college classes, or that somebody you are familiar intends to teach from are especially welcome. All fields - including, but not limited to, literature, history, business, biography and philosophy - are welcome. Send the full MS, bio, summary and a very brief and specific marketing plan to Anna Faktorovich, Ph.D., Director, at email@example.com.
