Spotlight Author Interview - Annamaria Bazzi
What methods do you use to get your book reviews?
I haven't had much luck with reviews. When I first queried websites that said they review books I got no responses from the website owners except for two; Del Sheree from The Edible Bookshelf and Judy Shafer from Voracious Reader responded.
I keep querying blogs that review books, but all I ever get is no responses or sorry I'm too swamped at the moment and am not taking any new requests. I've found out quickly that no reviews mean no sales…
So now I've changed my marketing strategies. Kendika, the MC of White Swans (Kendika is the orphan character from Annamaria's book White Swans.) now has her own Facebook page and website… she has more traffic than my blog and she's been up and running for only one month :)
