Authors and Readers, Don't You Just Love 5-Star Reviews! #barrioblues #free #ebooks #Amazon #IndieAuthor
I FINALLY, got my fifth 5-star review of La Bruja in the Orchard. (In case you are interested, the eBook is free through Monday, 4/22.) Many independent writers know how hard it can be to get book reviews. That is why I try to do thorough reviews, every time I read any book. Book reviews are quite easy to post, and they help writers with rankings, which are crucial in this business.
In Goodreads.com, for example, you can just give a book stars. Amazon is a little more nuanced because you have to hit a word limit on the review and offer a header. However, it only takes a few minutes to give a short favorable review. This week, I did a Facebook vlog to show my friends and fans how easy it is to do reviews on both platforms. Hence, my one review. Yay!!!
It may seem like a small thing, but this fifth review will hopefully get my novelette into the LA Public Library. I have a feeling it will make it there; if not, perhaps for the next longer work. I will keep you posted.
Well Authors and Readers, the freebie La Bruja in the Orchard: Mona's Return is calling. That great novelette will be launched May 1, and I will have a virtual release party, Live Streamed on my Facebook Author Wall, from 6p.m. to 6:30p.m. central time. I hope you can join in! Tell your friends about it.
Celebrate your book reviews, and if you like what you've read, give the gift of a positive review! #barrioblues
