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:
The Complete Mystery of Matthew Alcott
Publisher: Outskirts Press
The mind of Joseph Smith has been debated much, by both Mormon and non-Mormon alike. “The Complete Mystery of Matthew Alcott” is a mystery surrounding the early time of the Mormon faith and the pursuits of Joseph Smith and his early circle of Brigham Young and Matthew Alcott, his historian. Michael Oborn creates a novel that explores the potential of Alcott to rebel and release a tell all history of the period, free from meddling from above. “The Complete Mystery of Matthew Alcott” is a strong pick for those who are seeking a bit of religion blended in with mystery and thriller.
