Have you had the opportunity to read Brothers in Service – Through Thick & Thin, yet – the second book in the Beyond the Badge series? If so, what did you think? Did you enjoy it? I really hope so! The story of best friends Riley Sullivan, Jeremy Ennis and Cade Marshall is one of relationships on many levels. The novel has its humorous as well as intense moments. There’s also action and then there’s romance. There’s a little something in it for everyone! And I’m very happy to say it’s getting some very powerful reviews.
As an author, it is mainly up to me to market and promote the book, something that doesn’t come easily for me. One of the most important aspects of marketing a newly-released book (or any book for that matter), is getting reviews. How hard can that be you might think. An individual reads your book, loves it and if you’re like me, you want to tell the world about it so others can have the same enjoyable reading experience you did. Easy – right? Well, no – actually not. While some find leaving a review simple, to the majority of others it’s a bit of an intimidating undertaking.
Most people fall in the latter category. There are a number of reasons for this. Everyone is busy and it’s just too much to undertake “just one more thing.” And if you don’t leave a review as soon as you finish the book, it’s hard to remember to go back and do it. And a biggee – it’s intimidating to come up with what to say. But do you know what’s really interesting? When people talk about my book – whether it’s to me in person, a comment on Facebook or other social media or in an email, THAT’S the perfect thing to put into a review comment! Boom – done!!
Amazon is just one location to post a review. There are also Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, BookBub and any other places where people go to look for their next book to read. Any of these sites are great and all reviews are GREATLY appreciated!
