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:
Abe’s Lucky Day
Illustrations by Kalpart
Publisher: Outskirts Press
“Abe’s Lucky Day” is the first kid’s book I’ve encountered to have as its main character a person who is homeless. Warren and artist Kalpart illustrate very well the statement “What goes around comes around” with Abe, who even though he is homeless, thinks more of others than himself. By the end of the book, something positive happens to him that bears out the statement. “Abe’s Lucky Day” is an affirmative message for readers of all ages.
