For Authors 

I sub­mit­ted a book for review. Why haven’t I heard back / Why has­n’t a review been published?

Books are reviewed at the dis­cre­tion of the edi­to­r­i­al team, who eval­u­ate books based on qual­i­ty and Jew­ish con­tent. Please note that we only review a small num­ber of the books that are sub­mit­ted to us.

Due to the large num­ber of sub­mis­sions Jew­ish Book Coun­cil receives, it usu­al­ly takes the edi­to­r­i­al team two to three months to reach a deci­sion on each sub­mis­sion. If, after that time, you would like to check on the sta­tus of your sub­mis­sion, you may email info@​jewishbooks.​org with the name of your book and the date you sub­mit­ted the title. Please be aware that we will not noti­fy you once a deci­sion has been reached unless you con­tact us in this man­ner. We do not pro­vide feed­back as to why or why not spe­cif­ic books are cho­sen to be reviewed.

Do you have a list of agents and pub­lish­ers who work on Jew­ish-inter­est books?

While we don’t have a list of spe­cif­ic agents or pub­lish­ers, we rec­om­mend find­ing com­pa­ra­ble titles and read­ing the acknowl­edg­ments for poten­tial agent pos­si­bil­i­ties, and look­ing at the pub­lish­er. Addi­tion­al­ly, you may be inter­est­ed in attend­ing one of our writ­ers’ sem­i­nars where we bring togeth­er indi­vid­u­als across the pub­lish­ing indus­try, includ­ing agents and pub­lish­ers, to meet with authors.
