In a crowded market, a book review can help generate interest in a title and boost sales, thus supporting an author’s career. In turn, good book reviewers can also earn attention for themselves with their insights and opinions. This webinar will discuss the benefits of reviewing, both casually and professionally, and instruct how to write your own reviews and edit reviews written by others.

Emily Stewart followed a love of reading into two different publishing programs.
