What To Expect From A Reviewer
A reviewer or several reviewers have agreed to read your book and write a review for it. Congratulations! You are going to have some help getting people to notice your book. It’s well known that having forty or more reviews on Amazon gets your book noticed, and we’re all eager to have that happen.
Now that you have those reviewers, what exactly can you expect from them?
That is an important question to ask yourself. You did your due diligence when seeking out the best reviewers for your book. You made sure they have reviewed other books similar to yours in the past and are accepting ARCs for review. Now that you’ve reached the point where you’ll send the ARC to them to read, you should be aware of what they will provide you.
Will the reviewer post on Amazon after the write the review?
This is important if you are going to get the necessary amount of reviews in order to have your book move up in Amazon’s search engines. If a reviewer doesn’t post on Amazon, ask them if you can add their review to the “editorial review” section for your book. This is where you, the author, go into your book and add the review manually. It won’t appear with other reviews posted by readers, but will be in the section under your blurb and cover art.

One thing to remember about reviews; whether they’re five stars or one, they’re a review. It’s human nature to give a review based upon opinion. We can’t please everyone all the time, so we settle for celebrating the good reviews and learning from the bad ones.
