You’ve published your first book. Congratulations. Self-published or traditionally published, the work is not done. Not yet. If people don’t know about your book, it’s not going to sell. Plain and simple. You could go all out and hire an expensive publicist. You could pay for all kinds of publicity ads and blog tours. You could travel the world at your own expense and do signings and readings. All very expensive options. How about seeking book reviews? Paid reviews or free reviews, the result is the same: more publicity. Quite simply, reviews sell books. But where do you find these book reviewers? Is it fair to ask friends and family?
