R is for Really

Really?  You read a book that you loved and then didn’t bother to review it. Really?

How will the author ever know how much you appreciated his/her work?

How many other readers will pass the book by because they see too few reviews?

At the end of a play we applaud to show our appreciation of the work.

At  a concert, we scream and yell to show our love for the artist.

We cheer at sporting events to show ou support for the team we want to win, why heck, we even wear sweaters and tee-shirts that announce out love for the team.

So, what are your going to do to show your appreciation for a book you loved?

How about a review? Really. Reviews count. If you thin the author doesn’t read them, you’re wrong. We do. We read every single review and sometimes a bad review tells us what we’re doing wrong…but it also tells us the reader cared enough to take the time to write and post a review. So please…whether you love a book or hate it, share your thoughts in a review on Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes…or your favorite online bookstore. Reviews count…really!

Coral Russell of Bent Pine Publicity knows how important reviews are, that’s why she is currently working on a tutorial to show how to leave a review on Amazon. You rock Coral. Really!



About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
