REVIEWER TERMS & CONDITIONS
Reviewers need to be well versed in the English language and have the time to commit to reviewing books in a timely manner. Reviewers must edit their own reviews and only provide content provided from their own written word.
Posting Reviews Other Places
Reviewers may post a snippet of their review on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and on their personal blogs after the review has been published to the Night Owl Reviews website. Reviews need to be linked back to the NOR review when possible and copyright put down as Night Owl Reviews.
Selecting a Book Agreement
Reviewers must agree to review all books they select. Reviewers select the books and authors they want to review. In the case that a reviewer gets sick or has an unexpected emergency they need to contact us ASAP so we can schedule a new due date or find an alternate reviewer.
Reviewers need to be able to read eBooks. Our most common formats are PDF and .Mobi (Kindle). We send Net Galley and Edelweiss Kindle books direct to a Kindle / Kindle App. We also get in prints. Prints are shipped only in the USA and are for reviewers who complete the preliminary period.
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.
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. Reviewers must always be professional in their reviews.
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.
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.
Reviewers are NOT employed by NOR, but are users of the site. We don't pay for reviews. Reviewers many not take payment for any reviews provided to Night Owl Reviews.
