There is no better way to get reviews than send a review copy to your friends or influencers directly from iBooks, Kobo or Google Play Books. Please contact us via email to request review copies.
There are currently the following ways of sending review copies: through iBooks, Kobo, or Google Play Books. Other stores don't support review copies at the moment.
Redeem code for iBooks
We can request a redeem code on your behalf from iBooks. The redeem code may be used within 4 weeks (28 days) 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 :)
Timeline: it takes up to 24 hours to receive a code.
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.
The reviewers might receive a notification once the review copy was sent. The book will be available in their Google Play Books account to download 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.
Timeline: it takes up to 24 hours to receive a review copy.
Redeem code for Kobo
We can request a redeem code on your behalf from Kobo. The redeem code may be used within 4 weeks (28 days) from the day it has been issued. You have to specify the reviewer's territory in advance. The review code can only be used in the territory it was requested for.
We send you the code directly which then you can forward to the reviewer.
The reviewer must have a Kobo account to use the review code. The book won't "expire": it'll be available in the reviewer's account forever.
Timeline: it takes up to 7 days to receive a code.
