Writing a book review doesn’t have to be scary!

Authors often suggest (beg) for readers to write a review of our books. Quite simply, many positive reviews on Amazon, GoodReads, Christian Books, Barnes & Noble, etc. helps to sell our books. Some marketing platforms even require a certain number of reviews or ranking before they will even consider promoting a particular title!

It occurred to me in the wee hours of the morning that it may seem daunting for you to put your name to a written piece if you’ve had no guidelines or instruction in how to write a review. After all, readers may not be writers.

I found a great blog post by UK author, Luisa Playa, that I’d like to share with you this month. She provides a very easy to follow formula for writing an effective book review. I hope you find it helpful and will happily undertake the writing of a positive review for all of my books!




Hopefully you will never want to hit that one star button; you can always find something nice to say about a book. Pretty cover, great characters, scene descriptions… 🙂

    I’ve read most of your books and have never been disappointed in them. You always touch my emotions and so often some of the scriptures or scenes speak to me about something I’ve been praying about. I have always left 5 star reviews on your books. Love your style of writing, and whenever an author touches my emotions (laughter, crying, smiling, sad) I automatically give that book 5 stars. Keep up the good work and letting God speak to your fans through your work.
