Step 1: Terms of Service
Here's what you need to know...
Global Bookworms is a reading service which offers book reviews, critiques and editorial services. We never offer a short "that was a good book" opinion, rather a well-thought-out opinion based on a five-point criteria:
Well-developed characters that mesh and are believable;
Strong plot with good flow and no gaps;
Believable dialogue that is not contrived;
Writing mechanics: punctuation, spelling, grammar;
Emotional impact and reader's opinion.
Each point of the criteria is worth 1-star only, totaling up to a 5-star review!
When an author hires a reader, they are not paying for a review, they are paying for:
The purchase of their book;
The reader's time to read the book to provide that well-written review or critique;
Overhead costs to provide our service;
Exposure for your book on our blog and social media for life, as well as another area your book is searchable online;
Publicity for your book on other sites of your choosing, such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. and possible increase in review rankings;
Word-of-mouth for your book for other potential readers to find and create potential book sales;
Marketable review material to use on your own website and possible increase to your site's traffic.
Lastly, books receiving the highest marks will be featured on our Home page for 2 months and periodically rotated back.
Prices are per book. If you have more than one book you wish our readers to read, you must submit each separately.
Global Bookworms is not a review service, in that we do not guarantee a good review or critique, but honest opinions of the book. Therefore we do not offer refunds for our service. If you do not want a poor review posted on sites such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. you must opt not to have it published when you fill out the book submission form at time of purchase. This do not apply to our website though.
Our five-point criteria ensures that your book will not receive low marks simply because it isn't a reviewer's "cup of tea." For your book to receive less than three stars, it must fail to pass scrutiny in:
reader's opinion and emotional impact.
We cannot guarantee that any site will accept a review or critique written; however, we will do all we can to ensure we comply with their terms. In the event that a critique is rejected, we will attempt to make it right by contacting the site to determine why and what can be done to ensure it is posted. As with all services, no refunds will be given for rejected critique, since you are not paying for that but rather the reader's time.
Once a review is posted, it will not be taken down. If an author decides to file a complaint with Amazon or other venue in relation to a critique written, Global Bookworms will provide them with the author's acceptance of our terms of service.
If you found our service favorable or are unhappy with our service, you may opt to leave feedback from which we will consider improvements to our services in future.
Specifically for Review:
Turnaround time for hiring a reader is between 7-10 business days.
While we expect readers to have the ability to read critically, we do not hold them to the same standard as an author when writing a critique, rather that they do their best to be thorough and to follow the five points that make up a great book. If they make mistakes in grammar or punctuation, try to appreciate that they are not writers, like you.
Print books can be mailed to:
1617 E. Brazos St.
Portales, NM 88130
IF hiring a second reader we will provide additional mailing information.
Please do not hire our readers if you do not agree with these terms.
