Second week of August already, I feel sorry for the people holidaying in Britain as even though it is not cold we have had a lot of rain with weather alerts for this week again. The grandchildren keep asking when are we going to the beach or outdoor swimming pool or the fountains and I keep saying there is no sun and if there is some sun it does not last long. I am sure they would go anyway but it’s just not as enjoyable for the adults sitting shivering on the beach.
I have been very productive today though as written two book reviews on all my sites, it would be so much easier if I just copy and past them all but I feel a bit awful if I don’t write something a bit different. I can understand now why authors are always asking for reviews as many readers just do not bother.
What ever you think of the book then write it. It can be as long or as short as you want it to be. You can do it in sentences or bullet points. Authors love to get feedback from their readers and will often connect with them on social media.
WHERE TO REVIEW
Authors Facebook or Twitter Goodreads http://goodreads.com Amazon http://amazon.co.uk Google+ Pinterest, I have made a board about books I have read.
So there are many ways we can all support our wonderful writers that we have now and the ones that are just publishing their first book would be so happy to receive some feedback from their readers.
I hope that makes it a bit less daunting for some and to be honest before I started blogging I never even thought about writing a review.
I am just about to start my next book which is by Carol Wyer, I am looking forward to this as it is another one in the series about DI Robyn Carter.
I am looking after Alfie in a couple of weeks for a long weekend, he is crazy for Minecraft and very clever at it. So we are going to read all about Pixelville by Daniel Riding which is a new book that was released last month, I will then get Alfie to review it as well as myself.
I guess I had better go and do some gardening before the weeds take over everywhere, I would much rather be reading or writing though. I have done a lot of planning for my Jersey trip and decided that I will pop over to Guernsey while I am there as never been there before, so lots to look forward to and I really cannot wait.
