Read to Review


Awesome Indies Book Awards invites you to join our Read to Review program. If you sign up, once per month we will email you details of the Awesome Indies approved books that are up for review. You then have until the end of the month to let us know if you would like to read any of them. The author will then send you the book in whatever file suits your ereader.

In return for this free read, you agree to:

Post a review on the Awesome Indies Book Awards website, Amazon, and on one other review site (eg your blog, B&N, Kobo, or Goodreads) within two to three months of receiving of the book.
The review should be a minimum of 100 words and must include the following sentence at the end:

I received this book free from Awesome Indies Book Awards in return for an honest review.

When you have completed the review, send an email to the administrator and include the links to your review on the three sites. If for some reason you didn’t finish the book or don’t feel you can review it for any other reason, then please let us know why. If after three months you don’t leave a review and we do not hear from you, we will remove you from the reviewers list.
All the books offered for review have already received Awesome Indies approval or Awesome Indies Book Awards approval. Though you may not like a book, we can guarantee they’ll be well-written and edited.
