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 Silk Box
Shirley Mihoko Hairstonoy
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Even as society scorns them and love seems impossible, something beautiful can flourish. “The Silk Box” is a historical romance set after Japan’s surrender, ending World War II. A black American and a Japanese woman find romance during the occupation, but events put oceans between them. Through vast endeavor, they will find love can survive time and a long journey, even if the world frowns upon them. “The Silk Box” is a charming and heart-warming reading, highly recommended.
