Frequently Asked Questions

(FAQ)

Reviewer

When you see a book of interest, you can read the extract without requesting for it. If you enjoy the extract, you can request a full version of the book in digital format.

Once an author has accepted your request you will receive a notification by email. You can then download the full book, read it and leave a balanced review by logging in and clicking on the give feedback button.

We accept a few different digital formats from authors:

.pdf (Adobe)

.ePub (Adobe)

.mobi (Amazon)

To read .pdf files you can use Adobe Acrobat Reader, this is a free download for Windows/MacOS/Android/iOS.

To read .epub files you will need Adobe Digital Editions,  this is a free download for Windows/MacOS/Android/iOS.

The .mobi format is primarily for reading on a Kindle but there are readers for other devices.

Author

No, we are happy to accept all books, old and new. Our objective is to support authors in getting their books out there to obtain feedback. If you need a helping hand with an older book that has not had the impact you anticipated, or a brand new book you’ve written, we are here to help!

After signing up as an author you can add a book. You will be required to add all book related info such as ISBN*, title, publication date, genre and synopsis.

You can then upload the book's jacket as well as the extract and full book in accepted digital formats.

Once your book is accepted by us it will become available on the platform for reviewers to check out and review.

*We realise not all self-published books have ISBN numbers. We do accept books without ISBN numbers (subject to our review procedure).

We accept a few different digital formats:

PDF (Adobe)

ePub (Adobe)

mobi (Amazon)

To read PDF files you can use Adobe Acrobat Reader, this is a free download for Windows/MacOS/Android/iOS.

To read .epub files you will need Adobe Digital Editions,  this is a free download for Windows/MacOS/Android/iOS.

The .mobi is primarily for reading on a Kindle but there are readers for other devices.

We suggest using .pdf files for extracts as they are the most easily viewable format.

For full books we would prefer .epub or .mobi.

Currently we don't use DRM but this will be phased in as the platform evolves. Our primary goal is to help promote self-published authors get started and add their book for reviewers to review for free.

This gets your book out there and with quality reviews and feedback and as well as promotion via our regular channels this will really help you take your passion to the next level.

We notify all reviewers that all books are copyright protected by their respective owners.

General

Yes you can. You can also sign up as an author but when adding books you must specify who the author is for each book rather than being the author you are able to add many books by different authors.
