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:

the fuel for the future

Carbaviud The Fuel For The Future

Cindy Fleck Howlett

Publisher: Outskirts Press

ISBN: 9781432769017

I was excited to read this book. It was a confident feeling knowing that the author, Cindy Howlett, has been a nurse for thirty years. Certainly, she has knowledge in this area that I would want to know.

I am pretty well versed on carbohydrates, but the information in this book boasted my knowledge. Like eating protein helps burn fat (page 9); I did not know that.

The illustrations that were used throughout the book brought a clearer picture of what she was talking about and definitely enhanced the read. My grand-daughter actually picked up the book and read and enjoyed it without any influence. It’s hard to find an author who can successfully teach different age groups with the same format.

I recommend this book. It’s not a long read, but it sure is packed full of useful information to use for yourself and your loved ones. Very well done.
