How many people are there at The Fussy Librarian? Four.
How long does it take to approve my book? Less than 24 hours, most of the time.
How many subscribers are in each genre? You can find that data, as well as the prices, on this page.
What does my fee get me? Inclusion in the daily email once plus a mention on our website.
What vendors do you include links for? Our bargain newsletter has links to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Smashwords, Google Play, and Kobo. Our free newsletter has links to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple, Kobo, Google Play, and sites like Book Funnel. We do not recommend promoting an ebook if it does not have a link to Amazon.
Can I run my book again? Yes.
Explain to me the review requirements. For a number of years, we required a minimum number of reviews. But we've found that for new authors in particular in can be hard to get reviews, so we're going to waive that requirement. We reserve the right to not accept books that lack a quality cover or where reviews indicate there are quality issues.
What about new releases and preorders? We accept both.
Do you accept box sets? Yes.
How many books will I sell? Every book is different, we've found over the years. We don't make predictions and we don't offer a guarantee. We recommend starting out with one book, in one genre, to see if you're a good fit for our mailing list.
What's your policy on subtitles? We view the stuff in large type as the title your book. And we'll include subtitles if there's room. (That said, please don't ask us to run a subtitle with 20 words in it.)
Will I receive a copy of the newsletter with my book in it? Only if you're subscribed to the newsletter — it's not automatically sent to you.
Do you have a guide for choosing my book's content ratings for the bargain newsletter? Yes; check out our guidelines for describing the language, violence, and sexual content of your book. And feel free to send us an email with further info if you're struggling to settle on a rating.
Should I contact you via the contact form on the website or a different email? You can use the contact form or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. They both go into the same inbox.
