Blogger Book's Reviews

How It Works

Please note: We have started our public beta period which will last from August 9, 2013 until Sept 9, 2013.  During this time the only books that are available for review are our books and one other print publisher.  If you see any issues or have any suggestions of ways to make the site better during this time please drop us a note via the contact page (contact link in top right hand side of the screen).  Once our beta period is over we will be asking self published authors and publishing companies to participate so the selection of books available for review should grow substantially.

BLOGGERS

Here is how it works:

  • You sign up to our site as a blogger.
  • You get our validation email and click on the validation link to activate your account.
  • You request a book (please do not request books unless you can review them within a 2 month time period after you get the book as it is not fair to the author/publisher).
  • If this is a print book, the publisher will get a copy of your username and your address details to mail you your book.  Remember you can’t get another book until the current book has arrived, you have read it and done a review and posted it.
  • If this is an eBook you will get an email with a link that will allow you to download an electronic copy of the book.
    • If you are using a computer you will need to load Adobe Digital Editions onto your computer and then click on the book link in your email.  You will be asked to login and click on a link and your book will be downloaded to Adobe Digital Editions.
    • If you are using an approved eReader (you might need to download an app like firereader on your device in order to get it to work) all you will need to do is open our email on your device and click on the link.  Sign in and then click on the book link and the book will be download to your device.
  • Once you have read the book do a review (around 200 words), post it on your site, post it on another retail site (like Amazon, Goodreads, etc). and then post it on our site with the links to the other sites.
  • Get another Book!
  • If you get contacted by an author or publisher please report them via our contact page.  we want to make it easy and painless for you to get reviews done without getting hounded by Authors or publishers.

This is the point where we make note that we are just providing the link to connect authors and publishers to bloggers like yourself so they can get reviews.

What do you get out of the deal?

Free Books

A chance to win our prize pool which starts at $500 USD on Dec 1 of every year and keeps growing (every time someone does a review they get an entry into the draw and we add a an amount to the pot to keep it growing) until it is won on the last day of November every year.

You can also join our affiliate program where you will get $5 for every author that you bring to our site via your affiliate link that buys a review package regardless of whether or not you do the review or not.

AUTHORS

Here is how it works:

You sign up to our site as an Author/Publisher.

You get our validation email and click on the validation link to activate your account.

You “Add a Book” to have reviews done on.

  • You enter the book and publisher details and then click on the submit button
  • Then upload the ebook (PDF or EPUB) If your book is an eBook.
  • Our site is a pay site, you pay per review done.  Current price per review = $2.  For large publishing companies please contact us via contact page for better rates.
  • Please note, we do not have control over the review and nor do you.  Some reviews will be good and some will be not be so good, that is part of the review process.  The people doing these reviews are bloggers that love reading and reviewing books.

Now you are waiting for us to approve the book (we do this as quick as possible).

Once we have approved your book, it will be ready for bloggers to request.

If the book is an eBook, a blogger can download and start reading the book right away. (please be patient here as it can take some time for a blogger to get this done, our system will automatically send out reminders to bloggers)

If the book is a print book you will get an email when a blogger requests your book with a userid, book details and an address.  NO contacting bloggers directly, this will get you kicked out of the program.  We have requested that bloggers not take books if they can’t complete the review within 2 months of getting your book.
