A meeting place for novelists and novel reviewers, with a little added incentive.
The Great Novel Review Exchange
A formal meeting place for novelists and novel reviewers.
Novelists seeking reviews:
Please introduce yourself in a forum post below using this AUTHORS' QUESTIONNAIRE ▼
Reviewers seeking novels:
Please introduce yourself in a forum post below using this REVIEWERS' QUESTIONNAIRE ▼
After submitting one of the questionnaires, scroll through the posted introductions and invite any party(ies) to a proposed exchange. Reach a formal agreement that is satisfactory to both parties. Please use the forum to arrange the details of your agreement so the activity organizers have a record of what was agreed upon for enforcement / encouragement purposes, and so we can clarify any ambiguous language and avoid potential future disputes.
The activity organizers cannot strictly enforce compliance with your agreed-upon terms, because we're not the mafia. However, we will encourage compliance via the following strategies:
We plan to commission a merit badge or awardicon or both, depending on donations, which we will award to a reviewer once we have evidence that the agreed-upon review(s) took place (either because the reviewee reported it complete, or the review is publicly available on the WDC reviews page.)
Any reviewer who fails to meet their reviewing commitment within a reasonable timeframe (3 months, unless a different specifically-agreed-upon timeframe is arranged between the parties in the formal agreement) will be permanently banned from this forum. NOTE: If both parties agree to formally cancel the agreement, neither will be banned so long as the agreed-upon cancellation is posted publicly in the forum.
Donations are appreciated!
