Online Reviewers

I have learned that a big part of the struggle of being an Indie author is getting reviews.  There are certain authors (none that I have read books by) that are terrible for the reputation of all.  People who can take no criticism or people who need to really proofread and edit their work seem to get all the attention and unfortunately for the Indies as a whole it is all negative.  Recently I was contacted by Jennifer from http://hampton-networks.com/ about being shown on her list of reviewers willing to read Indie works.  I was happy to be listed and hopefully some people who are looking for reviewers can find a few more who are willing to read their work.  


There is also a rating system in place to see what blogs are preferred by the people who check them out so I guess here is a chance to review me.  My blog is found at http://hampton-networks.com/indie-book-blog/ 


Hopefully there are some people here that can get all you wonderful authors some more reviews and more positive attention.

  1. It's important for authors to remember that reviews are not designed to be promotional tools for authors. They are a conversation between readers, to help other people make informed decisions about whether or not to buy a book. Once a book is out there, we need to accept that not everyone will love it.

    It is incredibly bad form to argue with a reviewer, and shielding yourself from criticism will not improve your work.
