Okay, so you've downloaded an ARC from one of your favorite authors via Booksprout and are now stuck, wondering how you get our system to recognize the fact that you've actually completed your reviews!
In order for that to happen, there's a few things you'll need to do.
- Write a review on Booksprout
- Write a review on all websites that are required by the author
- Prove to Booksprout that you've done all required reviews.
Go to the ARC's page on Booksprout
To write a review on Booksprout, you'll need to head back to the ARC on our website. Make sure you're logged in. If you're not sure if you are or not, head to our login page. If you're asked to login, please do.
You can get the link to the ARC either in an email we've sent you or by viewing your promised ARCs on our website and clicking on the cover of the book you want to review.
Write your review on Booksprout
To get to our review section, you'll need to click on the third circle near the top.
Once there, you should see a form where you can either write your review or cancel your promise to do so. Fill out that form with your review and click "Save" at the bottom.
Write your review on external websites
Once your review is saved on Booksprout, you'll need to copy it over to all of the external websites that the author requires.
Click on the fourth circle near the top to get to the screen where you can do this.
Scroll down and you should see a form you'll need to fill out to prove that you've left your review on all required websites. Any website that's marked with a red "Required" marking means the author is requiring you to review on that website in order for your ARC to be considered complete.
Note: In the above screenshot, Amazon is marked as required and Goodreads is optional.
Prove you've left your reviews
Booksprout helps authors spend less time monitoring their ARC team and more time writing. To help with this, we ask that every reviewer provide a link to their review on all required external websites. This way, the author can quickly and easily check if you've completed the ARC.
