Seeking book reviews

It pays to solicit book reviews from your readers. Amazon uses the number of reviews and the ratings to boost your book in the rankings. They even showcase a book once it has in excess of six reviews, and votes indicating a reader found a review helpful.

You'll find several helpful review sources in Release Your Writing, and I've received a very nice review from an enthusiastic reader in the U.K. You can read her full review here at Book Pleasures, but I'd like to share my favorite sentence from her comments:

"There is nothing to stop you now after reading this brilliant guide."

Isn't that great? Okay, I know some people in the U.K. use the word "Brilliant" like we say "yea," but it's still fun to see.
