New! Customer Reviews on


They say everyone’s a critic. Which, we believe, is a good thing. If you’ve spent any time reading this blog, you’ve probably noticed that Chronicle Books is not an ivory tower kind of place. Our editors openly accept bribes, our authors solicit fans for new ideas, and we almost can’t help ourselves from giving away trade secrets on a weekly basis.

Some of our best ideas have come from our readers, so we make it a habit to pay attention when people like you have something to say. With that in mind, we’ve launched a brand new Customer Reviews feature on our website that allows visitors to rate and review any of our books.

It’s easy! Simply navigate to the title’s web page, scroll down to the “Customer Reviews” area, and click on the “write a review” link. If you are not already logged in to our site, you will be prompted for your login or asked to set up an account first—don’t worry, it’s super fast and all we require is your name and email address (which, btw, we never share). Once your review is approved (keep it clean, people!) we will post it to the site.

To kick things off, we’re offering a special promotion with this launch. Each month this year—beginning in February—we’ll randomly select one visitor who’s submitted reviews. The more reviews you write the more entries you’ll have in the drawing. The 11 winners will receive a free book of their choice (up to $50).

So tell us what you REALLY think. And get crackin’! (Our friend Holly G has already got a head start…)
