Dear Person Reading This,
Vernacular Books exists to provide a hub of awesome SF/F in a wide variety of forms and ways. We review books, draw really badly, write stuff, help people write stuff, and seek out new life and civilizations.
If you are interested in submitting work for review, you can always contact us at vernacularbookreviews at gmail.com for information about file formats and/or P.O. boxes. We can also send you a rate sheet for advertisements, and/or for sponsored content. About that sponsored content…
There are two ways to get a book reviewed here at Vernacular. First, you could just send us a book or thing and we might review it. We also might not. There’s lots of books to read, after all! We only wish we could read them all! Second, you could ask us about sponsoring the site for a week, and we will put together a sponsored post about whatever it is you want us to cover, as long as it’s suitable for our core mission and audience. (We’re not up for reviewing your wonky appstore apps, sorry. Books, man. Books. SF/F or books that are speculative in nature.)
We hope to hear from you, soon!
Eric and Joe
P.S. Wait, do you know us? Have we met?
