IndieView with indie reviewer, Tomes of the Soul

“Knowing your genre is the key thing when seeking reviews. You need to know who your target audience is and where they look for reviews, and target those sites. When looking at potential review sites look at how often they post, where they post, their layout, the genre(s) they review and which books they give what ratings to. This can provide you with a good indication of whether a review from that site will be of use to you in promoting your work.”

“… the philosophy of Sift: we started to help readers, not writers. Which means we’re not going to pull punches if we don’t like a book. But it also means that the readers can really take our reviews at face value when we say we love a book.”

Indieview with reviewer Debra Martin, at Two Ends of the Pen

“I think people love to get lost in a story and forgot their own problems for a while.  Reading can transport you to so many wonderful places and meet great characters.  I would be terribly sad if for some reason, I couldn’t read anymore.”

Indieview with BigAl, of BigAl’s Books and Pals Reviews

“When I was making the initial plans for the blog this was my biggest struggle. I seriously considered not including ratings at all. Assigning a number to something that can’t be measured seems wrong when you consider how subjective such a rating has to be. I’ve personally made many purchases based on one and two star reviews that described something I would like that the reviewer didn’t.”
