ADVERTISING: ARWZ Magazine offers a number of affordable advertising packages for publishers, authors and anyone aiming to reach scifi, fantasy and horror fans as part of their marketing strategy. Please browse our advertising packages for more information on how ARWZ can help you market your next novel, newest product releases and upcoming events.
THE MARKETPLACE: Authors, publishers and other professionals are welcome to post bulletins on upcoming signings, releases and new fiction markets in The Marketplace at ARWZ.
REVIEWS: ARWZ Editors base their reading lists and review schedules on a number of factors, including our own finds, availability of materials, and recommendations from members of our associate pages. In many cases, we can add your book(s) to our reading list upon request. Publishers interested in sending us ARCs and review copies should contact our senior editor, S.K. Slevinski for more information on where to send them. If you are an author and wish to arrange a review of your book, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line "ATTN: Review Request." Our editors prefer audiobooks for review; print books will also be accepted as individual assignments can be made to our active reviewers. Please note, because of the tightness of our reading schedule and the limited availablity of publishing slots, we can no longer accept self-published books for review. Books submitted to ARWZ for review must be produced by peer review publications, even if they are small press. Books published through POD, author-funded and liberally-inclusive publishers such as Lulu, PublishAmerica or AuthorHouse are considered "self-published." We also cannot accept books in electronic format. The expense of printing out the novel or of using portable electronic readers is prohibitive. If your novel meets our other criteria, but is published in e-book only, you may arrange to provide a print-out to us by postal mail.
INTERACTIVE Q & A: ARWZ Magazine invites interested authors and other professionals in the business of writing and publishing to participate in scheduled Q&A sessions on our Community Forums. Q&A sessions will be open for a minimum of a week. As Q&A subject, you will be expected to answer questions posted by our members at least once a day for the duration of the Q&A session. A username will be provided for you. Q&A sessions can last longer than a week if you wish to make the committment to answering questions for a longer period of time. Q&A sessions allow authors to make contact with existing fans and reach new fans within their wider target audience. Once complete, Q&A topics will be archived on the forums and a transcript will be published on ARWZ Magazine. We typically like to coordinate the publication of a review or other article relating to the Q&A subject with the opening of the Q&A, so you may be asked to provide our editors with a review copy of your book or other relevant materials. To inquire about setting up a Q&A with ARWZ readers, please write to email@example.com, subject line "ATTN: Q&A Request"
INTERVIEWS: Interviews on ARWZ are by invitation only. If you would like to be interviewed by ARWZ Magazine, the first step is to request a review of your book. Our current policy is to initiate the interview process only after we have published a review of one or more of your books. The reviewer in most cases will be the interviewer. You may, when requesting a review of your book, indicate to our editors that you would be willing to set up an interview pending the results of the review. If you are a publisher seeking to send review copies and wish to encourage us to interview your authors, please provide author contact information in the form of email addresses. See the information above on Review Requests to initiate this process.
OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS: It should go without saying that we welcome contributions by established authors or publishing professionals in all of our features. Express your opinions in a review or editorial. Submit an article or story, either for first publication or reprint. Stop by our Community Forums to reach new fans. Let us know how you would like to participate in the ARWZ Community.
