Full title: Book Review Secrets For Author Success: How to win great reviews to make your book shine by Barb Drozdowich.

As an indie author who’s been learning the industry for a few years now, one of the questions I most often see from folks who’ve just put their first book out is “How do I get reviews?” Well, if you’re lucky enough to be signed with one of the big publishers, they might do some of the work for you.

Clear, Concise, & Incredibly Helpful

I am a writer and a huge fan of this author's work. Her book, "Blogging for Authors," introduced me to the world of book blogging. She inspired me to get connected to the blogging community as a way to grow my online presence. Developing a platform can be overwhelming and Barb's book series makes it seem less insurmountable. I'm hoping to use these tips she provided to try to try to get some reviews for my own books in the future. I highly recommend this book

I was so happy to see that this new addition to Barb Drozdowich’s series of nine how-to handbooks for authors on self-publishing, promoting, blogging, mailing, and other jobs writers have, now includes this one on how to get those all-important reviews for your books. Authors often sigh over the great need for reviews vs. the great difficulty in snagging them. How to help readers see that writing reviews can be simple and quick? How to entice readers to get our book and then review it, hopefully ...more
