Readers

Are you interested in seeing more good books get published?

Join a community whose goal is to change the industry

by giving readers more influence over what books get published and supported.

Here's how it works for readers:

As soon as you sign up you'll receive a survey giving you the option to select exactly the types of books you'd like to read. 

After that, you'll receive periodic emails asking you to review a seventy-five-word description of a novel. If you aren't interested, write a brief, anonymous note to the writer explaining why.​ If you like the description and want to read more, you'll see a 350-word description of the novel. 

After you read the longer description, you decide again. If you want to read more, you'll receive the first thirty pages of the novel. If you still like it, you get to read the complete manuscript! 

This is your chance to make a difference. Once you've read the novel, rate it on a 1-10 scale and fill out a brief survey about what you liked/didn't like about the plot, characters, and a few other categories. If you can't make it through the novel, you can opt out at the halfway point and fill out the same survey. 

And that's just phase one! If enough readers like the book, the Good Book Collective will help the author get it published! You can support the books and authors you like and help those books find their audience! 

To build community, we'll hold events and encourage you to interact with us on social media (if you're into that sort of thing), and we will keep you in the loop as the Good Book Collective grows. 

 

We look forward to having you as part of the Good Book Collective community.
