Some time ago, I decided it was time I wrote an article explaining to published authors how the review process works. I sat down one evening with some tips floating around my head, and just a couple of hours later discovered I had written not one, but three articles outlining the review process, from submitting a book, to it being read by potential purchasers, and on to using the review to promote the book.
Anyway, I’m delighted to announce that that these three articles are now available online at one of the foremost websites for writers, Writing World. I am delighted to have my articles included on this site, as it’s been an excellent resource for me over several years. It is packed full of excellent advice on all aspects of writing. I was doubly excited when I discoverd that my artciles are currently featured on the home page of thsi wonderful site.
The three articles, written from my dual perspective as reviewer and as an author who has been reviewed, are:
The Review Process: How a Book Gets Reviewed
So You Got a Review — Now What? And
Who Reads Book Reviews Anyway?
I’m hoping these three will be useful in demystifying the review process for other authors. And, if you’re not at the stage of looking for reviews, perhaps you’ll find some of the other articles at Writing World of use.
