We authors are so busy busy busy! However, do not ever allow yourself to be too busy to give thanks to those who read your work and take time out of their busy schedules to not only read your work but review it as well.
Said THANK YOU to a reviewer and clicked the LIKE button under their review?
The means to do both is provided by Goodreads and Amazon!
Authors often complain about the lack of reviews for their Bestselling Stories, but how many of you interact with readers who DO leave their reviews?
Having received thank you’s and/or messages from authors about my short, simplistic and unprofessional (but honest) reviews myself, I know how nice it feels (and I deal with authors on a daily basis!).
It may encourage them to read at least one more of your books!
