Please note that most magazines like to review new books. So they need to see books (galley copies or advanced review copies) 12 to 24 weeks before the publication date of the book. For more about publication dates, see http://www.bookmarket.com/pubdate.htm.
But you can get an interview any time, or write an article, or serve as a background expert for an article.
