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, courtesy of the Midwest Book Review:
The Rocky Road of Love
by Vernon Hosannah
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Are you ready for an outing with our favorite two organic materials, Rocky and Sandy? Rocky is a large boulder-a strong, silent type with rugged, chiseled features-who lives by the water’s edge. Sandy is a lovely tropical coast, a free spirit who is always changing. The Rocky Road of Love is the humorous tale of how Rocky and Sandy meet, fall in love, and weather the storms of life. It’s an enjoyable read for both children and adults, who will each will take something away from the experience..
