Reviews and Beta Readings

Q: How can I request a book review?

A: Provide the required information. Please keep in mind that while this does not guarantee a beta reading, it does increase your chances significantly.

Q: In what format should I send my ebook for review?

A: With the exception of .PDF files, feel free to send your ebook in any format compatible with Kindle, iBooks, or Nook. The problem with .PDFs is that they essentially read like images, which makes the book unreadable without excessive zooming. Having received .PDFs for review, I can tell you that they make a reading take twice as long as it should, which doesn’t benefit either of us.

Here’s the good news: You can download Calibre for free to convert your .PDF.

Q: What is the status of my review?

A: Once I have received a copy of your ebook, you will receive an e-mail confirming receipt and an ETA for your review. You can follow my progress with your book by checking the right sidebar under “I’m Reading”– I update it every Saturday.

Q: How can I request a beta reading?

A: Provide the required information. Please keep in mind that while this does not guarantee a beta reading, it does increase your chances significantly.

Q: What is the status of my beta reading?

A: Once I have received your manuscript, you will receive an e-mail confirming receipt and an ETA for my critique. You can follow my progress with your work by checking the right sidebar under “I’m Reading”– I update it every Saturday.

Q: Can I pay you for a better review?

A: No. Don’t you wish you could get back the three seconds you spent looking for this answer?

Guest Posts

Q: Can I write a guest post for FetchingFigment?

A: If you are interested in writing a guest post, contact me and introduce yourself.

Q: Should I self-edit my guest post?

A: Absolutely. Your guest post represents you, so it’s in your best interest to make sure you’re represented well. It’s my job to make sure you’re represented accurately.

Q: Will you make changes to my guest post?

A: I may adjust some minor typos, provided they are actual typos and not author error, but other than that, the text you provide will be published as is. I will format your post for legibility purposes, which may entail breaking up large paragraphs, adding bullet points, headers, and images. You’re welcome.

Please note: Once your post has been published, it’s published, so don’t forget to self-edit.

Q: Do I have to send an author portrait with my guest post?

A: Yes. The world wants to know who you are. Minors (ages 17 and younger) are the only exception.

Q: Can I provide my own images for my guest post?

A: Sure can. Send your pictures with your guest post. Make sure they are at least 500 pixels in either direction. Do not send blurry images; if you have to ask if an image is blurry, it’s blurry.

Q: Will FetchingFigment guest post on my blog?

A: It’s possible! Send an e-mail with the following information:

A link to your blog (What am I getting myself into?)
3-5 Blog Topics (What would you like me to write about?)
Deadline (When do you need it?)
Exclusive (Do you want this post to be available on both our blogs or exclusive to your blog?)

I will e-mail you back to let you know whether or not I am interested, which topic I’ll be writing about, and whether or not I can meet the deadline you’ve set.

Genre (What kind of story is this?)
A synopsis (What can the readers expect?)
An excerpt (Approximately 1000 words)
A book cover (Entice your readers)

I will e-mail you back to let you know whether or not I am interested and, if so, we can discuss the details then.
