Book Reviews and The Importance to Self-Published Authors

There’s more to marketing your self-published book than press releases, book tours and social media marketing. These tools are valuable and effective, but don’t overlook the value of “passive” marketing tools, such as book reviews.

As consumers, we rely heavily on word of mouth before we invest our hard-earned dollars in anything – and books are no exception. Readers have millions of choices in books, and they want to choose the right one. What other people say about your book can get potential buyers to take notice.

With that in mind, it’s vital for a self-published author to be seen by the right audience and get that valuable review. Outskirts Press authors who don’t want to do all of the “heavy lifting” themselves can take a simple path; let us do all the work for you with the Book Review Submission Service, which puts your book directly into the hands of 10 book reviewers vetted by Outskirts Press. As always, remember that no one (including the author nor Outskirts Press) has any control over whether the book reviewer chooses to write a review, decides to share a review that is written, or what the review will say (positive or negative).
