We are self published, "Cook Books" and would like to know how to get reviews.  Web Site is www.seedtosupper.com (for your reference).  We are just now getting started on our own sales and marketing and need help.
Thanks for your time.

Answer
CONGRATULATIONS on publishing your cook books!

To get book reviews, I'd contact websites and newspapers that review non-fiction books.  You can also check food-focused magazines and see if they do book reviews.  If they do, contact the editor and ask what you have to do to get your book reviewed.

Midwest Book Review
New York Times Book Review
Book clubs
Bookreview.com
Bookspot.com
The Washington Post

are just a few of the places that review books.

Best wishes!
