Hi All. Please report the Early Reviewers titles that you have not received in this new thread, going forward.

Hi, I have not received any ebooks I have won. I have checked my Spam folder repeatedly.

>7 pkg427: Hi pkg427. Is it possible that you mean May Day by Emma Coleman, rather than by Emma Goldman? The former was a title included in our June 2021 batch.

In any case, as mentioned above, we give publishers eight weeks/two months to deliver their books, before we will follow up with them. Please post again about May Day at the end of August, and about Beneath a Buried House at the end of July.

Regarding Blinding Lies, I have followed up with the publisher, and asked them to send you a replacement copy. Please check your spam folder over the next little while, if you do not see an email from them in your inbox.

I have also contacted you privately, to verify that your mailing address is correct, before reaching out to the publisher of "The Silence."

In answer to your question, I cannot remove the book from your list, but if you list it as unreceived, once the system allows you to do so, it will not count against you, when it comes to winning future ER titles.

Make sure that your email address is spelled correctly, and not missing something like a period before the 'com' or the special characters (if you had one, like an exclamation point). If you changed your profile email recently, that might be a reason too, since nothing forwards from the previous email address.

Also, as TooLittleReading notes above, you might want to check the contact information you provided, when you first joined ER, to make sure it is still accurate. You can find that in the contact details box that appears in the upper right-hand corner of the ER page: https://www.librarything.com/er/list.

>19 kidzdoc: Unfortunately, I will not be able to follow up on these for you.

We changed the cut-off date for Members Giveaways yesterday, after consultation with a number of publishers, whose policy it is not to send out Early Reviewer copies, once the book in question has been published. We are not following up on titles won before January 2021.

I'm very sorry for the disappointment, kidzdoc. As I mentioned above, I've been brainstorming some ideas on improving the fulfillment end of ER, because I know this has been a consistent concern of members. I will keep you all posted.

>20 AbigailAdams26: I received the replacement copy of Landscape of a Marriage. Thanks very much for following up!

I may have to stop requesting e-books. My ISP is continuing to crack down on anything with attachments from a commercial source. :=( The publishers who send a download link seem to be acceptable but attachments come late and go to spam. This is no reflection on LT or Black Rose Writing, the publisher. Thanks to both for persisting!!!

Following up on my earlier message, to post teadladytoo's suggestion, from another thread:

"Is there any way to ask publishers who send ARCs via attachments to send an advance e-mail without the attachments? That way they could be added to the safe-senders list and perhaps things would go more smoothly. Just a thought."

A good idea to consider. I will keep this in mind.

Hi everyone. I wanted to draw your attention to the fact that we will not be following up on titles won before March 2021. This is a change (the second such change, actually) to our cut-off date, and reflects the fact that many publishers have a cut-off date themselves, after which they will not send replacement copies. For some publishers, this is a set period of time, for others it relates specifically to the publication date.

I apologize for any disappointment this causes. Our cut-off date will continue to change, as we go forward in time. I will edit the initial post accordingly, and draw members' attention to it, down thread, each time this occurs.

Thanks for all you do to track down the lost sheep! My sheep was The Healing of Natalie Curtis from the June 2021 batch. I don't think it is an addressing issue; I received a July 2021 win from the same publisher promptly after the batch closed.

>54 Ritayonan: Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. Can you confirm that you are still waiting on Shattered Souls? If it has not yet arrived, I can follow up with the publisher.

In terms of Blood Sugar, publishers have two months to deliver the books, which means that this one isn't overdue until the end of September.

These are both digital giveaways, correct?

58AbigailAdams26

That said, am I correct in thinking this is a digital giveaway? Have you checked you spam folder? I have received many reports that digital giveaways have gone astray, because the email from the publisher is from an address unknown to winners' email systems, and contains an attachment.

>82 BethYacoub: Generally speaking, LibraryThing policy is to give publishers two months to get books to the winners. As your giveaway was won at the end of August, this means that you can list it as unreceived (and we can reach out to the publisher) at the end of October.

That said, I am aware that this title was offered in both physical and digital formats. If you won a digital copy, it is possible the book has been sent, but that the email went to your spam folder, because the publisher's email address was unknown to your email system, and because it contained an attachment. Try checking there (the spam folder) to see if that is what happened.

If not, and you have not received it by the end of October, please let me know, and I will reach out to the publisher for you.

I have not received In a Nutshell by Cindy Dorminy and Read Me by Lauren Connelly. If I am not mistaken, these were supposed to be in e-book form. For a long time I didn't request e-books and started requesting a few this past year because there are not as many physical books to choose from. So far I have only received one of the e-books I have won. It doesn't look like anyone else has received them either according to the lack of reviews so I am assuming it is nothing that I have done incorrectly. Just in case though, should I be doing something different in order to receive these e-books? My email is up to date.
Thank you!

On a general note, I want to say that we're aware of the difficulties, when it comes to the delivery of digital giveaways.

Unreceived books:
10/29/2020 - Reaching Common Ground by Frederick Golder. Reached out in August 2021 and he did not remember doing a giveaway.
12/15/2020 - Love in the Time of Terror by Mary Faderan. Contacted author on LibraryThing and never received a response.
8/30/2021 - Preying on the Church by Kimberley B. Jones. Contacted author on 12/18/21 on LibraryThing and never received a response.
10/6/2021 - The Zen of Home Water by Jerry Hamza. Contacted author on 12/18/21 on LibraryThing and never received a response.
10/19/2021 - The Milkshake Diet by Paul Sourour. Have not contacted author yet to inquire.

I realize some of these are before August 2021 (I didn't know this thread existed until today). I figured I would just list them all since I know the first ones are probably going to count against me since I did not review them. If there is a way you can mark them as "not received", that would be helpful.

Thank you!

>119 BridgetteS: I'm sorry that you haven't received these books! It looks like they are all old Member Giveaway titles. Generally speaking, LibraryThing staff don't intervene in MG, as we consider it a member-run, member-driven part of the site. You would need to reach out to the members offering those books, in order to enquire about them, which it sounds like you have already done, in most cases.

Unfortunately, when it comes to The Milkshake Diet, it looks like this author is no longer interested in participating in a giveaway. I made an announcement about it here: https://www.librarything.com/topic/337153#n7769823.

The good news about all of this is that with our recent redesign of Early Reviewers (ER), and MG being discontinued and subsumed under ER, everyone, both those offering the giveaways and those winning them, will be subject to the same rules, and LibraryThing staff will be able to get more involved, in the case of books not received.

There is not a way, as it currently stands, to mark old MG wins as unreceived, on your Wins & Requests page, but non-reviewing of these titles will not be considered in our winners' algorithm, so there are no worries on that score.

>148 QueenOfBookland: I'm so sorry to hear that you have not received a number of your past giveaways. Unfortunately, I cannot follow up, in order to request replacement copies, after a certain point, so please do report unreceived books as soon as the month (for digital) or two month (for print) period elapses.

In terms of the format of the book, this should be clearly set out in the giveaway. I know we had a few errors, in the former Member Giveaway program, where the incorrect format was listed, causing confusion and concern after the fact. Going forward however, we have done everything we can to ensure that giveaways are listed with the correct format.

If someone offers a print book, but tries to send you a digital one, please let me know right away, and I will contact them. That being said, we've also had an uptick of members requesting ebooks recently, not realizing that they actually were ebooks (sometimes the publisher or author offers two formats), so those wanting only print books should be careful to check the format field when entering.

The book i received (today - even though the publisher shows a string of previous messages in the email today that i never received) was
Financial Accounting Essentials You Always Wanted To Know/Ashar, Kalpesh/ISBN 1636511007

but the early review book was
Financial Management Essentials You Always Wanted to Know: 5th Edition/Ashar, Kalpesh/ISBN 1636511007

and I have a made a mess of things now - I tried to manually add the book since it has a different title and I thought it was a whole different book, but, well you can see the issues i caused. Sorry!
https://www.librarything.com/work/24057512/editions/217037925

There IS a work with this title, that also has the 5th edition, that is completely different from what the publisher offered in the early reviewers' program, and seems to be what I was sent:
https://www.librarything.com/work/27887783/editions
