Tell our readers about your book. The more information you include in your post, the more your readers can get to know you and your writing style. If you put nonsense or characters in required fields and do not fill them out with real information your post will be deleted.
Why do we ask for so much information?
We want readers to be able to find your book and learn about you as an author. For that reason we want you to share more than what is on your Amazon book page and something different than what you may post on other sites. If you skip our required fields you are not giving our readers what they want and therefore your post will be deleted and not posted.
Check your submission
Please check your submission for accuracy before you hit the submit button. However it looks here is how it will be published. Beware that if you cut and paste from Word or Amazon description your post may contain extra lines or not look like you intend it to. The best thing to do is copy and paste to a plain text document (like Notepad) before you copy to our form. Only include links in the spaces indicated, not in your book synopsis. We also do not allow html.
Inappropriate books will be rejected
Forms that are filled with repeat information to get past the required fields will be deleted and not posted to our site. Nonfiction books and books that are not mystery genre will also be deleted. This site is for mystery book lovers – hence the name Mystery Reads 🙂 Please respect our time and do not submit inappropriate books. We want to spend our time promoting fiction authors, not deleting posts that don’t belong here. All posts are subject to approval, so don’t think you can get an inappropriate book by us even though you have registered for an account.
How long will it take for my book to show up on Mystery Reads?
Books will be posted in the order they were received and could take up to 10 days to be scheduled. We do not send notification of posts being scheduled, so please watch our social media for your post. All approved books will go to our Facebook and Twitter pages and to our email list.
Please do not type your entries in all capital letters. We will delete and ask you to resubmit. Thank you.
