Reviewers

 

“A good day is one where I can not just read a book,
but write a review of it.” ~ Christopher Hitchens

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, besides loving what you do, loving books, finding great talent, and having fun, reviews are the lifeblood of publishing and absolute gold to authors. You have no idea how they are appreciated, or then maybe you do. And reviews need not all be “five star,” either. In fact, in the new, digital age of publishing, you, the reader (and you only exist for other readers if you leave behind reviews!) are the new gatekeeper, not selective publishers. Anyone can publish nowadays and there is a lot of good that comes with that, but the job of deciding what’s good and what’s not falls now to you, the reviewer.

As a writer myself, a “friends and family” type of review is of course very nice but they can actually hurt a book’s chances if that’s all one has. Useful reviews that score three to five stars are what all writers and their books need. “Useful” simply means including detail rather than glowing generalities, although they can be included as well. Reviewing today is an actual art and a bit of a science among the public who partake in it, even as professional, paid, respected reviewers are still around, and very useful!

Take for example, TripAdvisor and other ratings systems (like Hotwire’s) you trust and use. Amazon reviews (including book reviews) are no different. As the public gets more and more savvy fake and paid reviews are easier to sniff out.

Your honest and useful review is valuable.

By Amazon rules nothing can be exchanged for a bona fide book review–not money, not another review, nothing–except a free copy of the book being reviewed. I’m happy, as the publisher of the titles on this site, to offer you a free e-book and maybe a print book if you promise to leave an honest and useful review on Amazon. We are currently seeking reviews for the following books, but if you’re interested in reviewing others we might be able to accommodate you as well, just let me know.

And thank you! Reviews mean a lot! –Rodney
