I had a very proud mom moment the other day when my fourteen-year-old left a positive review for a book he had read and enjoyed. If you aren’t a writer, you probably don’t think much about leaving a review after you’ve read a book. However, reviews are so important for authors. Leaving a review on Amazon, Goodreads (or even better, both!) can help an author in a few ways:
- Reviews encourage others to want to buy and read the book
- Reviews help authors get into promotional offers like BookBub
- Reviews make authors happy (especially the good ones)
So next time you complete a book, please think about leaving a review. The author will appreciate it.
