Do You Struggle to Get 
Reader Reviews for Your Book? 

Do you feel like you've done everything you possibly can to get reader reviews
but you still don't have many? 

  • Maybe you’ve given away lots of free copies and added a “please review” message at the end of the book, but you’re still not seeing enough reviews.
  • Or maybe people are telling you they’re reading your book, but the review volume on Amazon, Goodreads, and other sites doesn’t reflect that.
  • Perhaps your sales numbers tell you the book is selling, but you aren’t seeing as many reviews as you expected.

This is frustrating, because reader reviews lead to sales.  

In fact, one study says that 84 percent of people trust online reviews as much as they trust their friends’ opinions. And reviews are the secret sauce for Amazon sales success. The more reviews you get on Amazon, the more exposure you get on that site.

Even the editors at BookBub, one of the best book-selling tools in the industry, look at reader reviews when considering your book for a newsletter deal ad. The company says that its editors “are generally more likely to select books with higher numbers of authentic and positive customer reviews.”

And, of course, reader reviews are what marketers call “social proof.” They tell other readers that your book is a safe investment – that they won’t be disappointed.

But what’s in it for readers?

There are lots of reasons why you want your book to be reviewed, but let’s be honest. On the surface, there’s little incentive for the typical reader to write that review. After all, while it often feels like your success as an author hinges on whether your book does or doesn’t get reader reviews, readers rarely see what's in it for them.  

What’s more, even readers who want to write reviews don’t necessarily know how. They want to write reviews that will help their friends and other book lovers decide what to read, but they aren't sure how to do that. Think about the number of times you’ve heard, “I don’t know what to say!”

There’s another obstacle, too. Writing an honest review that will help another book lover decide whether or not to read a book takes time.

Or does it?

What if . . . 

  • You could show your readers how to write an honest review in less than 10 minutes?
  • You could give your readers a fillable form they can use to review your book?
  • You could make it SO easy for readers that even they would agree that there’s no reason not to review your book?

Introducing the "missing link" for reader reviews: 
The Build Book Buzz
Reader Book Review Form for Fiction
and Reader Book Review Form for Nonfiction

There's finally a tool designed to help readers write the reviews you need!

You now have a Reader Book Review Form for Fiction and a Reader Book Review Form for Nonfiction!

Each two-page form walks readers through the Amazon review process, from assigning the number of stars all the way through to posting the review online. Whether your fan is reviewing your fiction or nonfiction book, using a form takes the guesswork out of the review-writing process, making it much more likely that they will write that all-important review. 

You must be proactive when it comes to soliciting reviews. Now you have a tool that will help you ask for a review while it makes it easier for your reader to write it.

Here’s how it works: 

  • Each form has a series of simple questions about the book that help readers decide where to put the emphasis in their review. Readers answer each question on the form. (It's as if they have a writing coach looking over their shoulder, guiding them through the process!)
  • Both review forms are “fillable” PDF files – your reader can either type into the form using Adobe Acrobat (standard software on most computers) or print the form and hand write the answers. 
  • Readers who fill in the form on a computer can just copy and paste their finished review on Amazon and Goodreads. It couldn’t be easier for them – or for you!
  • Readers can also use the questions and prompts as a guide while typing their review directly into the Amazon and Goodreads review forms.

Here's why you need a Reader Book Review Form

For the first time ever, you have a review tool you can give with a review copy. It truly is the "missing link."

For the first time ever, you have a review tool you can give to anyone who would like to review your book but says, “I’d like to, but I don’t know how,” or “I’d like to, but I don’t know what to say.”

For the first time ever, you will have a tool you can use to help ensure your book gets more reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and elsewhere.

Readers Love This Tool, Too! 

"I’m never sure what to write in book reviews, so this form was very useful. It helped me break down my thoughts on the book into quick bites focusing on different areas, which made assembling the review much less daunting. I probably would have skipped the review without it."

Maria Perez

"I’ve always been someone who reads reviews but I have never been confident enough to publicly share my thoughts. This form makes writing a review a much less intimidating process. It helped me zero in on key things readers like to know before choosing to invest their time and money in a book. It’s a great tool!"
