Once you’ve published your novel new work begins, different work, the NOT-writing work. Now you need to find readers who will read your baby and review it. But how do you find them?
Ask. Go to Twitter and use the hashtag #BookReviewers. There are plenty available who will be happy to read and review your novel.
But there are professional sites who offer this service too. And they don’t cost money. Yes, I could have begged my friends for reviews, but I wanted reviews from people I didn’t know. CLOSED THE COVER was one of those professional websites that another author referred me to. Ashley, the owner, read my book, tweeted about it, and wrote a review for me. She also recommended my book to others.
Today I’m giving back. I want to tell you about her website because it’s different than others. A portion of all money raised by CTC literary services or by purchasing books through her affiliate links is donated to the literacy charity, Room to Read.
