By submitting your book for the Group Read you agree to:
- Provide free copies of your book to those who request it unless stated otherwise. Charging for the copies would likely result in decreased interest.
- Be a good winner/loser, no arguing the decisions of the polls.
- Be contactable when the poll ends so that I can find out how you will disperse the books.
- People who request your book are not required to review it but if you request feedback in the Group Read threads then I'm sure others will comply!
- You must only submit your OWN novel because you must have the means of distributing the books you suggest.
- Please only put forward one of your books per month, it isn't fair otherwise.
- Submissions will REQUIRE an excerpt to give readers a feel of the books.
- ONLY POST YOUR BOOK IN ONE GENRE AND MAKE SURE IT ACTUALLY FITS THAT GENRE!

Let me know if you have any questions.

Are ebooks acceptable?

Absolutely!

Helen Yeomans | 4 comments I'm not sure how this group read thing works, but would my YA novel be a suitable candidate? I'm happy to provide epub or mobi copies at no charge.

Anyone can submit their books provided they can meet the guidelines. Make sure to submit in the June group read thread not here

Pat Anderson | 3 comments I was wondering about supplying copies of a book. Since my books are self-published on Amazon, I have to purchase copies myself to supply to readers. I am only talking about hard copies here; I could easily supply e-books free of charge. How many hard copies, on average, are usually supplied? The reason I ask is because I would find it difficult to afford if the numbers were running into double figures and beyond!

Thanks!

Pat, ebooks are the norm. Stick to those I'd suggest and save the hard copies for reviewers :)

H.R. (hrjakes) | 10 comments When you say "make sure to submit in the June group read thread not here", where do I find that to offer a free book?

The genre specific group read threads will be up tomorrow for submissions. If you don't fit the genres just make a thread of your own for your book and put it in the right folder.

Noorilhuda | 51 comments Emily, h, just a quick thought - a great concept but isn't it slightly limiting in scope - there is no group read for non-fiction, literary fiction, thriller/ suspense, etc. - just a thought!

We vote on different genres each month. We can't possibly cover then all every month!
