TIPSY TODAY with Rogena
Reviews, References, and Referrals
All three are extremely important in the indie writing community—for authors, editors, designers, illustrators, and more.
Reviews for authors and their books, along with references and referrals for the rest of the 'villagers' who contribute to publishing their books are significantly important and can be true confidence builders.
If you are a reader, please remember to leave reviews. The number of reviews plays a huge part in how Amazon and other retailers promote for authors and sellers. Be positive. Be kind. And if you find the need to leave a negative review, please be constructive, not angry and hateful.
On my website, I have references from a few of my clients. When I started my freelance editing business, I offered a few edits for free to get started. With those edits, I asked for testimonials or references. Good or bad, I needed to know if this was my cuppa and potential clients needed to know if I would be a good candidate as an editor for them.
To me, these are like an author receiving a book review.
This week, I've asked for a few new references to include on my website. One of the new ones I received was from an author I consider a very dear friend. It touched me. So much, I thought I would share the words and to also promote this friend and his work.
Kindness in words and support is extremely important in all walks of life... especially in the writing community. Build people up. Support your fellow authors. Don't bully. And don't tear people down while hiding behind your keyboard.
