We were scheduled to have our first Indie TBR post going up today but it's been pushed back to tomorrow because we have an exciting opportunity for you!
We are really happy to be sent many independently published books for consideration for our boxes and we want to be able to consider even more. As you probably know we pride ourselves on including a wide variety of genres in our boxes and picking books people might have missed when they were originally published, or which have been recently published but aren't receiving as much attention as the publishers would like them to.
With only a finite number of hours in the day we are reaching the point where we can't read all the books we'd like to and we're looking for someone to read with us! This will basically mean you can browse our spreadsheet of available titles and request us to send you a couple of titles per month.
What we're looking for:
It would be great if you have pre-existing relationships with independent publishers (although this isn't a must) as we'd love to have someone who can bring titles we haven't yet discovered to our attention. It would be particularly great to have somebody who enjoys Crime/Thriller and/or Horror as these are genres we don't read much ourselves so having a more expert eye would be fantastic.
You must be based in the UK. This is just because otherwise it will get super expensive for us to send you books and as we're a teeny business our operating costs have to be kept as low as possible.
You must be able to be discreet and keep secrets. The contents of our boxes are always top secret, so if you're reading something specifically for box consideration and you think it's likely to be great enough to go into a box we will need you to not talk about it too much and definitely not mention that you're reading it for us!
How it will work:
Each month you can request up to two titles from our spreadsheet and we'll send you the books. Once you've read them please send us your thoughts and if you think something's particularly fantastic then we'll pass it along the into the box approval process.
What you'll get:
As previously mentioned, we're a teeny business so unfortunately can't afford to pay you to do this (we wish we could!). However what you will get (based on having read and submitted thoughts for one-two books per month):
* 50% off quarterly boxes (making them £14.99 rather than £29.99). If you're a subscriber this will still count - we'll sort out details once you're chosen.
* 20% off all stock in our shop, including books, bookish stationery and awesome gifts.
* Occassional extras!
If you can commit to reading a book or two for us each month and this looks good to you then please apply via the link below. Applications will close on Thursday 13th July at midnight and we'll notify our chosen applicant shortly after that.
