How do you get your first eBook review?
Below you see the “home” page of The Tourist Trail in the Apple iBookstore.
It looks a tad lonely without any ratings or reviews.
But how do you reach out and ask the people who purchased the book to review it?
Both Apple and Amazon keep customer names anonymous, which, as a reader, I certainly appreciate.
But now that I’m on the other side, I’m left scratching my head.
Idea for Amazon and Apple: Give authors a handy way to add digital notes to readers. In the print world an author or publisher might insert a note into the book the way a bookstore inserts a bookmark. But with eBooks there needs to be something equivalent.
Until Apple and Amazon implement my suggesiton, the best I can do right now is ask for reviews via this blog.
If you are one of the wise early adopters of The Tourist Trail, please take a moment to review the book.
