Review your favorite books

Authors really appreciate when happy customers post reviews of their books on Amazon. Here are some tips for posting a book review:

  • Include the “why”: The best reviews include not only whether you liked or disliked a book, but also why. Feel free to talk about related books and how this book compares to them.
  • Be specific: Your review should focus on specific aspects of the book that you like.
  • Not too short, not too long: The ideal length is 75 to 300 words.

If you’re a fan of my books, I would be grateful if you would post a review. Here’s a link to my books on Amazon:
