Let me know what you think.
Hey, I have a question ... when someone says they want to review your book, do you wait for them to purchase it, or do you send them free copies ?
If I were you, say something like this if it's something you feel comfortable with, "Sure, I'd love for you to review it, but as of now, I'm only providing ecopies. I would like if you could please post your review on Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Nobles" (where ever your book is at). If it's no where yet, i would hold off a bit.
BUT! I would first give this person a short summary of your book and say, "Is this something you'll enjoy reading?" You do NOT want to send your baby who hates your genre and only loves historicals. Make SURE they enjoy that genre first. another thing is to start looking for published authors who will endorse your book--not someone like your neighbor who may only have credentials in plumbing. LOL
So that is the end of my reply...
If you're an aspiring author, it doesn't hurt to create a plan now! What do you think yours will look like? How have you been handling review requests?
