Are you a reader? When you read a book, especially if you like it, do you write a review?Are you also an author? Do you write a review?
As authors we know reviews are important. They may not sell a lot more books, but they trigger algorithms that may give you a better position in a book store (traditional or online). It may help the author to get better paid advertising. There are a lot of reasons we need reviews of our book. Me – I’d like to hear what the reader thought. Did she love it? Did she figure out the killer in the first chapter?
Why don’t you write a review? Maybe you don’t how or figure it will take too long.You can write a short review. It may only take a few minutes. First, give it a rating, usually out of 5. Remember a review should be respectful and honest. Next, in a couple of sentences or less describe the book. Then explain what you liked – characters, plot, and/or setting and perhaps where you found a few challenges, specific to yourself as a reader. If you liked it, maybe recommend it to other readers. That’s it.
Yes, you can write a lengthy review and discuss the characters, motivation, plot, etc in detail which other readers will appreciate, but a short, quick review is always appreciated by the author.
