Going Beyond “Like”

Beyond “Like”
You’ve finished the book. Kindle asks you to rate it before moving on. You click 5 stars. (As a writer, I hope you do!) But, did you realize other readers never see that rating?
If you really liked the book, take a moment to write a short review. It only needs to be a few sentences, but it can make HUGE difference to the author.

Why? Writers’ careers are made or broken by customer reviews.

Did you know that authors typically need at least 10 four-or-five star review to advertise? To be a featured deal on BookBub, high numbers of four and five-star reviews are a critical part of the selection process.

We’re not talking about 10 or 20 great reviews. Books in the most popular categories need hundreds of top reviews to stand out.

So, lend a hand to authors you like. Finish a book and write a short review. It makes a world of difference.
