Some of the most frequently asked questions.
Featured Authors & Reviews
How do I become a Feature Author in Uncaged?
This is pretty straight-forward, all an author needs to do is ask. Once we settle on an open slot, we will need a book from the author to read. If the author's book is the one featured in the article, then the book review would be a part of the article, if not, it would be placed in the back review section. Go to THIS PAGE to see our current openings.
How many open slots are in each month?
Normally, we have seven open slots per month for a Feature Author. During the months of May through September, there are only six because of summer time constraints with a farm.
What is the "Catch Up with" in Uncaged?
"Catch Up with" is a newer feature in Uncaged Book Reviews, where we talk to an author that was previously a Feature Author in a past issue and we find out what has been happening since their feature. Uncaged does not forget it's past Feature Authors. 🙂
What genre's are accepted?
Right now, we read any genre except non-fiction and children's books.
Does it cost anything for Uncaged to Feature an author or for reviews?
No. Both of these services are FREE to authors.
What format do you accept, and where do I send a copy of my book?
We accept both mobi and PDF formats fine and can be sent to UncagedBooks@gmail.com. Please email for the physical address if you'd like to send a print book
How long does it take for a review?
Unfortunately, at this time, there is no guarantee when we can get them reviewed. When there is a large backlog, it could take 2-4 months. If you have a release date you'd like a review by, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you, and give us as much notice as possible. On the Requested Reviews page, you will see the Review Status highlighted with the wait times. At the moment, we are in the yellow zone, which is longer wait times.
What are the Tiers in the Review section?
Tier 1 reviews are for authors and publishing houses that support Uncaged Book Reviews with either purchasing ads in the magazine, or if they've shared extensively on their networks for at least three months. Even though this Tier is the first considered by reviewers when choosing books - we will work on Tier 2 also.
Advertising in Uncaged Book Reviews
Uncaged is supported through advertising. The magazine hits 30-35K views in the first month it's uploaded, and remains uploaded for up to two years, making it a great value.
