How To Get Amazon’s Top Customer Reviewers To Review Your Book | The Creative Penn

Here’s a site touted as the most followed site by writers.  I found it because I get emails regularly from a publish-yourself publisher who posts her work.  I don’t use the publisher, but I have learned a lot from their various articles.  I have to study this site closer myself and follow-up.  Getting professional-type reviews without paying a fee is very difficult, especially for the self-published author.

If you want to laugh…I sent an email to the New York Times to get my book on their long list of requested reviews.  It’s been a couple of months and I’m still waiting.

I’ve sent a PDF copy to a reviewer living in Germany.  It could be months before he got to it.  I’m hoping this will be the one worth waiting for.

In the meantime, I have a couple of friends with professional attitudes whose reviews will certainly prove worthy.

It’s the wait that’s stressful.  Amazon requires so many reviews, at least twenty-five, before anything begins to happens.  I’m still counting down…slowly, very slowly.
