Book reviews are a great way for self-publishing authors to gain exposure. After all, how can someone buy your book if he or she doesn’t know it exists? Paired with other elements of your book promotion strategy, requesting reviews is a great way to get people talking about what you’ve written.
When we read good reviews, we definitely like to share them. It gives the author a few (permanent) moments of fame and allows us to let the community know about a great book. Here’s this week’s book review by Midwest Book Review:
Modern Day Gettysburg
Lisa C. Phillips
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Modern Day Gettysburg: A Portrait of the Most Famous Little Town in America takes the reader on a journey of the town of Gettysburg. She talks about the role it played in the Civil War, and she shows that there is more to the area than the War between the States. She shows how close it is to other big cities in several bordering states and in Pennsylvania. She talks about famous people who have lived there, and there are so many colorful pictures that add to the feel of the book. The writer has done a great job showcasing the area as an attraction. The book makes you want to go and visit.
