Read and Review Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions of the Read and Review Program

  • By participating and paying in the Read and Review program, the author is purchasing access to our many reviewers. The author is not purchasing reviews.
  • We do not guarantee a specific number of reviews. We will send the author the allotted amount of interested reader’s emails. These readers do not receive compensation nor are they employees of IndieSage.
  • Readers are all informed that they must comply with Amazon requirements and include the disclaimer “I received this book in exchange for an honest review.”
  • IndieSage will email reviewers twice to remind them to review. Not all reviewers will leave a review.
  • We estimate that out of 25 reviewers, around 10-16 will leave reviews.
  • Reviewers will leave honest reviews. We can’t guarantee that all the reviews will be good. Amazon reserves the right to reject any review.
  • If your book doesn’t receive the 25 reviews, we will not offer a refund. We will continue promoting your book until we get as close to that number as possible.
  • It is against our terms and conditions for the author to offer additional free books to the reader. Any violation of this policy will result in the termination of the author’s contract with IndieSage.
  • The author may not use any other service to distribute the book to the reader.
  • There are no book swaps. If the author’s book doesn’t receive the number of interested readers the author may not swap the book for another title.
  • One of the email addresses may be a dummy address from Indie Sage for quality control.
  • Authors may not harass, solicit, or annoy the readers. Any violation will result in termination of the contract.
  • Indie Sage deserves the right to reject any book from the program. We do not accept any book  that discriminates against anyone based on disability, race, religion, sexual orientation or gender. We also don’t accept any book that includes the following subject matters:
    • Incest (step-siblings okay!)
    • Pornography (erotica okay!)
    • Bestiality (shape-shifters & werewolves okay!)
    • Necrophilia (zombies & vampires okay!)
    • Rape for Pleasure (dark romance okay!)
    • Pedophilia (sorry—never okay, unless you’re Vladimir Nabokov . . . or Sting!)
