  1. I am subscribed to Bookbub and receive a list of free books daily through Facebook. Without fail, 3 out of 5 of the offers are romance. I never order romance and am not interested in them. Wonder if there is a way to tweak what genre my choices would include.

    • First, sorry for the late reply. We’ve been inundated with spam lately and that makes it harder to spot legitimate comments and questions.

      You can set preferences for your BookGorilla email alert, but that doesn’t guarantee no romances will ever show up in your email alert because many authors and publishers classify their romance novels in as many genres/categories as possible to cast their reader net as wide as possible, and there’s no way for our search and matching software to “know” whether a book that matches for some non-romance genre (e.g., Historical Fiction) is actually a romance.

      However, because this is a common complaint, we are working on refining our search software so that it can weed out romances by checking to see if a given book is classified as romance in addition to whatever the matched category is. This is turning out to be pretty complicated to do without unintentionally excluding books that a given subscriber does want included though, so it’s going to take some time.
