Everyday I read the many poems, book releases, and questions posted on daily blogs and newsletters that pertain to attaining book reviews. Too often we receive suggestions and advice that hopefully will result in achieving that eventual result...the positive book review; however..."easier said than done" is the result.
As a newly published author, I too have researched and studied the many ways to display my book on various websites, ezines, etc. One thing is for certain... No one will purchase our wonderful books if they do not know they exist. Further, it is a known fact that positive reviews always encourage the pospective reader/client to decide to purchase.
What is the first thing we do when looking for a book to read? The book cover is what always draws us in, the subject matter and/or the synopsis and/or short paragraph that hooks us into the storyline. The reviews are also extremely important; drawing us into reading the reviews that sway us into "I can't wait to buy and read this book!"
As struggling authors, getting reviews is not always a simple task. Reviewers charge a fee, and although often the amount is minimal, it is not free. The other side of the coin is that too often the review is not a positive one, and whatever the fee/charge for the review...it was too much!! Usually we are cautioned that if the price is too good to be true ...then it isn't! Contrary to that usual outcome; this time.... free is wonderful! In my quest for positive reviews for my work, I discovered a wonderful website that has assisted me in achieving precisely what I had hoped. GREAT REVIEWS!!
