NEW FEATURE - Free/Discount Book of the Day!

Starting March 1st, each day we will announce via email a book that is either FREE or on a temporary sale at a great discount price. These are not going to be your average free books. They will be incredible deals on well-rated books. You do not even have to read the books during the promotion; you can download them while they are free and read them at some later date. Sign up so you do not miss the opportunity to build up your library with premium books for free.



Sorry, this proves you are human.

Strict Anti-Spam Rules: Important for authors and publishers

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

If you have a question or problem regarding the review team system, whether as author or a reviewer, please use the private contact forum.

I am not an author, but I hope to be one day soon. I've read the rules and it is well understood. We all need such guidelines otherwise this forum could easily become a store!

Hi, I have had my account for a few days now (definitely more than three) and still cannot edit my information. What should I do?

It wasn't three days at the time of your post. It has been now. Can you try again?

Hello, I am a new member and this is the first time I seen restrictions like this and I actually love it. Everytime I go to some forum you wonder about the post and everyone posting. This makes me feel better about my membership with your site. Thanks for that.

Hey,

Sorry to trouble you. I just finished uploading my book Silver Knight for review. During the process, I noticed a request link to plug in the ISBN. However, once I finished uploading, I could not seem to navigate back to the screen with the link. Can you help me out?

Thanks,
Caron

The link should have been emailed to you when you first submitted/activated your review request.

Hello Scott,
Thanks for these guidelines. On the quick reply page and below it says publishers cannot make a post about their own book, but on this page states you cannot post a link to the book. I do not wish to post a link to the book but would simply like to respond to comment made by the reviewer. Specifically one line was not printed in the book and I would like to let readers of the review know that this is has been corrected. Is a reply from a publisher permitted?

Thanks in advance for your response and for making this terrific site available.

Thanks,
Gillian

So excited to find your site, Scott. As a fledgling author I'm thrilled to post my book for a review. But imagine the 20 year timeline it took to get my book into print, to try to make it perfect, to find this site where a review could start the whole snowball rolling, to upload the book, add the description and the author's bio from my E-store, to reread what I had uploaded and discover ...... OH NO!!!! I left out one word in the author's bio, the simple word "THE."
MORTIFIED
....and right when I'm talking about how my parents read to me and I learned to "listen to flow of words."
How can I make such a dumb mistake.
I've been demoralized all day long thinking, "No one will want to read my book now."
What a dufus...
Oh well. Love this site though. Thanks for this wonderful gift to the writers and readers of our world.

Hi there Scott, I am a new member and not sure I understand everything fully as yet. Do I wait 3 days then review a book I'm currently reading. Then I'm allowed to select a book from the list and review it? Please advise. Thanks
