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:
Cramer Louis Jackson
Publisher: Outskirts Press
It is often said that good things come in small packages and this certainly is the case with this read. In the beginning we meet Joe, a man on a mission. Joe is out of work, and despite all his attempts to find a job, he keeps failing. However, good fortune is about to smile upon him as he receives a mysterious email offering him an opportunity for work, but it is cloaked with mystery. Joe is hesitant at first, but his desperate situation pushes him to respond and from that moment on, his life will never be the same. Joe is thrust into a world he never dreamed truly existed and the job that he must undertake will bring him into a realm that even Science Fiction Writers could never pen, but for Joe it is real. Here he finds adventure, and true love. For Joe, his journey is just beginning.
I really enjoyed this read; it definitely was not a storyline that I had encountered before. The character Joe can easily be identified with in our world today, and you will find yourself smiling at the good fortune that has come his way. It is ‘out of this world’ adventure, well packaged in a warm storyline that draws you right in and keeps you reading until the end. Very well done, and I am pleased to recommend it.
