General Information

Rainbow Book Reviews is a site dedicated to GLBTQ-related books, reviews, and authors who write about topics of interest to us and our friends.

We have a wide range of activities for you to check and participate in, if you wish. Feedback is always welcome. We publish new releases on a daily basis, have a team of reviewers who try to help you understand what to expect from a book, we publish monthly author interviews, and have author pages with in-depth information. You can also find out about the many great publishers who publish GLBTQ-related books.

We want to make sure the site offers what YOU want to see, so please contact us with any ideas or feedback at info@rainbowbookreviews.com. For individual staff members, please see the overview with names and contact details below.

For Authors:

Any authors who would like an author page, please write to us at info@rainbowbookreviews.com.


For Publishers:

Any publishers who would like to advertise and get their own publisher page, please contact us at info@rainbowbookreviews.com.

Book Review Submission Information

If you would like to submit a GLBTQ-themed book for review, please check the REQUEST REVIEW page, or send an e-mail to requestreview@rainbowbookreviews.com if you have a question. Please do not send books unless we request a copy. This is because we work off a list and cannot guarantee a review for all submissions. We operate on a voluntary basis, and reviewers pick the books they want to read.

Information we need from you if you wish to request a review:

  • Title
  • Author Name
  • Publisher Name (or enter “Self Published”)
  • Genre (Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Trans*/Queer or a mix of some or all of the above, Fiction/Non-Fiction/Poetry)
  • Number of pages or word count
  • Buy link
  • Blurb/Synopsis

Review Philosophy

We believe that reader tastes vary widely, and that all books will have fans as well as people who do not like them. Every book contains something worthwhile, and something to like. We do not believe that every book will be liked by everyone. We also think that there are quite a number of review sites out there that are critical to extremely critical, and we do not believe it is our task to add to that list.

What happens if one of our reviewers doesn’t like a book?

We will not publish the review; but we will inform the author/publisher who submitted the book. We will then return the book to our team list for another reviewer to pick up. They might like the book better, and if they do, we will publish that review.

Our Team of Reviewers:

Barb Manning


Lena Grey

Nerine Petros


Serena Yates


We are always open for guest reviews, so if you read a book you really liked and want us to consider posting it, please send an e-mail with the book details and your review to bookreviewmanager@rainbowbookreviews.com and we will get back to you.

If you would like to join our team on a more permanent basis, please send an e-mail to  bookreviewmanager@rainbowbookreviews.com. We will ask for a couple of sample reviews to see if you fit our style.
