  • Ideal length for review: 75 to 500 words
  • When to post: GOOD: Any time from now to a couple of months after the release date. BETTER: From now to about two weeks after the release date. BEST: On the release date: May 10. Note that Amazon and some others sites do not permit customer reviews until release date. Goodreads allows reviews as soon as the book is on their site (ie, now)
  • Required: Include the following sentence (or similar) in your review: I received a free advance copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

General tips on reviewing:

  • No puff, please: Readers sense (and discard) “puff” reviews—reviews written just to promote the book. Share your honest opinion and reading experience.
  • Include the “why”: Let people know why you liked or disliked the book. How did it make you feel? Did the characters seem real? Did you empathize with them? Did the story open your eyes to something you may not have known before?
  • Caution: Amazon is wary of friends and family posting reviews, which may fall under their category of “promotional.” To avoid having your review taken down, tell readers how you feel about the book, not about the author or the publisher.
  • Author & cover image: Available for download at our website: http://circlingrivers.com/home/american-tumbleweeds/
