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:
H. Trussell Pyle
Publisher: Outskirts Press
The web of the drug trade runs deep. “Charlie’s Hoot” is a novel of a small Florida resort town and the web of crime that lurks deep within the town. A mob boss brother is urged by his religious sister to go straight, and the corruption that plagues the town digs deeper. As a cop works with a technical ace to break the drug ring, “Charlie’s Hoot” proves to be a suspenseful thriller of crime, family, and the punishments that go towards those who seek to do right.
