Host Terms & Conditions

By signing up to participate in a campaign organized by JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC, you are agreeing to the following:

  • Your website/platform is family-friendly and does not contain explicit images or content.
  • Signing up as a JustRead Host grants access to our exclusive monthly host giveaways and special campaigns with giveaways.
  • Hosts still need to sign up for individual campaigns to be considered for that campaign.
  • Hosts are not required and/or limited to sign up for any certain number of campaigns.
  • Signing up for a JustRead campaign does not guarantee selection for that campaign.
  • After the close of a campaign’s sign-up period, all hosts will be notified via email whether or not they have been selected.
  • You are not employed by, nor an agent of, JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC. Campaign participation is strictly voluntary. (We ask that you fulfill your commitments to the best of your abilities and communicate honestly and openly with the JustRead partners. You may be removed at any time from JustRead campaigns per the guidelines below.)
  • You are responsible for noting the date(s) that you sign up for and the date we have assigned for your post. We confirm dates when we send out the campaign schedule in each welcome email. Please double-check your date and make sure you confirm it on your calendar. We do not send out personal reminders for posts. If you need to reschedule your spot due to unforeseen circumstances, please let us know before your scheduled date and time as soon as possible.
  • For review assignments, please post an honest review (whether positive or negative) by 11:59 PM EST on your scheduled date. A negative review will not affect your standing with JustRead. However, we expect you to read at least 80% of the book and be fair and kind in your review.
  • Your post will include the required information provided in the campaign assets email to be sent within the week before the start of the campaign. (Giveaway info, book info, etc.)
  • Your post must remain public for a minimum of 60 days.
  • Your review should be at least 100 words in length.
  • You will not use foul language in your JustRead campaign post.
  • For review stops, you will post your review to at least one consumer website of your choice (in addition to your blog/social post, if applicable). Options include Goodreads, BookBub, Amazon, Barnes & Noble,, etc. Amazon and Goodreads are preferred but not required.
  • You will complete the campaign submission form (if applicable), with direct review links, by the end of the campaign.
  • You will not sell, share, trade, publish, or otherwise infringe on the copyright of any book, digital or print, given to you for review. (Not just for JustRead campaigns. We feel very strongly about book pirates… not the hunky kind on the seven seas. We have strong feelings about them, too, though 😊 )

The following actions will result in not being accepted to future JustRead campaigns and/or may result in removal from already-scheduled campaigns.

  • Failure to meet the above host agreements THREE TIMES. The exception is the agreement against pirating the book in any way. If we ever learn that a host has abused our trust and/or that of any publisher, author, or other tour groups by illegally using a review copy, they will be immediately removed from our campaigns and reported to the proper authorities.
  • Rude, hurtful, inflammatory, and/or unkind behavior toward other bloggers/tour groups, publishers, authors, and/or the JustRead partners. This will not be tolerated.
  • Plagiarism of someone else’s review or graphics without permission and credit.

Other Important Things to Remember:

  • Any questions regarding the campaign or the book should be directed to JustRead, not by contacting the publisher or author. (Violators will be suspended from JustRead campaigns and may be banned from future campaigns for the publisher/author.)
  • Since we cannot logistically read every scheduled title, clients must provide content notes for any potentially offensive, distressing, or distasteful content. Please let us know if you encounter any undisclosed content of this nature.
  • Per the FTC regulations, please note in a disclaimer that you received books (egalley, ARC, or print copies) free from publishers, authors, and/or publicity groups. A disclaimer must be noted, otherwise, you are subject to a fine up to $250 for each infraction. For more info, check out Federal Trade Commission 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
