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 Midwest Book Review:
The Best Investment is Within One’s Self
by Carrie Register-Haley
Publisher: Outskirts Press
My life coaching philosophy is grounded in the understanding that every individual is an innate expert in their own life realization. It is my fundamental belief that you possess the ability, expertise and knowledge to create and embody your own definition of success. Because happiness, self-defined success and peace are all at the core of your being; you just have to learn to invest time into tapping into it. Everyone that is willing to put energy into self-discovery has the capacity to obtain what you want. Since I value a holistic approach to coaching and believe the mind, spirit and body are the three pillars that ground us in our learning process. It is my responsibility as a coach to ask powerful questions to assist with identifying strategies for success, discovering self-empowering techniques, centering for self-discovery, and creating an environment for prosperity. I also believe in holding you accountable for moving towards your goals on the journey to success. So I urge you to contact me along your journey at firstname.lastname@example.org so together we can tap into your potential and bring forth a revelation of investment from this experience. This self-investment guide is designed to get you motivated in self-investment and potential realization. Being a Life Coach is who I am, so I wanted to share what I’ve learned with you. I believe that every person is perfectly imperfect and deserves the best me working to discover the best version of you.
With her emphasis on self-empowerment being accessible to anyone and everyone, Carrie Register-Haley draws upon her years of experience and expertise as a mentor, a coach, a Human Resources Trainer, a Group Counseling Facilitator, a Victim Advocate, and a Back to School Event Coordinator to deftly write a self-help instructional guide that is impressively ‘reader friendly’ in tone, commentary, organization and presentation. Motivating, inspirational, practical, thoughtful and thought-provoking, “The Best Investment Is Within One’s Self: Self-Investment Quick Tip Guide” is a potentially life-changing read that is very highly recommended for community library and counseling center Self-Help/Self-Improvement collections. It should be noted for personal reading lists that “The Best Investment Is Within One’s Self” is also available in a Kindle format ($8.99).
