I'm Steve DeWinter, the founder of Book-Rover™.
I'm always on the lookout for great books and reading reviews is one of the best ways to know if I might like a book before I buy it. That's why I started a service that is a lot more economical and secure than the other options out there and still gives you choices.
Even better, there are no set-up fees and no long-term commitments. List when you are ready and take it down when you are done, but I highly recommend listing for a minimum of four months prior to the release date and even a couple months after to take full advantage of the wave of excitement around your latest release.
The best thing yet? You maintain control over your book's availability to be read for free. You decide how long it is available, and when you cancel your listing, it is no longer available. No one will be able to download/save it for later or copy/share it on the internet.
Here's how it works:
#1: Fill out the form and choose your plan.
#2: Submit your book files.
#3: Send book reviewers to Book-Rover.com where they can sign up for FREE to read your books for review.
After you register your book, we will contact you to obtain the cover (5MB max in JPG or PNG), the description, and the book file in the EPUB format (which we will convert for FREE to our secure streaming format).
You have 3 options to choose from:
OPTION 1 - Individual Titles for $49/mo.
>>> List your Advance Reader Copy for reviewers.
OPTION 2 - Individual Titles for $39/mo.
>>> List your already published book for reviewers.
OPTION 3 - Individual Titles for $29/mo. (volume price with valid CODE)
>>> Publishers, Author Collectives, or even PR Firms can activate a Volume Listing Plan for $50/mo. ($500/yr. with 10% Discount for Annual Plan) to receive a CODE that lets them list each Advance Reader Copy or already published book at the volume listing price (priced to be Indie-Author friendly) with no monthly minimum listing requirements. Click HERE to activate your Volume Listing Plan and receive your CODE.
Are you a Publisher, Author Collective, or PR Firm who plans to list a large number of titles each month? I offer high-volume plans that lower your costs even further. Contact me using the Click to Chat link in the footer of the website to discuss your needs and how I can help you reach your goals within your budget.
