February is Women in Horror Month, a time to recognize all the women who create wonderful horror stories for your enjoyment. Support women authors this month and always!
This week, a reader left a review on Amazon for my book Freaked Out. It was a great review, which is awesome, but it mentioned points I specifically set out to make as I wrote the book. I thought to myself: YOU GOT IT!!! You understood me! All the rewriting and editing was worth it!
You can’t ask for more than that as a writer. I was very touched and it gave me a boost of confidence I really needed right now.
Although I appreciate each and every review I receive, this was only the second review posted for this book, which was released in 2016. Reviews help books get more attention from readers (and buyers!) and also gives authors feedback on their work. I encourage every reader to review the books you read.
A review on Amazon doesn’t need to be wordy; a paragraph is enough! I love reviewing books I’ve enjoyed. It’s like recommended a new book to the whole world! I’ve always been the kind of person who says, “Oh, have you read this new book?” Sometimes I am sure I drive people crazy, but I love getting suggestions for exciting new reading material.
Do your favorite authors, and your friends, a favor and leave a review! It’s much appreciated!
