I’ve been pulling out my hair for a year now. What is the best way to get a review? I have become better and better about leaving them myself, because I now realize just how hard it is to get them. I scratch my head and wonder, why is it that so many people are ready to give their opinions, yet book reviews are scarce?
My policy, although I am not a book reviewer and blogger, is for my own personal benefit. I will only review books that have a 4 and 5 star rating in my mind. I don’t want to destroy someone’s online presence just because their book didn’t work for me. If I truly feel like a book is a three star, but I have positive things to say, then I might leave a review. I don’t normally care about grammar either. Did the book capture me or not?
I suppose my point is, leaving a review is the easiest and cheapest way to thank an author for what they do. It will help other customers in their search too. What makes you leave a review and what holds you back?
Lets get out there and show some love to indie and small published authors. Even some of the big guys could use the help.
Incase you didn’t know I have a free read out there too. Sometimes helping out an author doesn’t have to cost a thing.
