Your Most Frequent Questions Answered

Will you publish my review if isn’t good?

  • We never publish bad reviews. Our reviewers have a tremendous depth of experience and know there are many facets to a book that will create a negative reading experience. These include structure, vocabulary, plot and formatting to name a few. When our reviewers come across a title they feel will not garner a positive review they will stop reading it and tell us why. When this is the case we will give you an immediate refund. We don’t see the value in giving valuable site space to a bad review or promoting a book our readers most likely won’t want to read.

Is my review automatically spotlighted. And what happens once my book has been reviewed?

  • After reading your review, our reviewer will return it to us with their notes for copywriting. Our copywriter will write your review and it will be added to your author spotlight page along with your book cover and social media links. You will receive an email from us confirming your spotlight page and review are live and will be actively promoted across social media. Don’t worry about a negative review. If you didn’t make it this far we will have returned your money.

Who reviews my book?

  • Our author services team will match your book with a reviewer we consider to be an expert in your genre. We work with a small team of established reviewers who meet our stringent review standards. A BookViral reviewer must be able to objectively review style and content specific to the genre in which they are reviewing.

Am I paying for a positive review?

  • No, certainly not! Whilst we will never publish a negative review our reviews do vary in tone an tenor. We do however believe that giving a book a one to five-star rating is demeaning because every review is subjective. Our reviewers are industry professionals and will give their unbiased view based upon the quality of your writing and the aspects of your book they particularly enjoyed.

How much of your review will include my books summary?  

  • A strong summary – often referred to as blurb – is an essential element of a books marketing and we always include your book’s summary on your spotlight page. We do not include it in our review which appears under a separate heading on your spotlight page. Our reviewer might refer to elements of your summary but in all other aspects, your BookViral review will be a constructive critique written to help readers decide if your book is one they might want to read.

How soon will I receive my BookViral review?

  • At BookViral we don’t believe authors should have to wait 6 – 8 weeks for a review. Time is precious and the publishing industry is highly competitive. It is a point of pride that we never take longer than 14 working days to review a book though we make exceptions for those bordering on the length of War and Peace! With over 8000 reviews we have never failed to deliver one on time. The clock starts ticking when we receive your submission and a copy of your book. We will send you an automatic email to confirm receipt of your order but thereafter all communications will be with our Author Services Manager.

Can I pay by cheque or bank transfer?

  • Unfortunately not. All payments are processed through our payment provider with the option of paying with your credit card or through PayPal. Because we work to very short turnaround times on our reviews we have decided to only accept online payments to ensure the process is not delayed.

I was over the moon with my BookViral review and would like to submit another book. Can I have the same reviewer read it?

  • Yes, this is our preferred approach. By using the same reviewer they develop an appreciation of your particular style of writing. More importantly for a series, they develop an affinity with your characters and an in-depth understanding of overarching plot structure.

Do you offer discounts for multiple submissions?

  • We have a tiered discount price structure in addition to a generous loyalty scheme for returning authors. Authors often place all their books with us for review and it’s their continued trust in us to deliver professional unbiased reviews that have made us the review partner for thousands of authors around the world.

The BookViral Guarantee

As an author, you have invested your heart and soul in writing your novel but that’s just the start of an awfully big adventure. No one can predict the next bestseller but we do know that great reviews help sell books.

In an increasingly competitive industry where it’s often hard to get insightful reviews in a short period of time, more and more authors are turning to established professional review companies to give them that all important competitive advantage. However, with the exception of BookViral, none of the top review sites offers you a guarantee. You simply pay your money, sometimes as much as $500, and hope you get a good review. If it’s a bad one you might have the choice of asking the reviewer not to post it on their site but either way, you have paid your money and there is no refund. At BookViral we believe this is fundamentally wrong.

An author should never have to pay for a bad review of their work. If upon reading your book we feel we are unable to give it a positive review which we are happy to promote on our site and across our social media platforms we will give you a full refund.

Let’s be absolutely clear though, you are not paying for a good review. That’s not how we work but occasionally our reviewers find significant formatting issues or a story that simply loses its way. When this happens we will give you honest feedback and wish you the very best going forward but we will never print a negative review. 

Our readers come to us because we take the time to select and review great books and that’s what we review and showcase. You have come as far as this page because you feel confident your book has a place with BookViral but it’s always nice to know you have a guarantee.
