Need more Reviews for your eBook?

Or, are you about to publish a book that does not have a single review yet?

Get reviews with the R&R Program by Choosy Bookworm!

Choosy Bookworm’s Read & Review Program: Essential for authors who need reviews for their books. A way to get honest feedback and make some new fans!”Linda Lee Williams, author of Old Town Nights

 

How It Works

  1. We will advertise your eBook to our readers (published or pre-release)
  2. Interested readers will sign up to receive your eBook for free
  3. You send the eBook as a MOBI or PDF
  4. Readers will read your book and post a review on Amazon / GoodReads

For pre-release books: Start the program 7 to 10 days before your publication date to potentially have reviewers READY to post their review when the book goes live on Amazon!

 

“I just want to thank you so much for this program, it’s helped me get other books off the ground and I know it will do the same for The Back Building!”Julie Dewey, author of One Thousand Porches

 

First Things First

With the Read & Review Program, you are not buying reviews. Buying reviews would be against Amazon’s Terms of Services.

However, you are purchasing:

  • Access to new readers and hopefully a few new fans!
  • Advertising space on our site and in our newsletter for your R&R book
  • A Choosy Bookworm service that encourages our readers to leave an honest review after reading your book

Choosy Bookworm readers do not receive any compensation, other than the free eBook.

 

“Choosy Bookworm was very professional to work with. I found it to be a great way to connect with new readers, and to receive new honest reviews for my novel. Thank you!”Harvey Chute, author of Stone and Silt

 

Our Guarantee

Most books that have “graduated” from the R&R program did receive between 12 and 25 reviews. If a book does not receive enough attention or reviews because it is just not a good match for our audience, we do offer to continue to feature the book on our site and in the newsletter.  Alternatively, an author may choose to exit the program and receive a no-cost Premium Feature book promo or 2 Guaranteed Features as compensation (in case of Premium R&R’s, the compensation doubles to 2 no-cost Premium Feature book promos or 4 Guaranteed Features ).

Benefits of Reviews for Your Book

  • More attractive to potential buyers
  • Eligible sooner to promote on sites with minimum review requirements
  • No more begging friends and family to read and leave reviews
  • No more begging on social media

 

“I wanted to let you know that I’ve really benefited from your premium program. I started out with 13 reviews for Shimmer and now am up to 35. I’ve gotten email sign ups as well as readers who have let me know they have gone out and bought the entire series. This was probably the most results I’ve gotten out I’ve any ads or marketing I’ve done. My sales have continually gone up since November. I’ve referred some author friends already and I will be signing up for another book very soon.“Elena Dillon, author of Shimmer

“I just wanted to say thank you ;). On Tuesday night, I sent out the first batch of mobi copies to the reviewers you’d given me that day, and I just emailed out the copies to these two new reviewers below. I’ve gotten some very nice feedback from a couple of readers already on THE ROAD TO YOU and am keeping my fingers crossed that most of the others will enjoy it as well…

Thanks so much for providing this wonderful way to connect with new readers!” – Marilyn Brant, author of The Road to You

FAQ Answers

What services does Choosy Bookworm’s Read & Review Program offer?
If your book is accepted into the program, the fee will cover advertising space in our newsletter (more than once if needed) as well as advertising space on our R&R page. We will send you email addresses of interested readers as they sign up. We will also follow up with the readers on day 14 and on day 21 after requesting your eBook to remind them to leave a review. We are offering “leads”, meaning email addresses of interested readers who have specifically signed up to read your book.  We will continue to feature the book until enough readers have requested or reviewed the book.  In addition, you, the author, have the choice to exit the program early and receive no-cost-to-you book promos as compensation.
Back to FAQs

Can I feature a Pre-Release book?
Yes you can! This would help by giving your book a great boost right up front! 🙂
Back to FAQs

What are your requirements in order for a book to be enrolled in the Read & Review Program?
There are no special requirements to be enrolled in the R&R Program. It is not necessary for the book to be of a certain length or to have a certain number of reviews already. However, please note that if your book is not a “quality book”, it may not receive the best reviews possible. You, as the author, take the risk. So, it is in your best interest to make sure that your book is of good quality.
Back to FAQs

How should I gift my book?
The choice is yours! Some authors prefer to send MOBI files while others opt for PDF files. Some authors have even opted to gift Smashwords coupons.  You, the author, and not allowed to use a third-party service that advertises a competitor’s product (such as InstaFreebie). It is best to distribute the eBooks one at a time with a personal email for each reader.
Back to FAQs

How many books will I need to give out?
We will send you a minimum of 30 email addresses of readers who signed up to read and review your eBook. However, given that it is likely that not all readers will review your book, we will do our best to send you up to 30 – 33 interested readers. Our advice is to give out as many eBooks as possible to increase the likelihood of a good number of reviews. Premium R&R Features will receive an extra 20 readers.

Readers may contact you if they have questions or feedback, so please be sure to sign up with the email address you’d want them to use.
Back to FAQs

Am I, the author, allowed to contact the readers?
Yes absolutely! As a matter of fact, we hope that you will gain a few fans in the process! Authors who have gone through the program report having received emails from readers who are excited about their book and purchased and reviewed additional books by the same author as well. Take good care of those readers! Maybe they’ll become part of your “street team” — a group of very interested readers who can not wait to read and review your future books!

Needless to say, even though personal contact between authors and their readers has the potential of building some great relationships, it does not always come without headaches. Please keep the good in mind in case you are facing any hassles (e.g. emails from readers asking questions you thought you’ve answered already).

In any case, it goes without saying that you need to be professional at all times with our readers…even if someone writes a not-so-friendly email or leaves a not-so-friendly review.
Back to FAQs

Are the readers compensated for reading the book and posting a book review?
No. Our readers enjoy receiving free books they are interested in and post their reviews on a voluntary basis. These readers are not employed by us and are not compensated in any other way. Thus, all we do is ask them to leave a review. Also, per Amazon’s policy, Amazon reserves the right to reject any review. (This has not happened within our program before.) Our experience has been so far that about 40-60% will leave a review.

If for any reason your book does not reach the 40-60% review rate, we will continue to advertise your book to find more readers for you. In the end, we want you to be happy with the program and its results.
Back to FAQs

Do all books receive the same response?
Not at all. Some books will receive all of their interested readers in one day, while other books may take months to receive the required response. It really all depends on what kind of books our readers are looking for at that particular time. While our list of “R&R graduates” includes (almost) all genres, romance and mystery books tend to do best.
Back to FAQs

Do you offer any guarantees?
Yes.

If for any reason a book does not reach the advertised number of interested readers or the 40-60% review rate, we will continue to advertise the book to find more readers – for up to 9 months from the book’s first R&R newsletter feature.  If for any reason a book does not have enough interested readers after 9 months, the book will be taken out of the R&R Program and you, the author, will receive 1 free Premium Feature as compensation (2 in case of Premium R&R’s) for any book of your choice.

Alternatively, you may choose to exit the program early and receive 1 free Premium Feature as compensation (2 in case of Premium R&R’s).  

Back to FAQs

Can I send additional free eBooks to the readers we sent your way?
No. For example, if you have written 3 eBooks and an interested reader we sent you reads and reviews the eBook you have had enrolled in the R&R Program, you are not permitted to gift your other 2 eBooks to this reader (with or without a request for a review) – even if your eBook is no longer enrolled in our program.

If you would like to have an additional eBook reviewed, please enroll it in the R&R Program as well. The reason is simply that an interested reader who receives additional free eBooks no longer has time to read and review eBooks that are currently enrolled in the R&R program, with is unfair to the other authors and to Choosy Bookworm.
Back to FAQs

Can I use a service like InstaFreebie or any other which advertises a competing product to distribute your book to our interested readers?
Unfortunately, I have to give you a big ‘No’ on that one. You know, for obvious reasons… :o)
Back to FAQs

Can I use the R&R Program while my book is enrolled in KDP or a similar program?
It is up to the author to make sure he/she complies with any and all agreements made. (Meaning: I am not a legal expert and you, the author, have the responsibility to be sure to be compliant with anything you have agreed to do.)
Back to FAQs

Where can I find the Terms and Conditions that apply to the R&R Program?
The Standard Choosy Bookworm Terms and Conditions apply. In addition, the R&R Program terms apply as well.
