Book bloggers and reviewers appreciate one-on-one connection with the authors. Many of these people are what you could call book geeks. They love to connect with authors and do not want to connect with a middleman. That takes all the fun out of it for them. They blog on their own time, they are not paid to do so, and so it is part of the pleasure for them to connect directly with authors. Remember that they are in this for the passion, and that you are in this for the long haul. If the blogger likes the first book in your series and reviewed it favorably, then you can offer them the next book in the series, and the following one, and so on.


In this course we will cover how to get reviews from book bloggers. They are people who love to read and have started their own blog or video blog, are active on social media, and love to connect with authors.


This course does not cover how to get industry reviews from such publications as Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, newspapers, or magazines.




This course is also for you if:

  • You’re a DIYer. (Do-It-Yourself-er)
  • You want to connect with these types of bloggers.
  • You want to develop relationships that will help you for your entire author career.



With reviews from bloggers, you’ll not only get more attention on your books, you can also generate more good juju for yourself by praising the bloggers in public — which many of them welcome.

For example:


Prerequisite For This Course

  • A finished book or near finished book
  • A polished blurb/book description
  • Finished, professional looking book cover


By the time you’ve finished this course, you’ll have all the pieces in place to run your own review campaign.
