Do you know why this is important?
I mean really important?
It helps a writer? Yes, of course. But there is more to it than that.
When we eat out, we leave the wait staff a tip. Even if the service is lousy, we leave a tip. Might be small, but we leave something behind. The staff worked hard to provide the meal, and our tip our acknowledgment. We may never return to that restaurant again, but that’s okay.
The same thing holds true for a book. The author works hard to produce a product for readers to enjoy. Some will enjoy the story more than others, but everyone should leave behind a tip (review.) Short and sweet, or long and eloquent, leave a review it doesn’t matter.
Don’t know what to say? Here’s a tip: read what others have said and to get ideas, to prime your thoughts into your own words.
Don’t have time to write a wordy review? Click on the stars but leave behind that tip with a one or five star review.
What has kept you from leaving a review in the past?
Was it fear? Didn’t like the book? Didn’t know what to say?
Think you could leave a short review now?
