MANHATTAN CHRONICLES ON-LINE REVIEWS 
 
Starting March 2013, Manhattan Chronicles will offer both pre and post release reviews of Books, Plays, Theater Performances in New York, and Films.

MC's pre-publication reviews allow publishers, writers, producers, and directors to synchronize their books' advance publicity campaigns with the release of reviews—to create as much buzz as possible for their new titles. To be considered for a review in the pages of  Manhattan Chronicles, the title in question must be received at least one month prior to the book's firm publication date. MC's editor-in-chief will then carefully analyze whether the project meets our editorial requirements.
 
MC's post-publication/premiere reviews allows reviews for books, plays, and films that missed getting enough reviews prior to their initial release. 
 
We accept Kindle, PDF and Word files, along with the cover art and press release.  With your agreement, the reviews will be posted on Manhattan Chronicles website, on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles and Goodreads.

The resulting review will be featured on the Manhattan Chronicles website, and made available to the publisher for promotional purposes.
