BookMojo’s refund policy varies by product. All refunds will be processed and issued within 30 calendar days of the refund request.
For the PR Ninja or PR Titan Packages: If a client requests a refund on an annual PR Ninja or PR Titan package, the refunded amount will be the package price net the individual cost of all promotions run from the start of the package to the date of the refund request. If the cost of the promotions run comes to more than the amount paid for the package, the client has the option to cancel the refund request and accept a $0 refund or be billed for the difference due for services rendered.
For PA Services: Any unworked hours will be fully refunded upon request. All hours are tracked down to the minute on a shared Google spreadsheet which has timestamped revision tracking.
For Virtual Book Tours, Book Blitzes, or Cover Reveals: With refund requests on virtual book tours, book blitzes, or cover reveals, the promotion is fully refundable until the promotion’s materials have been built and the blogger booking has been sent. Once the booking request has been sent, the client may cancel the promotion but the promotion will not be refunded.
For Premade Book Covers: Premade book covers are fully refundable until the final proof is approved. Once the final proof is approved, the sale of the cover is final.
For Newsletter Features: Features are fully refundable until the newsletter is sent out to our mailing list.
For Website Designs: Once the final design concept is approved and transferred to the author’s website, no refund will be issued.
For All Other Services: Refund requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The determining factor will be the amount of work completed. All of our work is tracked for 100% transparency so there is no room left for doubt regarding the amount of work put in on the author’s behalf.

BookMojo does not receive any monitory compensation in return for the reviews and/or endorsements which appear on this site.

Review Turnaround Time
Our current review turnaround time for self-published, independent, or small press titles is unknown. We get approximately 500 review requests per month. We go through them as soon as they come in and eliminate the ones for authors who clearly didn’t read our review policy. For the remaining requests, they are sent out to our review team. If one of the reviewers is interested, we will email you back to request a copy of the book.
IF YOU HAVE A REVIEW DEADLINE (i.e. upcoming publication date), please let us know in advance and we will try our best to accommodate.
If you would like to submit your book for review, please read the full policy first.
Instructions for submitting your review request can be found at the bottom of the page.
BIG FIVE / TRADITIONAL PUBLISHERS: Reviews are posted either on release day or within a week or so following the release of a book (provided we receive the review copy in a reasonable amount of time). See section titled ARC’s & Galley Bound Copies for further details.

For all others not listed, or if it’s not clear where your book falls, just contact us to discuss.
BookMojo reviews are written from a fair, honest point of view. Please remember, the opinions expressed are the reviewers’ opinions and represent the reviewers’ personal tastes. BookMojo allows multiple reviewers to review any given title, thus offering varying opinions.
ARC’s & Galley Bound Copies
We gladly accept advanced review copies (ARC’s)/galley bound copies to review, as well as books which have been released already. If you are sending us an ARC/galley copy for review, we will try our hardest to get the review up on, or very close to, the book’s release date. Just remember, if you want a review done by the book’s release date, we need enough time to plan on the book being in our schedule.
We happily accept print copies. However, we encourage publishers and authors to contact us before sending a copy. This allows us to reach out to the team to make sure there is someone interested in reviewing the title before you waste the time and money to send us a copy.
Print copies can be sent to:
132 Cram Rd.
Sanborton NH 03269
BOOKMOJO IS REGISTERED ON BOTH NETGALLEY AND EDELWEISS
Please contact us prior to sending a NetGalley or Edelweiss widget. Several members of our review team are registered, and, depending on who will be reading your book, you may need to use a different email address for the widget.
We happily accept ebooks for review. We are not opposed to the advancement of the electronic age! However, we do not have every ereader on the market. The formats we can accept are as follows:
– Kindle books (gifted from Amazon or .prc files)
– PDF (Portable Document Format)
– .mobi files
– .epub files
Here at BookMojo, we happen to love audio books. As much as we would love for BookMojo to be our full time job, that is not the case. Audiobooks allow us to “read” while at our day jobs. That’s eight hours of reading time every day we would not otherwise have. If you have your book available as an audio book, and would like it reviewed, we would gladly accept it. Just email us and we will work out the details.
Ebook, Print, and Audiobook Pirating
Books supplied to BookMojo, whether it be physical, audio, or electronic, will never be duplicated, sold, rented, or otherwise distributed in any way by BookMojo or a BookMojo staff member without written permission of the author and/or publisher.
Our Rating System
Our reviews are written in a simple format with no star ratings:
– What We Liked
– What We Didn’t Like
– Who We Would Recommend The Book To
This allows the person reading the review to still form their own opinion on whether or not they would like to purchase the book.
Please visit our Review Policy & Submissions page and fill out the form to submit your title for review.
