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:
Whitney J. LeBlanc
Publisher: Outskirts Press
When life’s realities come down on you, the blues sound ever truer. “Bodacious Blues” is a novel following a Louisiana Creole family as they cope with the twists and despairs of their life. From following the wishes of their grandparents to spinning out of control in overcoming racism and the immortality of Hollywood, Whitney J. LeBlanc provides a read with plenty to consider. “Bodacious Blues” is filled with coming of age tales of facing our lives with a strong connection to the blues world.
