Frequently Asked Questions - Buying Book Reviews

DO YOU REVIEW NONFICTION AND FICTION?

Yes. We know our service is very important for all genres and we offer our book review service to all authors. However, our audience is engaged mostly with business books. That includes manuscripts, advance reader copies, and audiobooks!

WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR SUBMITTING MY BOOK AFTER PURCHASING?

The First Step:
First you’ll need to buy an ATS book review on our site.

The Second Step:
After that you’ll be sent an email with a form to fill out that requests more information about your book or manuscript. In this form there will be a place to upload the book or provide a link for a digital or audio copy of the book.

The Third Step:
Once the form is finished and we’ve received a copy of your book, you will receive a confirmation email. Then 60 days later you’ll receive a link to the book summary on site for your review and use. If you’re not happy with the review we can take it down upon your email request to support@accessorytosuccess.com.

MAY I LEVERAGE THE BOOK REVIEW AND AUTHOR BIO TO PROMOTE MY BOOK?

You definitely should! This should be a big component of your marketing plan with a goal of gaining credibility, social currency, and ultimately sales. Promoting this supportive third party review to your new and existing audience would be very powerful. We recommend your social media, blog, website, your book page on e-tailers, and more. The book review is an essential part of your marketing plan.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO FINISH MY REVIEW?

We aim to finish reviews within 60 days. We read the book, write a review, produce video and audio content, create customized images, post on social media, build internal and external backlinks, etc. All these elements are important and take time.

CAN I SEND A PHYSICAL COPY OF THE BOOK FOR THE REVIEW?

Currently we only accept e-books and audiobooks for review. However, if you do not have a digital copy of the book please email us. I'm sure we can work it out. It might cause a delay and exceed our 60 day goal though.

WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR MY BOOK TO BE REVIEWED?

We love reading and reviewing business books. Authors sometimes spend years writing their books and once published they truly need reviews. In our experience authors are grateful to get a review from us as it is professionally written and supportive. Our reviewers spend many hours reading your book and writing the review. The purchase price pays for their time as well as the content production and backlink construction.

WHO READS AND WRITES THE REVIEWS?

Our team of reviewers is made up of professional writers and editors.

WHAT LANGUAGES DO YOU REVIEW BOOKS IN?

At this time we only review books in English.

WILL I GET UPDATES AFTER I PURCHASE?

We will send status updates throughout the time we are reviewing the book. If you are not receiving any emails check your spam folder. If the problem persists please send us an email at support@accessorytosuccess.com.

IS THE REVIEW GUARANTEED TO BE POSITIVE?

Unfortunately not, but if you look through the reviews on our site you have trouble finding negative reviews. We ask our reviewers to be supportive and look for positive aspects to address in the book, but ultimately need reviews to be honest and trustworthy. Again, the fee goes to pay the reviewer for their time, content production, and backlinks.

WILL YOU SEND THE REVIEW TO ME BEFORE IT IS PUBLISHED?

Yes. You will receive a confirmation email after you complete your order. You can then respond to that email with a request to see the review before it is published.

WHAT IF I DO NOT LIKE THE REVIEW?

If the review is error free, we offer no revisions. We offer no refunds on this either. You are not buying a complimentary review, you are buying a professionally written, well produced review and our writers need to be compensated. We are happy to take your review off of our site and remove it from our marketing efforts though.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE REVIEW?

Our review format is structured and consistent. Each Review includes the following sections:

  • Main Takeaway - 100+ words in paragraph format.
  • What You’ll Learn - 100+ words in bullet point format, including specific things that people can expect to take away from the book and apply in their lives.
  • The Book Review/Summary - 300 words in paragraph format, that should be half summary half review and include a synopsis of any unique and memorable anecdotes.
  • About The Author - 200 words in paragraph format, including what they have built or accomplished. Sold a business, invested in Facebook, traveled the world speaking, etc.
  • We add 3 custom images using quotes from the book onsite and social if they are related to business.
  • There is an audio narration of the review produced by a professional voiceover artist embedded onsite, posted to our podcast, and YouTube channel.
  • A custom book mockup is created for the blog post header image and YouTube video.
  • Lastly, an email will be sent to our subscriber list to promote the book.
