Book reviews really help both authors and readers. The numbers look good and can even help your favorite author get his or her next book contract.
How do you write a review?
You don't have to write anything long. It can just be a sentence or two, even. All you have to do is say what you thought about the book. It's as simple as that.
If you want to go for a longer review, you can mention what the book is about, and specific things you liked or made you think. Some people break it down into sections like the plot, the characters, the setting, and the writing.
I personally recommend not reviewing a book if you did not like it.
So, what do you do once you have a review written?
Post it everywhere. Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, and any other cite you can think of. If you have a blog, post it there. Post the link to your review on all social media sites.
Read another book! :)
On a side note, I ask that if you have read (and hopefully enjoyed) Swept to Sea, that you would please post a review of it. Thank you! :)
Have you written a book review before? Do you plan to?
