How often do you purchase something on Amazon and then after a decent amount of time you get an email from them asking if you would like to post what you think of the product?

I get these emails all the time and usually try to respond by doing a short review, as it helps other customers with their decision whether or not to buy the product.

Authors are especially grateful for any comments that their readers find time to make. Actually, it only takes a moment and you don’t need to give a long in depth review.

If the word “review” puts you off, don’t worry. You don’t have to be an expert at reviews. Your grammar doesn’t even have to be perfect! All you need to post are your honest comments about the product. This can be as short or as long as you wish.

Do bear in mind though with book reviews that there is a human being at the other end of the review. As my old mentor Jan Valpy used to tell her writer’s group, when doing a critique remember to be kind to the soul of the writer!
