Hi, I’m Stephanie Sibal, senior publicist at Ave Maria Press. Thanks for your interest in our authors and their books.

We welcome honest reviews of Ave books, interviews with our outstanding authors, or excerpts from our titles. We offer two formats for review books—a link to the uncorrected first proof advanced copy to forthcoming releases via NetGalley (our preference) or final copies of books. We generally don’t accept requests for PDFs.

In return for your review copy, please provide me with a link to your review or interview. It’s also extremely helpful to authors if you leave a review on their book’s Amazon page.

Please take a look at Ave’s lists of just released or forthcoming titles.

If I can be of assistance in setting up an interview or excerpt, or for other press inquiries, please feel free to contact me at sibal.1@nd.edu. Please note that high-res images of book covers are available on individual book pages on our website.

Send an email to me and include your name, media outlet (and link), mailing address, and contact email.
