How would you like to read all my new releases and upcoming titles completely for free?

If that caught your interest, good news — I’m currently adding to my list of Advance Reviewers.

Advance Reviewers receive upcoming A. Vivian Vane titles in advance, completely free, in exchange for posting their honest reviews on Amazon.com. I don’t open the program up for new members often, but right now I have room to add at least 2-3 new names to the very exclusive list!

The Advance Reviewer Program

Here’s how this works:

1. Roughly 1-2 weeks before public release of a new A. Vivian Vane title, Advance Reviewers receive a link to a complete PDF of the ebook. The stories are completed and edited by this point; the PDF will be the same document that paid purchasers receive when the book goes live.

2. Included in the email with the ebook will be a link to the Amazon item page.

3. In exchange for their free copy, Advance Reviewers are asked to post a succinct, positive review of the book on its Amazon page. (In some cases the book may still be in pre-order, meaning reviews cannot be posted; I will include the release date in the email so reviewers know when they can post reviews.)

Reviews need not be five-star, although it’s always appreciated. (The way the Amazon system is weighted, anything less than four stars hurts the title more than it helps, so please reserve those ratings for books that you thought were incomplete or full of errors, rather than just not quite to your taste.)

Reviewers should never feel pressured to praise a book they didn’t enjoy, but this is at heart a promotional program. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it! I will remove reviewers from the program if they are regularly posting negative or unflattering feedback.

Reviewers will continue to receive advance titles for free so long as they continue to post useful, positive reviews. Reviewers who skip reviewing multiple titles in a row will be removed from the list.

How to Become an Advance Reviewer

I currently have openings for 2-3 new reviewers, although if there’s strong interest I may go as high as 4-5. If you’d like to sign up, email me at a.vivian.vane@gmail.com, subject heading “Advance Reviewer,” and include in the body of your email:

  • the email address at which you wish to receive your advance copies and notifications
  • the Amazon account name with which you will be posting reviews (so that I can verify reviews have been posted)
  • any “hard no” kinks or gender pairings that you cannot comfortably read about or comment on (if there are a lot of these, I probably can’t use you — my books are quite wide-ranging!)

If you’re selected, I will reply to let you know that you’ve been added to the Advance Reviewer list. You’ll begin receiving preview copies within the next week or two!

If you enjoy my works, this is your chance to get them completely for free, every single title, so don’t hesitate — email me at a.vivian.vane@gmail.com to become an Advance Reviewer today!
