If Publisher gives away free or promotional DRM protected review copies of ebooks for marketing, author giveaways or reviews, there will be no charge for redemption/promo codes. Please contact us via email to request review copies.
There are currently two ways of sending review copies: either through iBooks, or through Google Play Books.
I. Redeem code for iBooks
We can request a redeem code on your behalf from iBooks. The redeem code may be used within 4 weeks from the day it has been issued. We send you the code directly which then you can forward to the reviewer.
They have to follow these steps to redeem the code:
1. Check whether you have iTunes installed. If not, you can download it from here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
2. Login with your iTunes account (or register).
3. Open the iTunes software. You find 'Redeem' under your account.
4. Just enter the code here – and enjoy your book :)
II. Directly to Google Play Books
If you give us the Gmail address of the reviewer, we can automatically send them a copy through Google Play Books. They will receive a notification, open it in Google Play Books and read.
The copies come with DRM protection, meaning that they can only be read by the reviewer. The review copy is not a loan: it will be theirs to keep and will not disappear from their accounts.
