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:
Before I Forget
Morayo Olayombo Ruth Luwoye
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Education is taken for granted in America. “Before I Forget: Ola Goes to School” is a memoir from Morayo Olayombo Ruth Luwoye who shares her life’s struggles and how her desire to seek education drove her forward, through poverty. Driven by her faith in God, she shares her life’s challenges of growing up in Nigeria. Moving with charming illustrations throughout, “Before I Forget” is a strong addition to any international memoir collection.
