I can’t emphasize this enough. Reviews are worth more than gold to authors. Positive reviews equal sales. Especially for the self-published.
When you’re looking for a book to read on Amazon and it sounds good, but you don’t recognize the author, what do you do? You scroll down and check out the reviews. Keeping in mind that not everyone likes the same books, you’re more likely to buy if the majority are favorable.
So, if you’ve enjoyed that book you just finished, leave a review. It doesn’t have to be long. We might not here us say so, but we appreciate it more than you can imagine.
