Children’s Book Review Lottery! Enter Here!

#SupportanAuthor #WriteaReview

This week I’m piggybacking on a great idea that was originally posted on the blog kaylaannauthor.wordpress.com, just last Wednesday. Here on writerreaderteacher.wordpress.com I’m excited to announce that I’ll be hosting my own “Children’s Book Review Lottery”.

Writers and illustrators can get plenty of craft and network support from critique groups, mentors, societies, guilds, etc. But one area we need more help with is getting reviews. In her post, KaylaAnn pointed out it takes 50 reviews to get your title to pop up with the marketing tags of, “Customers who viewed this item also viewed this . . .”

In order to get visibility you need reviews, we all do. What better way to support fellow writers than to offer a book review lottery!

I will choose one title per “Children’s Book Review Lottery”. Entrants can be picture books, early chapter, chapter books, or middle grade books. At the end of the month I will post my review to Amazon, Goodreads, WordPress, Twitter and Instagram (story). As Kayla offered in her blog, I will only post a review if I feel comfortable giving it 3 stars or more. If I feel that the book deserves less than 3 stars, I will send my review directly to the author and ask if they still want me to post it on Amazon (only). I will do “Children’s Book Review Lotteries” as often as time and money allow.

All that’s left for you to do is to enter. Just leave the title of your book, a link to it and a compelling blurb in the comments at the end of this post. In order for your entry to qualify you need all three requirements. I will let you know personally if your book has been chosen.

I’m looking forward to reading and reviewing your book!

  1. The Safe Return

    It’s a topsy-turvy world children live in today, but the adventures must safely return. Face masks on or face masks off, this two-sided book can be flipped over to be read either way for a fast-paced story on the ups and downs of a balance bike ride with friends. No matter which way you read it, the book reinforces the joys and freedoms of childhood and advocates for a safe return to fun.
