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 Fran Shaw
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Church Plays is a God given book which is comprised of 21 short plays and skits. Each play is ministering and entertaining while delivering a profound message. It will make you laugh and cry. This book will bless the readers, performers and the directors. You won’t be able to put it down and will never be the same. A few of the titles are ‘You Had Better Praise Him] (A young man with a drinking problem at the end of his rope is visited by the Devil), ]Pearls] (A single lady is beguiled by Mr. Casanova later finds out she is pregnant and HIV+), ‘God I Ain’t Mad At You’ (A mother loses her child to cancer), and ‘The Christmas Star’ (An old homeless bag lady brighten Christmas for a mother and her three children). Although this book is titled Church Plays, any audience will enjoy these delightful heart felt plays. These plays are a must see and the book is a must read.

A favorite! Ms. Shaw’s plays were very inspiring and had a realistic perspective on matters that we are currently experiencing. There were a variety of plays that could easily be used not only in churches, but in various settings. A great read!!!
