How to cancel a promised review

If you find yourself needing to cancel a review promise rather than complete it, you can follow these steps to let the author know why.

Keep in mind that a late review is better than a cancelled one and too high of a cancellation rate can result in you not being able to attain new ARCs. Use this feature sparingly.

Here's how to cancel your promise

You can cancel your review promise for an ARC on the same page you'd leave a review for it. Head to the ARC on Booksprout and click on step 3.

Once there, you should see two tabs below. Click on the "Cancel ARC Promise" tab.

Fill out the form. Once all the information is filled in, click the red "Cancel ARC Promise" button and we'll pass that information on to the author.

    Amazon is preventing us from reading books just because they happened to ban us from writing reviews there, God knows why! I would like some authors would take that into consideration and mark the book complete after having taken the time to read it.

    It's a shame when I read and post on site's author has listed but they won't mark arc completed because review is Not posted on  Amazon. So I need to know how to cancel an arc with links to optional sites but not on Amazon?.
