How many people are there at The Fussy Librarian? Two. 

Is this your full-time job? Since November 2014, yes.

When do you approve the books? Morning through evening, usually ending by 8 or 9 p.m. central time.

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.

Do you mind if I forward the author email to a friend? No, not at all.

What does my fee get me? Inclusion in the daily email once plus a spot in our online database for 30 days.

Will there ever be a log-in system so I can update and re-submit a book that's already run? Yes, we added that in July 2015.

What vendors do you include links for? Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Smashwords, Google Play, and Kobo.

Can I run my book again? Yes, you can submit the same title once every 30 days.

Explain to me the review requirements. You need to have at least one book with 10 reviews from Amazon. If you've got 10 to 19 reviews, the average rating must be 4.0; if you have more than 20 reviews, the average can be 3.5 (to account for how having an abundance of reviews can sometimes drag your average down). It doesn't have to be the book you want to promote.

What about new releases? We accept them if you have a previous book with 10 reviews and a 4.0 rating.

Do you accept box sets? Yes, as long as one of the authors in the set has a book that meets our requirements.

Can I round up my average rating? No. Leave it alone. Precision is a good thing. 4.8 is nothing to be ashamed about.

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 They both go into the same inbox.

Who is The Fussy Librarian? I could tell you, but then I'd have to ... well, you know.
