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:
Queen Vernita Visits the Islands of Enchantment
Publisher: Outskirts Press
In this book, there is a person named Queen Vernita. She goes to a place called the Islands of Enchantment. In this place, she has a different person come and visit her every month for a whole year. Every time someone visits they learn something every day of the week.
My favorite part was when David came to visit her, and they learned about sharks. I learned that there are 440 species of sharks in the ocean. I learned that the great white shark gets to be 12 to 16 feet long. I also like learned about eels. They can get to 10 feet long. They can weigh 100 pounds! That is a big eel!
“Queen Vernita Visits the Islands of Enchantment” is good if you want to learn about things in the ocean. I learned a lot of new things by reading it. I liked how they had something new to learn every day of the week.
