Looking for a reviewer for your online dark fiction? Read the requirements, fill out a form that fits best, and send a request. Lily Blaze will let you know if she’s interested within 24 hours. Continue reading to learn how you can submit for a dark fiction review.

Dark Fiction Review Requirements

First and foremost, your submission must be dark. The darker the better.

Characters die? Doesn’t matter. Gory? Not a problem. Taboo subjects? That’s okay as long as there’s a plot. Extreme and/or SplatterPunk? Bring it on.

Second, adult fiction preferred. Some NA might be considered, but it still needs to be as dark as possible.

Third, Lily Blaze is looking for quality over quantity.

Last but certainly not least, priority will given to authors/creators/artists who are unknown and struggling to get reviews.
