The 13th Floor Collection blog tour is nearly at an end!

I can't believe we've only a few days left of the tour! What a month it's been. I hope you've had a chance to enter at least one giveaway to win a copy of the collection. If not, there's still a couple more days!

Today I'm talking about something important to every writer: reviews. Why are reviews so important? And how do you write one?
Head on over to the wonderful Lynda R. Young's blog to find out.

In the back of the Collection, I ask readers to leave a review. I'm curious as to how many other authors do the same thing. Please let me know your feelings about this.

  1. Because I'm an author, I will only leave reviews of the stories I love. There may be one or two exceptions, but it's rare.

    It's great to have you visit over at my place!! :)

  2. I think it's a great idea to ask readers to leave a review. If the reader has actually managed to read to the end of the book then there must be something good to be said about it.
    I admit I shy away from leaving reviews but I'm about to start!
    Thanks for sending me to Lynda's blog for the pointers, Christine.

  3. I saw your review request, and thought it was a good idea. I've seen a couple of other authors do the same thing. I think when a reader sees that they may be more likely to leave a review - perhaps it just wouldn't occur to some people to leave one.

  4. I think asking readers to leave reviews is a great idea. It would definitely make me more inclined to write one.

  8. I left one in the back of mine too--asking for reviews. It doesn't hurt to remind readers how important they are these days.

    Big Congrats on an amazing tour!!

  9. Thank you, folks. I see many authors agree with me about reviews. Now we must convince the readers!

  10. A bit of encouragement doesn't hurt. I think some readers may be intimidated about writing an eloquent review - I struggle with it myself - but just a line saying what was awesome about it would do, I think!
