Q: What is BookSweeps' mission?
Our goal here at BookSweeps is helping readers find new authors they love. From Contemporary Romance to Sci-Fi Fantasy, we believe in getting readers matched up with content they truly enjoy — creating lasting relationships between authors and readers for years to come!
Q: How does BookSweeps match readers to authors?
Our list-building and follower giveaways include participation events where readers can either opt-in to receive emails from an author, or follow an author on Amazon and BookBub.
Q: What if I just signed up to win a prize, and don't wish to hear from authors?
Readers are given a chance at the end of every list-building contest to opt-out if they decide they do not wish to hear from authors in the giveaway. We have this double-confirmation system in place because we want to make sure readers only hear from authors they are interested in.
Q: I opted-in to hear from authors during the giveaway — when will they contact me?
About 1-2 weeks after a list-building promotion is over, readers will start to receive emails from the authors they checked to hear from during the giveaway.
If you followed an author on Amazon of BookBub, you'll hear from them when they have a deal or new release.
Q: What if I don't wish to hear from authors anymore?
If you wish to be removed from an author's email list and no longer hear about their books, please simply unsubscribe. We urge readers to not mark author's emails as spam, as this can cause problems with the author's email provider.
If you no longer wish to follow an author on Amazon or BookBub, simply opt-out of following the author on those platforms.
Q: Who can I contact if I have questions?
If you have any questions about our process or your involvement as a reader, please contact BookSweeps support here and we will get back to you as soon as we can!
