Do Reader Reviews Make a Difference?

Yes! Reader reviews are the life-blood of every Author's career. Reviews from readers like you can guide an author's future story creation, boost morale, and so much more.

FAQ for Authors

eBook Discovery's Read and Review Club from the Author's Perspective.

The Read & Review Club is:

  • A simple and affordable way for authors to connect with a large group of avid readers who voluntarily post honest reviews.
  • A way for avid readers to acquire good books.
  • We fully adhere to the highest ethical standards and follow Amazon's policies.

The eBook Discovery Read & Review Club is NOT a pay-for-review service. Our club members receive no direct compensation, except for a free copy of your book.
Please Note: Your paid fee does not buy book reviews. You are paying to reach a select group of avid readers who have self-identified as readers and reviewers of your book's genre/category.

How does the program work?

  •  You pay one flat fee and provide a copy of your book's .epub file and cover. We handle the rest.
  • A page is added to the end of your ebook that contains links to the major eRetailer(s) where your book is listed. Club members use these links to voluntarily post honest reviews.
  • We then place your book and its corresponding download link in a PRIVATE eZine and send it to our Reviewers who have self-identified as readers & reviewers of your book's genre (category). 
  • Readers have 5 days to download a copy of your book from our servers. Then the link expires. We utilize ProlificWorks as a platform to ensure that your ebook file is easy to download and DRM protected. Available copies are also limited. This safeguards against any possibility of rampant downloads.
  • Download links to Read & Review Club books appear NOWHERE on the public internet.
  • Reader/reviewers may post reviews within 90 days of download, at any place where your book is listed in any format.

The safety of your book, and gathering reviews for your book, are our highest priorities.
