How it Works

What was that? You want to join our awesome club? Of course you do. Here’s how:

1. Submit your book for review. First, fill out our online submission form outlining the details of the price promotion for your book.

2. Once we receive your submission our team will review your book to determine if we will be featuring your story. If your title is chosen (which we hope it is!) you will receive a confirmation notice along with an invoice. If your book is NOT selected we will notify you via email within a few days.

3. After your book has been chosen as a feature for our readership it will be YOUR responsibility to coordinate the price reduction with your retailers. We recommend making price changes at least 24 hours in advanced to the day of your promotion.

4. All we’ll need is your story. Sit back and relax our team will handle any additional creative property.

5. The final step is confirmation from your retailers that the discount price of your book is in effect. Once the price has been verified at ALL locations, we will move forward in sending your book to our readers. You will receive confirmation via email the morning of your promotion.

Robin Reads Listing Requirements

In order for us to consider your submission for a Robin Reads feature, your title must be at minimum:

  • Free or $.99. Our members are promised featured books that have special discounts so that they can build their library at minimal cost.
  • Error free. Content should be well-formatted, and free of typos and grammatical errors.
  • A full-length book. While we don’t have a minimum page count requirement, full length books will be given priority over short stories.
  • Not listed within the last 90 days. If we have already promoted your book with us, you must wait at least 90 days before you can promote again.

Please note the even if these requirements are met, there is not guarantee that your submission will be chosen for a feature. Our exceptional editorial team reviews the many submissions that meet our requirements and selects those they feel are the best fit for our readers to be featured in the Robin Reads email.

Tips for Making Your Submission More Competitive

Once your submission meets the minimum requirements, it will be reviewed by our editorial team. Unfortunately, due to the volume of submissions we aren’t able to feature every book in our Robin Reads email. Here are a few tips to make your book more competitive:

  • Price point: Our readers are always looking for the best discount available. Because of this, we rarely feature books priced above $.99.
  • Date flexibility: Each genre category has a limited number of spots, so a broad range of possible promotion dates improves the likelihood that we can include your title.
  • Professional presentation: We look for books with professional and appealing covers.
  • Customer reviews: Feedback, reviews, and ratings help our editors gauge reader response. However, there is no specific “minimum requirement,” reviews are only one factor out of many considered.
  • Critical reviews: Write-ups from trusted editorial sources helps us evaluate your submissions, as well as bestseller lists, awards, and any other accolades.
  • Subject matter: Certain genres and sub-genres perform better with our readers than others. We may or may not currently have a practical spot for your title. Also, your book’s particular subject matter may not fit as well as others in the same category. However, we’re constantly expanding and adding new lists, so stay tuned for updates.
Please note that if your submission is not selected for a Robin Reads listing, this by no means is a comment on the quality of your work. Our editorial team looks for deals we believe will perform best with our readers, based on their unique interests and reader habits. Ultimately, we want to insure an appealing offer for our members and a successful promotion for our valued partners.
