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.

HELP!

Hi everybody,

I clicked on the “get your book reviewed” button to see what the following steps would be without the intention of publishing my book here just yet. In other words, i was just curious. So I registered my email and the website redirected me to a form where i needed to insert further details of my book.
Now, because of this terrible mistake, it seems like I cannot enter the Review Team anymore, as authors are not allowed to write reviews.

Is there a way to go back to my status of humble book reviewer or am I going to be banished forever?

Thank you in advance! Much appreciated :tiphat:

Go to the contact form and click on "I am not an author" and it should remove you from the author group.

If that doesn't allow you back into the Review Team, post again here, or send a message via the contact form to let us know. :tiphat:
Like the mynah, the ignorant repeat that which they do not understand, merely because someone else said it first.
