New Reviewer Preliminary Period: Only 3 books out at a time. After the preliminary period reviewers will be able to get more titles at once. For the first 10 reviews reviewers will need to review eBooks only. After the preliminary period they will then be able to request print books as long as a reviewer lives in the 50 USA. Reviewers outside of the 50 United States of America can do eBooks only.
Free Books: Reviewers are provided a free book by the publisher or author, but the getting of a free book should never prompt a glowing review. A review should be based on the books merit and not on where it came from. We do not allow author bashing, but it is good to help an author out with information on how they could improve. Reviews need to be considerate.
Copyright: Night Owl Reviews owns the reviews and retains copyright. Reviewers may post a short portion of their NOR reviews on their personal blogs and on sites such as Amazon and B&N as long as NOR is given credit for the review and a link to NOR is provided back to the review. Reviewers may not post reviews on other review networks.
Non-Distribution: All NOR reviewers must agree to not distribute any eBooks or ARC's that are provided for review purposes. It's against the law to distribute eBooks. If a reviewer distributes an eBook NOR is not responsible. Reviewers are responsible for their own actions and the publisher can come after them with legal action. By filling out the NOR Reviewer form you agree not to distribute any eBook or ARC we provide you with. eBooks and ARC's are provided for review purposes only. Reviewers in violation will have their NOR accounts closed immediately.
