What the buyers say (Verified Purchases)
5 star

"What Abbott does is teach you...yes, she teaches you to write a one-word review and proceed on to another word, a sentence, and then another sentence...until you have a full paragraph! Let's face it, no matter what you, the reader, is interested in, there is going to be a book about it to enjoy or learn from. Why not take a few minutes to thank the writer of that book as soon as you have finished reading." Glenda Amazon Reviewer January 30, 2016

5 star

"How to Write a Simple Book Review is a wonderful, concise book to do just that, write a book review, for beginners or those wanting to improve their review skills. The book has formal, semi-formal, and informal guidelines. Templates are great! Star guide lines and how to vary it to suit yourself. Lots of tips and techniques. Lists of reviewer links and pages to encourage interaction. I thought it was a great book!" Kindle Customer December 31, 2015

5 star

Abbott's book about providing book reviews motivated me to write this first Amazon book review. So mission accomplished! I rely heavily on book reviews to decide which books to invest my time due to a year 2016 resolution to not waste unnecessary time on books that I dislike. Therefore, writing book reviews is my way of paying the favour forward.

I love that Abbott invested a great proportion of the book on reassuring that there is no fixed format for books. The persuasion is extremely subtle and plods the reader along in a non-intrusive manner. However for those readers who require further structure, she highlights further discrepancies between the different types of reviews (literary criticism, book report and book review). Further guidelines and template act as further handholds to ease the newbies into the role.

Naturally, I recommend this to all readers who are beginners to reviewing books. However it might not be suitable for more experienced reviewers who are looking for something to distinguish their reviews from others. Bubbsykat August 1, 2016

About the Author:

Thank you for buying my book and reading as far as this. As I am fairly new at being an author, I am always humbled when someone reads my words. Every book I write takes many hours and days to put it together, and get it to the publishing stage. I still get a thrill when I see my books on Amazon and other eBook stores. It was only after publishing my second romance book that I realised, although I was building a following for my books, those readers were not leaving reviews. It took me until after my third book to realise that reviews are the most important factor in an author’s success, providing crucial feedback, helping with sales and increasing exposure. I talked to friends and family and asked a lot of other people who read lots of books, if they left reviews when they had finished a book, as well as, if they understood the difference between an Indie Author and a Contracted Author. I was shocked to find that I was the only person within my circle of friends and family that left reviews. The most common answer was ‘I have no idea where to start’ and I was very surprise to discover that most had little, or no idea about the Indie Author movement, even though they knew I wrote books and am an independent author. I have to admit that, as I travel a lot, it was not something we sat down at the table to discuss, but I realised that there must also be a lot more people out there who do not know how to write a review or understand the importance of reviews for authors. I certainly didn’t until I became an author. So, to help put a tiny bit of the ‘world to rights’, where I can, I dedicated some hours, days and weeks to write and publish this book. It is only my opinion and it is not a bible for review writing, but it may just help or encourage more readers to write reviews and therefore help authors to develop and gain a presence in a very competitive area. I am happy to discuss this, or any of my other books, or answer questions. Please feel free to contact me
