SpeakEasy. Subversive reading. Great ideas. Shh! Pass it on.

Join Speakeasy and we connect you with quality books in exchange for candid reviews on your blog or podcast.

Are you an author or publisher interested in reaching just the right readers through word-of-mouth? To see if your book qualifies for a Speakeasy campaign, email Mike and he'll be in touch!

How to be "in" — it's as easy as one, two, three.

  1. Do you blog or podcast? Do you read books on faith, culture, and the like? Apply to become a Speakeasy Bootlegger.
  2. Every so often a new “shipment” arrives — quality books (and occasionally music) to our underground lair, ready to review. You find out. You come to the source if you're thirsty — first-come, first-served.
  3. You blog about the books you choose within 30 days, and you let us know. Just your honest opinion. And the book is yours to keep — gratis.
