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:
Tears of the Phoenix
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Outcasts can find alliance in each other. “Tears of the Phoenix” is a novel of this young struggle, as Lonnie Beerman tells of three youths, who after a violent incident, come together, and face a town full of hate and bigotry. Through the worst of challenges, they find friendship and family against all odds. “Tears of the Phoenix” is a fine read and much recommended for general fiction collections.
