Reviews, reviews, reviews

This month’s topic — reviews. Love them, hate them, how to get them.

I love to get reviews; that way I know that people are reading my books. I’d be delighted to get more of them. However, I’m as guilty as anyone for frequently reading and loving a book — I’m a voracious reader, and I’m rarely without a book to read — and neglecting to post a review.

What motivates you to post a review? What would it take for you to post more of them?

    I also forget to leave reviews on sales sites like Amazon for the books I read. Probably because I read at night in bed and by the time I wake up I have other things on my mind. I guess I should try harder.

    The only books I sometimes fail to review is the occasional one printed on dead trees. Most of my reading is electronic, so it’s easy: a click or two, and I can rave on.

    When a book really knocks me head over heels, I’ll hurry to write a review. Usually I make an attempt to at least write a sentence or two, because as an author I know how much that would mean to me!

    I write reviews for a fair proportion of the books I read, however, where a book is a best seller and already sports 100+, I don’t see the point. I feel my own work has been frustrated a bit by people not posting. Friends and relatives will tell one how much they liked it, but often will not type it up. Therefore, I am hugely grateful to those who did. anne stenhouse

    If I like a book, I’ll leave a review. I make it a point of leaving reviews because I know how important they are. I wish I had more people who reviewed my books, too. It’s hard to find reviewers. 😦

    I try to write reviews especially for eBook authors and new authors. I know many people depend on them and Amazon insists on them. I know hard it is to get people to write a review.
