Reviewer Terms and Conditions
Please read the following terms and conditions carefully. You will need to agree to them to become part of the Readers' Favorite Team. Thank you for your interest in becoming a Readers' Favorite Reviewer!
Ownership of ReviewsYou retain complete ownership of your reviews. By agreeing to review for us, you grant ReadersFavorite.com a nonexclusive, royalty-free and perpetual license to publish, reproduce and sublicense the review in any media or on any website. When you post your review in any media, you agree to give us credit in the review as "Reviewed for Readers' Favorite." When we post your review on other websites, we will include your name to give you proper credit for the review: "Reviewed by [YOUR NAME] for Readers' Favorite."
Creating Quality Reviews
We require that you have good writing skills, not only so you can produce informative reviews, but so that you can recognize the quality of the work you are reviewing. In addition, you need to be willing to review electronic versions of author submissions. 80% of our review submissions come in digital format.
We will cover the cost of shipping all physical books to you. However, we can only ship to US residents. International reviewers will only be able to choose from our digital books.
You will be able to login and view all the available books with descriptions from the authors and select the ones you are interested in. You can then immediately download the electronic version of the book (if available), or we will mail you the books at our expense. You will be required to complete your review within 2-3 weeks of receipt of the material. If you are unable to complete the review in that time you will need to mail the book back to us at your expense.
The review should be at least 250 words with one paragraph summarizing the plot and a second paragraph containing your opinion of the work. Above all else your review should be your honest opinion of the work. You will be able to post your reviews online at your convenience using our online Review Submission Form.
Zero Tolerance for Plagiarism or Skimming
We do not use quotas or put unfair time restraints on you as a reviewer, nor do we assign you books to review. We only ask that you read and review books you choose within 2-3 weeks. If you need more time, we will gladly give it to you. It is NEVER okay to skim a book or copy parts of other reviews to complete your review.
You are offering to be a reviewer because you enjoy reading and helping authors, and neither of these purposes are satisfied if you cheat yourself, us, and the author by providing anything less than an honest review after a complete reading of their book.
Zero tolerance means that we cannot and will not give second chances when it comes to a violation of this policy, and will immediately terminate you as a reviewer if we determine that you have abused our authors' trust.
Biography You will need to submit a short biography and picture for us to post on our site. If you prefer not to send a picture, we can use a picture of one of your favorite authors.
