Whether I am speaking to novice writers or veteran authors, I cannot say this enough: Reviews Matter.
Perhaps as an author, you are okay with simply self-publishing your book and putting it online, but realistically, you want people to read it. You want people to love it! You want them to tell their friends all about it!
One way that you can get more people to read your work, is if the people who have already read your work review it.
On Amazon we’ve all seen those sections underneath books that say, “Customers who viewed this item also viewed. . .” or “Sponsored products related to this item.”
Do you know that the only way to get your book to pop up on those suggested reading links is if your book gets at least 50 reviews. Here’s the cool thing though, it does not have to be 50 good reviews; it can be a mix of good, neutral, and even bad! Yes, of course, we all want the five star review, but even a one star review is helpful in gaining visibility.
Reviews = Visibility
That is why, starting Wednesday, I will begin hosting “Book Review Lotteries” as regularly as I can. During these posts, authors can post their books for consideration. I will choose one book each lottery to read, review, and post on each of my social media sites! Make sure to stop by on Wednesday!
If you have the time and money to do this, I encourage you to host your own Book Lotteries to support your writing community!
