Professional Opinions

Here a list of questions I’m only learning to ask about the publishing business. If you have the time or experience, I would appreciate your help.

  1. When I come across a book I really like, I send a review to the author for approval to post on Amazon, is that normal practice?
  2. Have you ever been approached to use quotes from your reviews as part of a jacket recommendation?
  3. What do you find is the best approach for garnering reviews?
  4. Is this acceptable, “Please let me know if you enjoy my book?”
  5. As for all unknown subjects, I’m not sure I’m covering the information I need. What other questions should I be asking?
  6. How do you enjoy readers to post reviews on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble?

Thank you for your time.
