A Book Review Is A Gift

If you're like me, you've done more and more shopping online. Maybe all of it.

And no sooner do you hit the 'BUY' button than an email arrives asking you to review the product. I bought the product — isn't that enough?

Well, not always. And not when it comes to books. Reviews help an author earn her place in the publishing world. They make platforms like Amazon and Goodreads take notice. And they help readers decide whether or not this is a book they want to read.

I always ask for an honest review. If you didn't like it, say so. Tell me what could've been better. If you liked it — hopefully loved it, tell me that too.

Leaving a review on Amazon is easy, but some readers are hesitant to try it. I thought I'd spell out the steps for you to make it easier. Other platforms will be similar.

* Sign into your Amazon account (or Goodreads or B&N) and find my book.

* Scroll down the page until you find the "Customer reviews" section on the left side of the screen. It's below the Product Details and the other books you might like and the biographical info about me.
You'll find the section that says "Customer Reviews" and the button that says "Write a customer review." Here's how it looks:
* Click on that button and you'll land on a page that says "Create a Review." You can give an overall rating   one to five stars   add a headline  "This is the best book I ever read"   and write your review. You don't have to add a photo.

* When you're ready, click the "Submit" button and you're finished. It may take a day or two for your review to post but it's that easy.

I will be very appreciative of any reviews you leave. And so will every other author.
