How To Write a Book Review on Amazon
DRIVING THE BIRDS
When I wrote my first review on Amazon, I was stressed. Therefore, I understand why some people, who have told me they loved DRIVING THE BIRDS, have never written a review.
Amazon reviews influence DRIVING THE BIRD sales.
Around 20-25 reviews, Amazon includes the book in “also bought” and “you might like” lists. Around 50-70 reviews, Amazon spotlights it. This is huge!
But, I’m no good at writing a review. What do I say?
The great thing about an Amazon review is that you can click a star rating and then write a couple of sentences (at least 20 words) about the book. Reviews may be simple or long and expressive. Here are some ideas about what you might put in a review: (You can include the name of the book and the author’s then you’re down to 15 words!)
- Adjectives that describe the book: Great, Good, Awful, Sad, Happy, Inspiring, Uplifting, Amazing, Emotional, Well Written (my personal favorite), A Must Read, etc.
- Say something you liked about it: the overall story, a particular scene or person, a moment that really impacted you.
- Don’t be afraid to be honest. Do be helpful. You’re not being graded.
Creating Your Review.
