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

Make sure to include both the title, and the monthly batch in which it was offered.

Please Note: we are not following up on titles won before March 2021.

I still haven't received Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend by Jenny Colgan from the March 2020 batch or 500 Miles From You by Jenny Colgan from the April 2020 batch.

I have not received Landscape of a Marriage - Gail Ward Olmsted from the April batch.

>5 AbigailAdams26: So far, nothing in e-mail or spam for The Birds of Bachelor Lane from March, but I'm not sure how long the re-send would reasonably take.

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

My list of books won shows lots of books won but nothing. Am I missing something about where I should be looking, I.e. from the author, LibraryThing?

I’m sorry to bother.

>4 Ford_and_Hemlock: Both of these titles were included in our May 2021 batch. Publishers have eight weeks/two months to deliver the books, before we will follow up with them. Please post again at the end of July, if you have still not received these two, and I will message the publishers.

15AbigailAdams26
Jul 7, 3:28pm

>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.

16AbigailAdams26
Jul 7, 3:55pm

>8 johntgriffin: I have reached out to the publisher of "Ain't Nothin' Personal," to ask them to email a replacement copy to you. Please double-check your spam folder, if you do not see an email from Black Rose Writing in your inbox, over the next few days.

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.

>9 Megan_Hand: I have contacted the publishers of these two books, to ask for replacement copies. Please be on the lookout for emails from BHC Press and Black Rose Writing, and be sure to check your spam folder, if you do not see these emails in your inbox, over the next few days.

>12 snoron: I would double-check your profile here on LT. 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.

I haven't received the two books I won from the October 2020 batch, The Wandering Palestinian by Anan Ameri, and To the River, We Are Migrants by Ayendy Bonifacio.

>11 tealadytoo: I have reached out to the publisher of Landscape of a Marriage, to ask them to send you a replacement copy.

Regarding The Birds of Bachelor Lane, I have not heard back from the publisher, and am not sure there is anything else to be done at this point, other than mark it as unreceived. I'm very sorry for the disappointment.

Have not received Hostile Intent by Lynnette Eason from May 2021 batch. I mention this only because I received my June 2021 "win" from the same publisher today. On the list, it says I can't report it as not received until July 31st of 2021.

>12 snoron: Hi there. It's not a bother at all - I'm here to help - but could you let me know which titles you are waiting on? How many would you say you are missing, and when did you win them? Thank you for any additional information.

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!!!

>27 tealadytoo: I'm glad that Landscape of a Marriage arrived, but sorry to hear about the technical trouble you've been experiencing. If the trouble is with your ISP, I'm not sure what can be done about it on our end. I'm also wondering how many people this is happening to...?

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.

I have not received When We're Thirty from the May 2021 batch. AbigailAdams26 I'm mentioning it here because I can see on the book's entry here at LT that other people have received theirs. I have double-checked my spam and made sure the correct email address is listed here at LT.

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.

Ago 31, 4:09pm

>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
Ago 31, 4:13pm

>55 zigaraut: As this one is part of the July batch, the publisher has until the end of September to deliver it.

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.

Sadly, I have still not received my digital copy of Finding the Vein that was from the June 2021 batch. Ooligan is a college press, so maybe they were waiting for a new semester to start?

I have not received my digital copy of The Step Back from the June 2021 giveaway.

I check my email inbox every day and I have turned off all my unwanted email protection filters (scan for viruses and spam).

>62 Authentico: I had the same problem with Ooligan Press from the June batch.
I assume (just guessing here) that since they're a college-run press no one was around to send them out. Maybe with school starting back up we'll get them?

I won The Step Back in a previous batch, I liked it!
