To the Lonely Writer: Need a Review for Your Book?

By Remy Benoit

To the Lonely Writer

Writing a book is sometimes the easy part of becoming an author. The real work comes in marketing your work and making enough sales to at least cover your costs.

The foundation of your marketing plan should be obtaining reviews. Reviews give you social proof that your book is worth the investment of the reader’s time and money. Reviews of a pre-published manuscript can also save the author the heartbreak of discovering his/her writing needs more tuning after the book is bound and sent to market.


Obtaining reviews beyond friends and family is a frustrating and sometimes expensive endeavor. Readers say they will write and post a review, but many times the task goes wanting.

Writer’s Review was conceived to bring authors together to read, review, and post reviews. This syndicate will also benefit from marketing tips, outstanding ways to get your book noticed, and other important information and services.

Please visit Writer's Review. for more information. You will find a sign up form and complete description of what the effort is all about.

To your writing success.
