FAQ: The book is not released yet so I can't review

That's perfectly fine! Booksprout will send you an email when the book is live and ready for you to review.

In some cases, the author may have already published it on external websites such as Amazon, but they haven't yet told Booksprout where to find it. Until they do, you won't be able to complete your review. Not to worry though, nothing bad will happen to your account because of this. 

The book is already published

If the author has already published the book but has not yet provided Booksprout with the link(s) to it on external websites such as Amazon, you may wish to contact them to kindly ask that they update their book within Booksprout. Once they add the links to those external websites you'll be able to complete your ARC review.

    The books I’ve read aren’t out yet on amazon or BookBub so I can’t leave I honestly expected to keep watch for when they are available so I can log into 2 separate sites, leave reviews, copy links and post it to Booksprout for this to be considered accomplished?

    I’ve already reviewed 2 books in my account, but neither one of them have links to seller pages, and when I go to Amazon, the book is there, but since it’s not available for sale, I can’t put in a review. In the meantime, Booksprout says I can’t get anymore Arc’s until I’ve reviewed the books I’ve already reviewed. I don’t understand how to proceed.

    I am new at Booksprout, I do not understand how this works. The website is asking me to review a book that I have not read. The author sent a link to the book, but after joining Booksprout I am not able to do anything with the link she sent me.

    Can you help with this please.
