Tips for Writing Book Reviews


Join book launch teams for books you’re interested in. Be an active participant in the group by sharing quotes and graphics on social media. Tag the author so he or she knows you’re promoting and engaging with their work. Think about what kind of response and participation you would appreciate if the tables were turned and you were in the author’s shoes.
