    Greetings! And apologies for missing your first post about your service which you are welcome to promote here in the Writers' Cafe.

    Now that you have an official thread, you'll want to add your listing to our Yellow Pages, found here: https://www.kboards.com/yp/. The listing is free to KB members and is completely self-service; you can add and edit your listing from the page. More information on our Yellow Pages listing can be found here.

    In your thread here, we ask that the same basic rules be followed as we have for authors in the Book Bazaar: you may have this one thread about your service and must post to it rather than start a new thread each time. New threads about the service will be removed. Please bookmark this thread so that you can find it again when you want to post. You may not make back-to-back posts to the thread within seven days. If someone responds (as I'm doing with this post), you may reply to them, but otherwise you must wait seven days. Any pattern of posting designed to artificially bump your thread to the top of the forum is prohibited. Please note that very short or (one- or two-word) posts with no meaningful information are discouraged and may be deleted at the moderators' discretion. Lastly, your posts and images will need to meet our "forum decorum" guidelines, which is the case for every member.

    You may find that members ask searching questions -- about how your service works, for example, or what they will get for their money, or whether your service adheres to Amazon's terms of service. Such "vetting" is a common here.

    Note that members are allowed to provide civil and honest feedback about your service in this thread. This feedback may include criticisms as well as kudos. You may respond to criticism in a civil manner, but name-calling, badgering, accusations of lying, and other breaches of forum decorum can lead to loss of vendor posting privileges.

    Any and all disputes between you and your clients should be handled off-site.

    Thanks,
    KBoards Moderator Team

    (Note that this welcome does not constitute an endorsement or vetting of a service by KBoards. Members should do due diligence when considering using a service.)

    Well, I'm in there. Filled out the tiny app form. Had no idea what was meant by "package." I just included the different e-pub versions I have. Also, the app is white on a black background--very hard to read. At least it came through that way for me. Thanks for the tip.

    I filled out the form a week or two ago, but heard nothing back. Did my submission go through or not?

    For me too, the Order Form appears as black boxes and the white print inside on the black background is very hard to read.

    I've filled out the form, not sure if there was an option to attach the files to the order or if I need to send them separately?

    Any thoughts on the implications of offering a book "free" to readers through a service like this if that title is also in KU?  Seems like that would make the 'zon angry.

    Hey for further reassurance...

    Important Note on Amazon’s Terms of Service: “Book authors and publishers may continue to provide free or discounted copies of their books to readers, as long as the author or publisher does not require a review in exchange or attempt to influence the review.”

    Yay! And one of them is my book. :) So far the service has been very easy to use. I have gotten three or four emails from people requesting the book, and I just send them whatever format they want, easy peasy. Thanks for putting this together and letting us try it for free!

    I haven't received a review request yet and I'm wondering if I'm contact information or something. clicking on the book goes directly to Amazon where they would have to purchase it. But I want to be able to send them a free copy in any format they want.

    What Have I don't wrong? I also think I don't show up in the recent releases section

    I could use some guidance here. I feel invisible there.

    Is it acceptable to send potential reviewers to a Book Funnel giveaway page where they can enter their email and then download onto their preferred device... or would that be considered an annoyance/hinderance for them to enter their email address as a prerequisite? (I understand the email entry request can be disabled, just wondering if it needs to be?).

    Also, where it says Book Description/Link on the order form; is that where the Book Funnel link would go?

    Thanks.

    Ah, I'm so sorry to hear that you're feeling invisible. The site is still new and growing, so it's only that reviewers haven't requested it yet. As for the link to amazon, its to further encourage them to request for review. They can see previous reviews you've received an also see the description. Once you get a request, I will let you know immediately.

    Since you will be responsible for distributing the book to the readers, however you can get it to them is ultimately your choice. They are aware of that so it shouldn't pose as an annoyance.

    Vibe Reviews is now open to take book review requests! As of right now, only the free option is available since the reviewers list is still filling up! Once everyone is ready to go, the paid options will be available where you will pay for the requests to be sent out. All reviews are meant to be honest and no one is guaranteed a review!

    If you would like to have your book posted to the site OR you would like to become a reviewer, the links are below!

    Just thought I'd share, that Destiny posted my book to her site the same evening I applied and I had a request from a reviewer within the first 48 hours for my middle grade novel. I was pleasantly surprised, as I thought it would prove difficult to find someone interested in reading a middle grade novel.

    P.S. Destiny is awesome to work with. I swear she posted my book to her site at midnight!
