What are Freebooksy's editorial guidelines for book descriptions?

Updated 4 months ago by Melissa Bartlett

Freebooksy requires unique book descriptions of 350-characters or less to run your promotion. Book descriptions cannot be copied and pasted from Amazon.

Book descriptions cannot be copied and pasted from Amazon due to Google’s duplicate content policy. If we have exactly the same content as Amazon, Google will block Freebooksy from showing up in search results. That would mean far less readers would make it to our site and negatively impact authors sales and downloads. In order to avoid that issue, we use unique book descriptions (which is why we ask authors to provide us with one).

We understand that authors are busy & may not have the time to write a new book description when booking their feature. If we see that your book description is duplicated or too long, our editorial team will rewrite your description and your promotion will be run as scheduled.

You can log into your Written Word Media Account to update your book description and view your promotion details. You can learn how to create and log into your account here.
