Update: Submission to BookBub Failed: "Lean User Testing" Does Not Have Enough Filler Pages

To spread the word, I submitted Lean User Testing to BoobBub, a newsletter that promotes free or discounted e-books. And I was rejected:

Thanks for your submission. At this time, BookBub only features full-length books, so unfortunately this book does not qualify for editorial review. We’ve included our page length requirements below:
  • Novels: 150+ pages
  • Nonfiction: 100+ pages
  • Cookbooks: 70+ pages
  • Children’s picture books: 20+ pages

And they are right: Lean User Testing is deliberately only 70 pages only. If you're a normal reader, it'll take two hours to get you from zero to "I want to run my first user tests". No unnecessary content, bloating the ebook and watering down the experience. It's about the reader, not the author.
