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:

Here’s what some other reviewers are saying:
I think it is very detailed. I love their expressions in the book and it is really funny and serious; at points my son actually likes it too cause they’re talking about wizard school and I think he thinks it reminds him of Wizards of Waverly Place in a way, so he has been wanting me to read it more and more and I am enjoying it so far, and I usually don’t read books but this one I must say is very funny and serious and is really well. I hope you guys enjoy it; I’m only on page 52 but I’m a mom taking care of a boy by myself, so, but he has been showing interest in the book and he’s only 6yrs . I hope you guys check it out and buy it I know I’m glad I did 🙂

No one likes to be used, as tempting as it can often seem. “The Silver Moon” is a novel of fantasy, following third year wizard Sadie Wheaton as she finds that she has her own special magical talents, but there are those who want to use her for their own selfish purposes, and Sadie must confide in her friends to keep her will her own. “The Silver Moon” is a riveting read for young adult fantasy readers, much recommended.
