Great post! I will have to use some of the same methods now that I’m rocking on the book promo again. 🙂
I’ve had some people asking how I got so many quality reviews on Amazon and Goodreads for my first self-published novel, Monsters All the Way Down. It took a long time, so I’m not sure my approach was the most effective. But I’m happy to share, and I’d love to hear your own advice and comments.
I got reviews from three primary sources:
- Word of mouth
- Book bloggers
- Amazon reviewers
Word of Mouth
If you’ve ever written anything, you know how flattering it is when people tell you they enjoyed it. Whether it’s in person, on Facebook, or on Twitter, it makes my day every time. I try to follow up my heartfelt thank-you by asking them to review the book on Amazon and Goodreads.
Don’t be a jerk about it; no one wants to be annoyed into reading your book, and that goes double for posting a review…
