Minions Read and Review Program

Reader reviews are crucial to the success of a book.

I know you’ve heard it before. And maybe you’ve thought to yourself that your review couldn’t possibly be that important. Believe me, it is. Your honest thoughts and feelings on a book can be a huge determining factor when another reader is trying to decide whether or not to buy the book.

With this in mind, Apex has decided to launch our own Minion’s Read and Review program. We want to make sure that readers who yearn to have their opinions on Apex titles heard, can do so easily. What does that mean? It’s simple. We will send anyone who signs up for our Minion’s Read and Review program their choice of any Apex novel, novella, short story collection, nonfiction, or anthology as a free eBook in exchange for an honest review of it. Notice I said honest. Positive reviews are great, but fake positive reviews help no one. We want you to write what you really feel about the Apex titles you read. The good and the bad.

Once you’ve read the book and written up your review, we’d like you to post it in at least two places: Amazon and one other review site, such as Goodreads, Barnes & Noble, or even on the Apex website. Send our managing editor Lesley Conner an email ( with links to your reviews, and you’re all set to choose another free Apex eBook to read and review.

That’s it. Simple. You can read as many Apex titles as you’d like to for absolutely free as long as you are willing to review them on Amazon and one other site.

Once we’re notified that you’d like to be a part of our Minions Read and Review program, we’ll send you an email to confirm that you signed up and to ask what book you would like to read and review. Once you let us know, we’ll send you a download link with the PDF, ePub, and mobi formats. Simply read the book and write your review, leaving the review on Amazon and at least one other website. No deadlines. Once you’re done, send us your email with links to your reviews and you’re ready for your next book!

Sound like something you would be interested in? Of course! Free books are awesome!
