As authors, we all know how important reviews are, but have you considered using your reviews to point readers to your own books?
Not in a spammy way, but by reaching out to other authors, we encourage a spirit of repricocity and can make connections that are mutually-beneficial in all sorts of ways.
By reviewing other books within our own genres, we are further establishing ourselves in that genre – as an expert.
You can add ‘Author of …’ to your reviews, to your name on your public profile (on, say, Amazon). Don’t be spammy, just mention that you loved the book you’re reviewing because, as an expert in this field, you know about it.
Book reviews are powerful in more ways than one!
