What to Expect

What to expect after submitting your book via email/submission form:

  • A Confirmation Email
    • Within 24 hours, I’ll send you an email accepting (or denying, which happens rarely) your submission and letting you know when I’ll get started on it. If you don’t receive one, please resend your message.
    • Do NOT email/message me afterward reminding me to review your book or asking where your book review is. I will email you once I have posted/submitted all reviews.
    • You may continue to message me to address other questions/concerns.
  • Goodreads, Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble Reviews
    • If your work is not available on one of these sites, you will not receive a review there.
    • If you have not set up your author page on Goodreads or have not added your book to their system, I suggest doing so before emailing me so you can receive that review.
    • All these reviews will say the same thing and will be posted at the same time. However, some of these sites have processing periods so it may take longer for you to see the review on their site.
      • Goodreads- no processing; review will show instantly
      • Amazon- up to 3 days processing time
      • Barnes & Noble- about 2 days processing time
      • Smashwords- 1-2 days processing time
  • baphy1428.com Review
    • The review on my site is most often the last to be posted since I schedule no more than 1 book review a day here.
    • You can look at past book reviews to see an example of what your review will look like.
    • For novels, this review is usually longer than the review posted elsewhere.
  • Tweets
    • I try to schedule 3 tweets per book that I review, but sometimes only manage 2. The first 2 are a #reading tweet and a just finished tweet. Both will tag you, link your book on Amazon, and hashtag a relevant genre. The third tweet will share my full #bookreview from baphy1428.com.
    • I only schedule up to 2 tweets per day and only 1 tweet per book per day. This is to help maximize engagement on both your book and my profile. This means reviews may come out well before I actually start tweeting about your work.
  • Facebook & Instagram
    • I will schedule 1 post per site for your work linking to baphy1428.com review. Whether you have a page on these sites or not, I will still make these posts.
  • Return Email
    • I will email you back when I have finished and submitted your reviews.
    • I may not have the time to tell you when my social media posts are scheduled so be on the lookout for tags from @baphy1428 after I’ve let you know I’ve finished with your submission.
