In the interest of encouraging reviews, thought I’d start a thread for those of us offering complimentary copies of published works to interested reviewers. (I wasn’t sure whether this best belonged in Publishing and Marketing or here, but figured this is the reader’s hangout, so…)
Authors and publishers: If you have free books to offer for review, post here!
Suggested format, cut and paste, and alter as necessary…
[b]Title:[/b] [b]Type:[/b] (novel, novella, short story collection, graphic novel, whatever) [b]Genre:[/b] [b]Formats available:[/b] (electronic, print - feel free to list specific filetypes if you want) [b]Rating/advisories:[/b] [b]Blurb:[/b] [b]Terms/restrictions: [/b] [b]Preferred place(s) to post reviews:[/b] [b]How to contact:[/b]
(Please note, this is not for seeking critique or comments on stories posted on FA/SoFurry/etc.)
Potential reviewers: First, please play fair and only request works you’re actually going to read and review. Second, when you post your review, please mention somewhere in the text that you received a free copy from the author (or publisher, whatever’s appropriate) in exchange for an honest review.
