SPFBO 2017

This year is the 2nd year in which The Qwillery is participating as an "agent" in The Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off (SPFBO). We had a huge learning curve last year and have made some changes to how we will be handling which books get full reviews and how we choose our finalist.

Four of us will be reading the beginning (up to 50 pages) of every book assigned to The Qwillery to find books that we want to read fully and review. If you can't interest one of us in the those first several chapters then we will not read the full book. We hope to end up with at least 5 books that get full reads. Those books will be reviewed and the book we put through to the final round will be chosen from those books.

As soon as we have all the covers we'll pick our favorites and post about them. If you'd like to send a high-res cover to us please send it to theqwillery . reviews @ gmail . com (remove all the spaces).

  1. Hi -- do we need to send you a copy of our books now, or is that later? (New to this, obviously). Thanks!
