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:

because I said so

Parenting is a complicated endeavor because there are so many ways to do so. “Because I Said So: A Discussion on Parenting Styles and Achievement Gaps” is a solid guide for parents. Dr. Charlotte Rainey Green offers her advice on how to craft one’s own personality as an authority figure in the child’s life, leading to more home based harmony, with a particular focus upon academic accomplishments. “Because I Said So” is an insightful and much recommended read for parents who want to bring out the best in their children.
