  • How do I know if my book is the right fit for My Clean Bookshelf?
    My Clean Bookshelf strives to make it easier for readers that prefer clean novels of all categories to find their next favorite read. To fulfill our readers' needs as well as help our authors reach their target audience, every book submission goes through an approval process to ensure they fit our mission. Please refer to Our Book Standards to better determine if your book is a good fit for the website.
  • Will I receive an email indicating my book is approved and live on the website?
    No. The only time you will receive an email in regards to the approval/dispproval of your book, is if your book HAS NOT been approved. If you do not receive an email from our team within 3-4 businesses days of submitting your form, then congrats! Your book has been approved and is on the website!

    IF YOUR BOOK IS APPROVED You should expect to see your book listing up on the website within 3-4 business days.

We want My Clean Bookshelf to be an easy way to find "clean" books, and we will do our best to uphold that purpose.
