Like most authors, I am learning new things about the publishing industry every day and try to share what I learn here, in the hope it helps other writers, book lovers and bloggers. I have been looking at keywords and good ways to use them, but had no idea that reviews count as keywords too!
A lovely read. I enjoyed the characters immensely and the way the author used description really drew me in. This is a book I would recommend to friends as I couldn’t wait to get back to my kindle to read the next chapter!
(Reviews literally take 5 minutes to write and 2 sentences is plenty, although a detailed description is wonderful too. They are the first place readers look to discover a new read and are really helpful to both author and reader.)
Review 2: A review from one of my readers about my contemporary romance novel Babe Driven. This made me feel like dancing around my studio!
I was recommended this book by a friend… Initially I was a little unsure as I am very loyal to Freya North & Lisa Jewell... I’m a bit of chick lit fan!!!
By the end of the first chapter I was completely gripped…
This is a really compulsive read and not easy to put down; but quite light hearted.
The characters are really fun, engaging and believable.
I am really looking forward to the authors next Novel… Give it a go!!!!
I’m have no idea if the reviewer, (19/03/2015), knew how helpful this was and I certainly didn’t until this week, but the words in colour are keywords as they relate to popular authors and genres. I have seen that some books put best selling author’s names in their blurb, but I have read this is not advised as online retailers don’t like it, (the authors probably don’t either!)
I loved this mystery novel as it involved romance, intrigue and travel. The characters were so well written that I couldn’t wait to turn the next page! I usually enjoy reading books by LJ Ross and Blake Pierce, but the vivid descriptions and excellent dialogue have turned me into a (authors name) fan!
I hope this helps. I am an avid reader of so many genres and I always leave reviews unless I don’t like the book. I love to find books by authors I’ve never heard of before, as reading their work is an adventure. Most authors spend so many hours perfecting their stories, that if I read, enjoy and become a fan of their work, I like the idea that my review can support them on their journey.
