Finding readers is hard enough. Getting them to write reviews is even harder.
But sometimes, it’s because they don’t know what to say. Here are some tips for writing reviews that you can share with them.
1. Are the stars important?
YES! More people look at the star rating than read the review, so the number of stars you give A&E really matters.
2. How long does my review have to be?
It’s okay if your review is super short! Even a sentence or two is fine. Reviews are one of the most important things an author needs to be successful, so I really appreciate your time.
3. What should I write?
All I ask for is honesty! Here are some possible questions you could answer:
- What did you like about my memoir? A favorite part?
- What message stood out to you the most or touched your heart?
- Who do you think should read it?
4. Where do I write /post the review?
Scroll down on the book page (insert your book page on Amazon here) and leave your review!
