Curious how your book might fare in the marketplace? A book review can help. If you want to gauge the interest of potential readers, one of the best ways to find out is to have your work evaluated by the experts.
But first, what is a book review?
A professional evaluation of a work based on content, style, and merit
Includes a brief description of the book’s key points
Provides a critical appraisal of its strengths and weaknesses
Tells you what a book is about and also how successful it is at what it’s trying to do
How can your book benefit from this service?
There are two ways your book review can go: you can get a nod of approval or receive constructive criticism on areas that need improvement. No matter what rating you get, there are benefits to both types of feedback.
A Good Rating
An expert’s stamp of approval can be an effective way to spread credibility about your book and writing
Positive reviews can pique the attention of readers, bookstores, and even libraries and entice them to buy or stock your book
A Not-So-Good Rating
Constructive feedback provides you with useful pointers on how you can hone your writing craft
If you decide it’s in the best interest of your book to undergo a revision, you can use the objective review to help you improve its overall quality
