PAY IT FORWARD--REVIEW FELLOW INDIE AUTHORS' WORK!

One of the most important things you can do as an IWA member is to "pay it forward". What does this mean? It means to do for other writers what you'd hope they will do someday for you. Help and support are biggies.  Probably one of the top things on the list would be to positively review another IWA member's work.

If you've read one of an IWA member's novels, and can, with good conscience, give it a five star review, do it everywhere their books are available! If you can't give it this kind of top review, don't bother. Anything less than at least four stars will only negatively affect the books sales.

That's what readers are looking for. This is how we, as unknown indies, can compete and sell against those name brand authors.  Cover art, title, blurbs and price will draw the reader in to better consider a novel, but it's the five star reviews that will ultimately convince them to buy.

For example, to review on Amazon, click on the link corresponding to the work you wish to support, then go down to the "Customer Reviews" area and click on the "Create your own review" button.

Here are a few of our IWA members works, just waiting for your review:
