Thank you for taking the time to consider entering your book into our directory. If you are an author who is new to the site, please read the information below before submitting your book. Once you submit the form, your information will be reviewed and an author account will be created for you. Information on how to edit your information on this site will be sent to you along with your account information.
(Please note that we are currently undergoing some major changes on the site, so it may take a few days for us to get your book reviewed and your account created.)
Before you begin, we’d like to offer some information up front that will help make this go as smoothly as possible and hopefully answer some of your questions. Please take the time to read this carefully, and as you complete the form, please remember that this site is first and foremost about the Readers. If you try to mislead them by misrepresenting your book, then all you will accomplish is ultimately alienating them. We want our recommendations to match their desires as closely as possible, so please be honest with your responses.
The first two questions involve the Genre and Sub-Genre of your book. While we realize that there are more and more books these days that may incorporate various components of multiple genres, we ask that you focus on the ones that are absolutely the most relevant to your book. If your book has some Romance, Mystery, Science Fiction, and Fantasy, then you will need to choose the one that is most representative. You can choose any one of the others as a Sub-Genre to indicate which one best supports your book. Keep in mind that while you might want to expand your reader base to get as many people as possible, someone looking for a Romance novel may not appreciate you considering your book to be a Romance just because there is one kiss near the end!
The next two questions involve Story Elements. We would first of all request that you choose the one single story element that is most relevant to your book. We then allow you to choose up to three supporting elements. Our early testing has shown that trying to do more only dilutes the recommendations that our readers receive. We want to make sure that the recommendations that we make encourage them to come back for more recommendations, so please make sure that your selections accurately represent your book. We realize it may seem tedious, but the more accurate you are, the better the odds that we can match your book with a reader!
The last important point is the need for a smaller image. While you may have a copy of your book cover in 1200×1800 pixels that shows it in all its glorious wonder, we need a much smaller image, more specifically, one that is about 200×300 pixels. This size is consistent with the size of the images used by the major retailers, and while they may have the storage capacity and ability to convert the size of your images, we sadly do not. If the site becomes successful enough that we can add such resources, then we may be able to change this policy.
Please use the Comment form at the bottom of the page or the one on the form itself if you would like to provide any input or give us any feedback. Thanks!
