I'm a booktuber or a bookstagramer, can I receive a box for review?

We are always looking for new reviewers and promotion platforms. If you are a booktuber or a bookstagramer, please do get in touch with us! Unfortunately, we have a small promotion budget and can't guarantee review boxes to everyone who approaches us. But we will ALWAYS reply to you. Priority is given those who are UK-based and have a significant platform.

I'm a publisher or a vender, how can I contact you?

Please email us! We would love to hear from you about your products. Please be aware that we only feature books by LGBTQ+, BAME or disabled AUTHORS.

I ordered by mistake/ already have this book. How do I get a refund?

We can only offer refunds in the case where the box has not arrived or has been significantly damaged. Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds for customers who have already purchased the title elsewhere. If you place an order with us and then decide you do not want the product, before the shipping date, refunds are at our discretion. We must commit to ordering stock quite early and may have already ordered your box. We may offer you a partial refund.
