How Our Book Review Service Works

Upload a Book
The first step is for the author to upload their book and choose how many reviews they would like to receive. This process asks for their ASIN/ISBN, a copy of their manuscript in PDF format, their email address, and form of payment. This is all that will be asked of the author, our review team does all of the rest of the work of setting up their reviews for them as soon as this form is submitted.
Review Team
Our proprietary system gets all of the information from your book sales pages online and prepares your book review listing. Your cover image, book blurb, and other details are handled for you. We also summarize your book, prepare questions to ask reviewers about your book, and notify our readers that another great book is ready for them to read. We also make sure your book is secured by our technology to keep it as safe as possible throughout the review process.
Readers Apply
Once the review team is done preparing your book review listing, then our team of several hundred paid readers will start applying to read your book and give you a review. This generally happens within hours of submitting your book. Every time a reader requests a copy of your book you receive an email. If you want to manually approve reviewers you can or you can let the system do all of the work for you. That is a setting you can manage.
Review Completed
Once the reviewer has read the book they will answer questions about your book and submit their review. They are also required to post the review somewhere that it is allowed (Goodreads, FaceBook, X, or another social site). Our team reviews everything and notifies you that your review is ready for you to use however you see fit. This whole process is usually complete in 30 days but we allow up to 45 days for each reviewer to complete their work.

How We Help Authors Grow Their Author Platforms

Here is a 60 second video that will walk you through the basics. We know you are short on time and we want to get straight to the point so you can see how eBookFairs uses book fairs to get real results for authors from every book fair. If you sign up and stay active, you will build your fanbase and that gives you the opportunities you need to sell more books. The other important way to win is to share eBookFairs with your friends.
Create a Fair
The first step in the process is for an author to create a fair in our system. This should be relevant to one and only one of your own books. You then will wait for other authors to see your fair and submit their books or you can also reach out to them using our author contact search and ask them externally if they want to join your fair. You control how many books are in your fair (up to 50) and you can change that right up to when the fair is set to launch. Worried about getting authors to submit? Our team and system will assist you as needed with making requests to authors (we cannot know if they will choose to participate or not).
Fair is Analyzed
Once submissions start coming in to your fair it's up to you to review them and to decide whether to remove them or not. It's important to do that frequently as each submission will take up a slot until you clear it. We will send you a reminder three days before the fair to finalize your books. It's important to do that because whatever is in the list when the fair is published is indeed final.
Fair is Held
We provide a custom, sharable author link for the fair and notify every member author involved in the fair that it is time for them to share their custom link on their social media or author platform. We then analyze the traffic coming in from those links as well as having our team spot check the traffic to make sure it is within our policies. We provide visibility to each author on how their specific link is doing in their profile and we also provide an overall number right on the main page of the fair.
Fair is Locked
Once we have published the fair it is considered locked and is not changeable even by the owner of the fair. The reason this is the case is all of the authors in the fair have been notified and started doing their work so it would be unfair to allow any changes after the publish date. We also tally the overall score for the fair to see how well it went. The fair listing is permanent so no need to worry about the links disappearing. You can safely share them everywhere and know they will work for years to come. However, we count votes from the first week of the fair to determine winners to feature.
Fair is Over
As soon as the fair is completed, several things happen. The first is that an email is sent to each author that had a book in the fair telling them how many votes their book received and whether they place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. We provide a nice award that you can share. In addition any giveaway entries that were submitted are made available for authors to download the contacts and use them in their mailing list. If you have MailChimp or Mailerlite the email information will automatically flow into your account.
