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 Adventures of PJ and Split Pea Volume 1 Fine Feathered Friends
Illustrations by Bobb Switzer
Publisher: Outskirts Press
The Adventures of PJ and Split Pea Volume I Fine Feathered Friends is the first of a series of books for young kids. PJ is a little boy who for so long has been laughed at by other kids. He and his parents go to the pet store to buy an animal for him to pal around with. They pick Split Pea, a talking green parrot. Together, they work to solve problems. What I liked abut this book is how the two characters become great friends. What’s nice is that all ages can read this book and enjoy it. No one is ever too old to like The Adventures of PJ and Split Pea Volume I Fine Feathered Friends.
