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:
Cancer: It’s a Good Thing I Got It
David A. Koop
Publisher: Outskirts Press
A silver lining brings triumph to tragedy. “Cancer: It’s a Good Thing I Got It”” tells the story of David Koop, who thought he had the good life until cancer appeared and ultimately made it better. Although it threatened his life, he learned what was really important, and it gave him the strength to overcome. He came out stronger than he would be without the ordeal. “Cancer” is a triumphant and recommended addition to any cancer memoir collection.
