This is a general group. In joining this group you have agreed TO REVIEW ANY four ALLOCATED novellas (under 45,000 words) within the set 8 week limit. You will receive four reviews.
There is no genre filtering.

If you are only willing to review your own preferred genres then sorry, but you’re better off finding a group that specialises in your preference, or joining one of the 18+ rounds or a ‘clean’ review round. In this general group you might be asked to review fiction/non-fiction, adults’/children’s books, a religious text, BDSM, or anything in between. Allocation is entirely random and there will NOT be any rearranging of the listing to accommodate genre preference. The ONLY circumstance in which you may duck out of giving a review is if YOU provide a stand-in reviewer.

Let’s be honest here – we don’t all like the same things but we all want reviews. Please consider each book as an example of its genre and length. A novella or short story is not going to have the same length/complexity of story/character arc as a full length novel. The only way this group can function is if we trust each other to behave honourably. And it IS perfectly possible to give a fair-minded review of a text that does not coincide with our normal choice of reading matter. If you need a few hints/tips, please see this thread:
https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Do not sign up until you have completed all your reviews in another review round in the group.

Make sure you have an author profile set up before you join and that your book is available for sale on amazon (not pre-0rder).

Please let me know as you sign up if you have been reviewed by, or have reviewed another author in the group. It is permissible to review an author more than once if a different book is available, but reciprocal reviews within the group are strictly prohibited.


Your group moderator will be

L.N. Denison | 1009 comments I know it's a bit cheeky, but....can I do two rounds?


message 3: by Emma, Group Admin (new)

Emma Jaye | 4071 comments Mod
Not unless you've posted all your reviews for the other round. When you've posted them, you can join this one.

Picture me chasing an overly keen author back to their other group with a broom. Shoo!

NB We have quite a few mods now, so I don't suppose they'll be a long wait for any general or novella groups now.

message 5: by Darrell (new)

Darrell Nelson | 345 comments You didn't think you could have a novella round without me, did you?
Once again, I'll add A Connecticut Nympho on King Arthur's Crotch by my pen name A. Nympho to the mix.

Links please Steven.


And yes, what a daft idea, a novella round without you Darrell.

Has he reviewed this one Carly?

Darrell has reviewed me.

Is it just me, or did that sound dirty.
This is turning into a pen name round.

Are you sure your book is under 45,000 words Jeanne?

On July 12th, I assured you that The Red Claw by Jeanne Foguth The Red Claw is under 45,000 words, but it is not listed. Is there a problem?


message 18: by Emma, Group Admin (new)

Emma Jaye | 4071 comments Mod
Sorry Jeanne, I just signed you up to group 111, the rule is only one group at a time. You can join another as group as soon as you have completed your four reviews, you don't have to wait until the group officially ends.
Would you like to keep your place in this group, or in 111?


message 19: by Jeanne (new)

Jeanne Foguth (jeannefoguth) | 44 comments No problem, Emma! I checked to see if I was on 11's list, and didn't see my name, so wasn't sure if Red Claw had been accepted or not. Prefer the novella group since Xander's series is the most popular one.


message 20: by Heather (new)

Heather Hayden Hi Emma! Sorry, I missed the 45K maximum--I'm used to the novella definition of anything under 60K, and while Augment's only 54K, it's definitely longer than your limit. I'll have to back out. :)


message 21: by Emma, Group Admin (new)

Emma Jaye | 4071 comments Mod
OK Heather.
According to the great god Wikipedia, the 45,000 definition is actually a little on the generous side.

I could review an arc of a work called Zombie Cat which is not an ebook yet. But is listed as a physical book on Amazon, it is for children.

Both of those authors have other books you can review. Welcome aboard again Mary.


message 24: by Darrell (new)

Darrell Nelson | 345 comments I'm always wanting reviews for Showgirls and Aliens under my real name. You can review that instead.
If you don't mind taking another ride on the crazy train.

A.J. Culey (ajculey) | 22 comments I would like to participate with my YA novella, The Trouble with Antlers (a.k.a. Melvin's Rampant Rack): Season 1, Episode 1

Julia has been assigned to review this novella on a different forum, but I think that's the only conflict currently. Thanks!

John Mathews (johnmathews) | 6 comments This looks good, I would like to participate. I have one novella available for review....and I prefer paid downloads with reviews here and on Amazon. Of course, I will return the favor for other authors. Thanks!

Authors have to be able to provide free review copies. This is a non-reciprocal arrangement, the people who you review, will not be on your review list.
Some members review via KU, which does not provide a 'verified' review, but if you wish to gift copies to your reviewers, that is your prerogative.
I need your book's goodreads link to include it.

Hi A.J. as you have other books, there's a possibility that Julia will be asked to review another book of yours. I hope that's ok.

Himanshu has decided to work on his book a little more before joining a round.

Come on folks, there have got to be a few more novella's out there!


message 39: by Neil (new)

Neil Carstairs | 670 comments As we're getting close to filling this group can I ask that all authors check they are set to receive private messages. This can be accessed through your account settings. We encourage using the PM system for authors to exchange email addresses when sending and receiving books. If an email address is posted on a thread it can be viewed by anyone, including non-members of the group and automated spammers. You can switch the facility off once all books have been sent and received.

Thanks for you help.


message 40: by Lynn (new)

Lynn Sheridan (lynnsheridan) | 28 comments Hi,

If you are desperate I would happily join the group with my novella, Valiant, Vol. 1 - Damsel in Distress.

It has been reviewed by Darrell (A. Nympho) and I have reviewed another of Stacie's books.

Author page: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Thanks

Lynn

Darrell Nelson | 345 comments Nice to see you again, Lynn.
Until now I never even thought that I might be referred to as: Darrell (A. Nympho) I'm just glad you used parenthesis rather than commas.

Roxana had signed up for more than one group, we're just waiting for her to pick one, and if its this one, we'll get going.

If i have to pick only one group, then yes, I will pick this one but I'd like to change the book to Double-Edged:

that's fine, as long as it is under 45,000 words.

I'll get the order set up ASAP.

I see that my name is in the General Group not in this one and that's fine. However, I understand that this group needs only one member and can start on reviews while the other still needs five. I am pretty sure I can finish at least a review until the other group is on and going. Of course, is up to you, Emma. Let me know.
Thanks,

Roxana/Rowena

Sorry J.M. Roxana just pipped you to the post. We have a general group open if you want to move over to that one.
