One of the fun things about reading and reviewing so many books is that I have been able to meet many new authors. Last week, I ran across this book "How To Get Your Book Reviewed" by Dana Lynn Smith. She has allowed me to read a copy and offer one as a giveaway as well.
This book is a great resource for authors that helps explain how to connect with reviewers and use reviews to boost your newest book. It can be a challenge to get your book noticed amid the hundreds of thousands of new titles published every year. With so much competition, reviews are one of the very best ways to boost book sales.
Why are reviews, endorsements and testimonials so critical to book selling success?
- Book reviews get your book noticed, bringing it to the attention of people who might never have seen it otherwise. Each new review multiplies your exposure.
- Reviews, endorsements and testimonials offer "social proof" — they show potential customers that others think your book is a worthwhile investment of time and money.
- Book review journals have a tremendous influence. In fact, librarians and bookstore buyers base many of their ordering decisions on reviews in the major book journals.
