Writing Book Reviews As An Author: Inspiration To Make It Easier




Goodreads already has reviews!

Writing Book Reviews As An Author: Inspiration To Make It Easier has reviews on Goodreads

Who would want to read this book the most?
Authors who don’t write book reviews and are ready to change that.
I was one of those authors a few years ago. And I decided I didn’t like that about myself, that I didn’t support my fellow authors by writing book reviews. So I researched how to do, read a lot of reviews (well-written and not), and came up with a way to consistently write them well. The book isn’t about becoming a professional reviewer. It’s a series of prompt-style inspirations written in easy-to-remember acronyms that, with practice, makes allows one to write a solid review in about fifteen minutes.

Book publish date: MARCH 26 2019
This is my 2019 A to Z Challenge theme and book. There will be samples from the book on this blog in April. I expect readers of this blog will learn quite a bit. I can’t cover everything in an alphabet of posts though!

Book’s genre: Reference – Craft of Writing

A brief description of the book:
This book aims to provide inspiration to encourage people to write more book reviews. It is written for authors, though any reader can benefit.

#quote #excerpt #book #title After reading the book, did the title make sense? Some readers enjoy finding the title inside the book. The “ah-ha” moment of figuring out where the title comes from can be very meaningful. Does the book live up to the title? Writing Book Reviews as an Author @JLenniDorner

Why will I take part in the A to Z Challenge the year that your book is “given life”?
It’s the ten year anniversary. I’m very excited to be a co-host of the A to Z Challenge. This is an incredible community.

Why did I start blogging?
This is answered in my very first blog post.
“You may wonder why I started a blog. I may wonder that too! Actually, this blog was started because I heard about the A to Z challenge from some NaNoWriMo friends.”

What other books do you have available?

What motivates me to write book reviews?
I feel that it’s an important way to give back to the community of readers and authors. It’s a simple gift that costs only a few moments of time.
How about you, readers of this post? What motivates you to write book reviews? Or, if you don’t write them, what deters you?

  2. I would never have thought to write a book on this subject but it’s a great idea! I always struggle to assimilate what I liked a book in a short space. I’ll look forward to the A-Z.

    1. I think a lot of authors do. It takes me about 15 minutes to write a review. I figured it would make a good subject. Hopefully what you learn here in April will help.
