Everyone in the book publishing world knows that it’s important to get book reviews. Good and bad, reviews help bring awareness to the availability of new books. But how does an author obtain these reviews? Does one have to pay to have a review done of their book? Is paying for a review the best way to receive an honest review? Or, perhaps there are some reviewers out there who would be willing to review your book for free. But how does one find them? And, once you find a possible reviewer, how do you approach them?
T. Buburuz’s little book, Supercharge Your Book Sales with Unbiased Reviews, is a handy tool for authors. Complete with some suggestions on how to find and contact free book reviewers, the author leads you through the process, pointing out mistakes often made by authors seeking reviews and how to best approach a potential book reviewer. Two key points to T. Buburuz’s thesis: free and unbiased. Authors, both indie and traditional, are besieged with enough expenses in the process of promoting their books, they don’t need added expenses in obtaining book reviews. Besides, the very notion of paying for a review suggests to those reading the reviews that the content of the review is not genuine, not unbiased. An added bonus to this guide is a list of more than fifty-five good, reliable, unbiased and free book bloggers who might consider reviewing your book. Lots of excellent, helpful information in this compact little book.
