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:
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Drawn directly from the author’s personal experiences, Hemau is an eye-popping military memoir that turns the reader’s expectations upside-down. Written with dry wit and biting insight, Hemau paints a much darker, more tangled, and ultimately more nerve-wracking picture of the people who defend America than Uncle Sam’s recruitment posters would have one believe. Not for the faint of heart, Hemau is a sharp-edged indictment of deadly force in mindsets unfit to hold it, and utterly compelling from cover to cover.
