We know that Amazon wants your opinions to be heard. However, sometimes authors have paid for fake reviews or even created them under false identities. Whatever your thoughts on this type of thing, be sure that having great reviews can help your book sell.
“Lots of people are trying to make money by exploiting writers” – says Michele Gorman , “(…) But a writer’s best chance of success is to write good books that lots of people honestly enjoy. Taking shortcuts by paying for fake reviews cheats readers. It cheats our own integrity. And it damages the reputation of the vast majority of book bloggers whose only payment is a free book in return for an honest review.”
Personally, I consider reviews to be critical in the sales process; comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping me continue to enhance my knowledge, my communication skills to talk about math and physics and in words that everyone can understand.
I am hopeful that my book has helped you enjoy learning. I am extremely grateful to have been given this opportunity and I have no idea what’s going on in … reviews!
