The Whole Megillah in One Place
Everyone knows you can go to Amazon and Goodreads to see the reviews and ratings that readers have given your book. What about the reviews that are written on blogs that don’t get moved over to Amazon or Goodreads? Isn’t a rating on Goodreads or on a blog a review of sorts? Of course, it is. How about interviews on blogs? When they first appear on a blog, they may come to the attention of blog readers, but unless they show up on a Google search, they are probably lost to the random reader or buried in the slush pile. On Goodreads, readers oftentimes give only a rating, and these are separated from the reviews, so interested readers need to go looking for them, or may never see them.
A listing of all of your reviews, interviews and ratings can be impressive to potential readers of your work, and be the basis for a purchase. Readers who see only reviews or ratings that appear either on Amazon or Goodreads, not together, can underestimate the extend to which you have been reviewed. In some instances, the number of reviews that you have is more important to readers than the reviews themselves.
A List to Click On
I have put together a listing of all of the reviews, ratings and interviews pertaining to my thriller novel A Bridge to Treachery, with links to the publications they appeared in. It makes it easy for readers to see the breadth of Treachery’s exposure, and to follow links straight to the original source. Here it is: Reviews, Interviews and Ratings.
