We’ve all heard the comparison between opinions and bodily orifices. While it is true everyone has both, I would like to talk to you about your opinion, for the other please see a medical professional. As an independent author, your opinions mean a great deal to me. What did you like? What didn’t you like? Your general thoughts on the book are very valuable. I would ask that you take the time to share these thoughts on Amazon, goodreads, or any other social reading group that you may be a member of.
I ask this, because reviews (aka opinions) help other readers determine if they might enjoy a book or not. Even a less than stellar review can assist people in making their choices. If I’m sitting the fence about a book, I’ll generally read some of the reviews and then make a decision. Plus, your reviews let me know what you thought of the book. I can’t say every author reads the reviews, but I do and I know several other authors that do as well.
Getting genuine feedback is important, if you didn’t enjoy the book, why? This information can help to forge a better writer. I won’t lie either, the more reviews a book has the higher the visibility of that book on certain websites. If you’ve read my books, please leave a review. If you have no intention of reading my books, but you’ve read a book recently leave a review. Opinions, while everyone may have them, yours is unique to you and can provide feedback and insight that an author needs.
Thanks for reading and keep checking back to see what I’m up to.
