ForeWord Reviews reviews only good books, independently published.
The magazine was launched to draw attention to the literary achievements of independent publishers and their authors.
It is the only magazine showcasing pre-publication reviews and category trends exclusively from the exploding small press market.
This coveted information comes at a time when most print review publications are cutting their pages and limiting coverage of books from little known authors or publishers, the very presses whose output continues to increase.
We normally print 8,000 copies of the magazine, with a couple of issues seeing
10,000+ when extra distribution is needed for book fairs and events, such as BEA, ALA, Beijing, Frankfurt, London, Bologna, and Moscow.
All said, our readership is 85% librarians, 12% bookstores, and 3% publishing professionals.
