I’m an independently published author, meaning I don’t have the money and might of a large publishing house behind me. One of the ways a writer like me can stand out in a very large crowd is through good reviews.
These are so helpful for three reasons:
They help persuade people it’s worth taking a risk on an author they may never have heard of before
Amazon uses them to help decide where to place my book in their search results and whether they should recommend it to their customers
Book promotion websites use them to decide if my book are decent
AND (very importantly to me) I love reading them (even those that aren’t four or five stars)
Thank you in advance, I can’t wait to share my next story with you!
