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
I was impressed with this collection of poems by author Erik Hansen. His words were rich in deep meaning from within. Some of the poems use wild life such as Visitors, the Hummingbird. Others such as “Fear” reach into our own soul. That poem definitely was inspired. I also especially enjoyed the poem “Spring.” Closing my eyes and thinking of the words, I could smell the flowers and see the rainbows. I enjoyed this collection, and I believe you will as well.
