Professional Book Reviews Available

By: Lois Bennett, PhD

Successful authors are aware that having their books reviewed by professional reviewers is an important aspect in helping to build their brand as an expert in their field as well as bringing their books to the attention of the reading public. Accolades by family and friends are nice and bring a warm fuzzy feeling to the author; too often these are the proud, subjective words of someone who loves you and would never want to hurt your feelings even when the writing is less than perfection. Inexperienced reviewers often overlook the nuances in writing that take it from ho-hum to a higher level of literature, thus bringing the book to the attention of a more critical readership.
