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 on whether to buy the product or not.

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 book. This can be as short or as long as you wish.

Do bear in mind though with book reviews that the author will probably read your review. As my dear old author friend and mentor Jan Valpy used to tell her writers’ group - “when doing a critique remember to be kind to the soul of the writer!”
