We collaborate with, and support, all manner of individuals and groups from the Irish literary scene. Outlined below are just some of the ways in which we would like to work with you.

First Flush and review process:

We encourage you to send in review copies of all
recently published books for inclusion in our First Flush listing. Once listed in ‘First Flush’, the editor will select specific titles for future feature
review. Unlike many other media, here at Books Ireland, we guarantee to comment on and list every single book sent to us in our regular ‘First Flush’ feature, provided they meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Irish author
  • Irish publisher
  • Irish interest
  • All books require an ISBN number.

Send all review copies for attention of:
