Supporting your Favorite Authors – Write a Review
My reading tends to be on the voracious side. I read, I finish and start the next book immediately. I ready daily and I read fast.
Until a few years ago, it never occurred to me there was a step in between books.
Sure I sometimes read reviews of books prior to buying them, especially if it was the first book of a series. Once I am hooked on a series, I avoid reviews because I don’t want to mistakenly stumble upon a spoiler.
Why are reviews important? Many reasons. Authors like feedback. Believe it or not, you can have a big impact on what happens in the next their book. Isn’t that exciting! Or you can give the author enough reviews to help him or her meet a requirement for an algorithm that will move the book into more Amazon visibility.
Your review, those twenty-five little words about a book you loved, are appreciated by authors. You should consider it more often.
Remember next time you finish a book. Stop and think. What can you say in twenty-five words about it, that will not only help the next reader, but help your favorite author in a way that very little else can.
Tell me your views on reviews. I will be giving away a copy of Highlander’s Captive or A Different Shade of Blue. Winner’s choice, to one lucky winner!
