Believe me, book reviews are important
Books need reviews and not just because good reviews boost the author's ego (which really does) but because reviews are an essential part of book marketing.
Without reviews a book gets lost in the thousands of other books released every month.
With lots of reviews the books can stay in the spotlight and readers can find them.
Reviews on Amazon can be up-voted and down-voted by just clicking a button. At the bottom of all reviews, you will see “Was the review helpful to you?” and yes/no buttons.
If you like a book, but you don’t want to write a review, then you can up-vote positive reviews that you agree with. This gives these reviews more presence and makes them “worth” more to the Amazon algorithm.
Likewise, if someone has left a bad review on a book you like, you can down-vote that review so it doesn’t have as much of an impact.
Would you like to help to keep my books in the spotlight?

If you're not interested in the genres I write, you can still help by upvoting the reviews you like.
Thank you so much for your help!
