Reviewing Books You’ve Read

Today I have a request for all my wonderful readers. Please leave a review!

Word-of-mouth credibility is crucial for any author to succeed. If you’ve read one of my works, please consider leaving an honest review on Amazon, or Goodreads (or any other site where books are discussed).  Next time you’re hanging out, tell your friends what you liked (and  then they’ll tell two friends and so on and so on); personal recommendations are some of the best things out there.

Even if it’s only a line or two, it would make a big difference and would be very much appreciated.  Heck, just click on the star rating and show that you read it – no writing required.

Even if you didn’t like the story, a review helps me improve my craft so I can provide the best stories possible for you.

I have sold quite a few books over the last few years but for some reason hardly anyone leaves reviews online. This might be simple ennui or forgetfulness (I know I’m guilty of it). Even if you don’t want to write a lengthy review (and who really wants to do that?) simply click on the star rating and maybe consider a simple one liner such as:

  • “It was a fun read.”
  • “I think this guy needs a psychiatrist, this story was warped”
  • “It scared my pants off”
  • “I want my mommy!”

Heck I’ll even be happy to see someone write something pithy like:

  • “I use this story to put me to sleep at night because it’s so boring”

Good or bad, I’d love to hear from you. If you’ve read one of my books, consider going to my Amazon author page and leave a review on the appropriate book. You can also leave your review on Goodreads, or Smashwords, the Apple store, or heck even your own blog. Just having it out there is beneficial and helps draw in new readers.

Most of my books on Amazon currently only have 1 or 2 reviews even after hundreds of sales. I challenge my readers to AT LEAST help me get to double digit numbers on each book you’ve read. (BTW do this legally, no reviewing things you haven’t read or purchased, Amazon frowns on that.)

Heck, I’ll even settle for you commenting on your favorite book in the comments of this post. How’s that? You don’t even have to leave this page to help.

Thanks for your time, thanks for reading and I look forward to providing more entertainment for you in the future.
