This blog is an 18+ blog. Its purpose is to help authors get the word out about their new, recent, and upcoming releases. This is not a review site. Nor are we monetarily compensated for featuring covers, excerpts, and/or book trailers by the authors or publishers. We would however appreciate a reciprocal link and your help in promoting this site.
If you'd like to have your book or ebook cover art, blurb, an excerpt, and/or book trailer featured on this blog, we'll be happy to consider it.
Check out our low-cost, fee-based promo services: Coming Soon, On Sale and Twitter promo. See the Author Services page.
At this time, we are only featuring the genres in the following list on Cover Reveals. We do not feature Young Adult (YA) or New Adult (NA) in any genre.
Romance and all its sub-genres including erotic, BDSM & GLBT (no erotica please)
Horror (paranormal/supernatural only)
Mystery & Cozy
Science Fiction (SciFi)
as well as a few other select genres from some of our favorite authors.
In the future, we will be adding other genres as well. So please do not submit a request for any genre not in this list.
Guidelines and Submission Instructions
- We reserve the right to post the covers we feel are appropriate for this site. This means not all requests will be accepted.
- A note about post comments... While we do allow comments and encourage the author to post a comment, do not be concerned about the lack of comments on your post. As of November 2014, the site gets 3800-4600 page views per day. A lack of comments or lack of site followers is not an indication of how many times your post is being viewed. We have some posts with 6-10 comments but have only been viewed 80+ times and other posts with zero comments that have been viewed 1500+ times per week.
- Only upcoming, new, and recent releases within the past three months to next six months will be considered. And only novellas, novels, and anthologies/short story collections – no short stories (less than 12,000 words).
- If you do not receive a reply to your request to be featured on Cover Reveals within 1 week, please send a quick email asking if we received your request. We are finding Gmail is quarantining several request emails in the spam folder on their server so the emails never make it to our email program on the computer.
- We will try to accommodate your requested appearance date. However, due to the volume of requests, your date may not be available. Therefore, we will also ask for an alternate date as well as dates not to post before and after.
- Please do not make any requests for dates more than 6 months (180 days) in the future.
- Please make sure your blurb and excerpt (if applicable) are edited because they will appear as they are provided. We will not be checking them for grammar or spelling mistakes.
- We do not offer giveaways or use Rafflecopter on our site. However if you are giving away a copy of your title on your site or Rafflecopter and would like us to note it in the post, please indicate the link and the ending date and time as well as if the giveaway is open to all or just certain countries in the 'Any special notes/comments about your request:' field.
- In most cases your post will appear on Cover Reveals before 1 am Eastern U.S. time on the date of your appearance. We are not responsible for Blogger issues, power issues, or internet connectivity issues.
- A note about promotion: We will send out a minimum of 6 tweets about your title's appearance on our site. Since the posts do not get deleted, we continue to tweet about your post during the week following the appearance, if not more. The most viewed posts are the ones the authors and/or requestors take an active role in promoting. By telling the author's fans and followers via tweets, on Facebook, on the author's blog, etc. as well as retweeting the @CoverReveals' tweets about the post, the post will have the best chance of working for you as a promotional/marketing tool. We have several posts that appeared back in Dec 2012 and Jan 2013 that still get quite a few daily page views because the author and we continue to actively promote the post.
- Important: If you are new to Cover Reveals, incomplete requests will not be considered nor will you receive an email asking for missing information. The request volume simply will not allow for this. So please be careful and provide all the information and file attachments or links as necessary. Returning authors may schedule in advance as soon as a firm release date is known. Provide title, genre, and release date. However, it is up to you to remember to have all the details to us within ten (10) days prior to your post. Purchase links only may be provided within this timeframe if your post date is at least several days after your release date. We will no longer be contacting you for missing information, and we will use our discretion as to whether or not to allow the post to appear with incomplete information.
