I hope you enjoyed this guide on how to get book reviews. It seems pretty straight forward, but can be a little time consuming…but as most authors will tell you, getting your book reviewed can be a powerful metric that should have a positive effect on your kindle sales.
Besides the quality of the book, what’s important in getting your book reviewed is the timing. Review journals will only consider reviewing books that have not already been published; they want to vet books that are not yet available, books that are not yet in the marketplace. What that means for you as a publisher is that you must be sure to get your advance galleys (the bound book without the final cover) to reviewers well in advance of the official publication date when the finished book will be available, usually at least three to six months earlier.

Later chapters cover other avenues for getting your books reviewed, and for generating publicity more generally. There are chapters looking at virtual reader communities (e.g. ), book review blogs, book trade journals, newspapers and other print media, and so on. Even creating audio and video reviews gets a mention, and some useful resources for doing this are revealed.
