Book Reviews Made Simple For Authors

Are you an author feeling overwhelmed at the idea of drumming up reviews for your book?

You’ve undoubtedly seen competing titles with double-digit and triple-digit reviews and wondered: How did they do it?

If you want to compete, you know that you need as much social proof as possible, but you’re probably also left wondering:

  • How you can get your book into the hands of reviewers

  • If soliciting reviews will become incredibly time-consuming

  • How to navigate the ethics of review-seeking so that you don’t accidentally misstep

  • Whether editorial reviews are worthwhile

As an author looking to get the word out about your book, it probably feels overwhelming knowing that some way, somehow, you’ve got to takes steps to generate several reviews for your book. But, how?

Well, the good news is that launching a review-seeking campaign doesn’t have to be difficult and it doesn’t mean giving up a massive amount of time.

Plus, once you get your system in place, you should find that a steady stream of reviews begin pouring in with very little additional effort on your part.

But first, you need to learn the steps that you need to take to put this review-soliciting process to work for you.

My Full Disclosure Disclaimer:

As someone who has spent a lot of time in this field, I want to make one thing clear; publishing a book is not a get-rich-quick situation. Hard work is going to be required and any success that you might see is not going to come over night.

Beyond that, the results that I’ve seen are not typical and, because each situation is unique, yours will definitely vary. I’ve invested years’ worth of time and effort into getting where I am today, and I’ve been lucky to experience the results that I’ve achieved.

Not all self-publishers will succeed, and this course does not come with any guarantee as to the results that you might see. Rather, this product is an educational tool that can be used to further your knowledge of the field.

Further, as with any business enterprise, publishing involves risk and, as such, some will succeed while others will fail. Finally, while all testimonials are genuine, they are not offered to imply a guarantee that you will achieve the same results.
