Want to be an ARC Reader?

Be a Sweet & Spicy ARC Reader!

It can be hard for a new LGBT romance author to get the ARC reviews they need to help with their book launch. That's where you—our dedicated readers—come in!

As part of Sweet & Spicy's ARC Program, you'll receive a variety of books from different authors. It's a simple way to read and enjoy ARCs and support your favorite authors.

Here's how it works:

  1. You fill out our application and we'll get back to you if you're accepted as part of the team.
  2. We send you your batch of ARCs on Thursdays. If any of the books interest you, download a copy and read it.
  3. When the book goes live, we'll email you a link so you can post your review.

And here are the rules:

  1. You only need to download books you're interested in. If there aren't any books that interest you, or you're busy, just skip that week. There's no problem with taking a break.
  2. Please post your review within a week of receiving the live link to the book. Authors count on the team to make their launch week a success, so that means timely reviews.
  3. If you are unable to read a book you claimed for any reason, just shoot us an email. We understand that real life happens!
  4. If you disliked a book and wish to give it a three star or below review, we would prefer if you sent us feedback to (anonymously) be forwarded to the author.
  5. Reviews must be posted on Amazon. Goodreads, personal blogs, and other retailers are optional.
