5 Star Review By Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite

Allyson R. Abbott has certainly made a few intelligent suggestions to make book reviews more interesting to the reader, while remaining easy on the reviewer. With the help of a few simple questions, like,"Is there anything in particular that you remember about the book that stands out or you feel confident about mentioning," as well as by suggesting a few'must not dos,' or more of 'there is no point in doing,' the author has given aclear direction for the reviewer. The recommendations given on star-ratings, is of considerable assistance for rating and marking one's review. This is very helpful book, both for learning the basics of a review and as a handy reference.

About the Author

Thank you for buying my book and reading as far as this. As I am fairly new at being an author, I am always humbled when someone reads my words. Every book I write takes many hours and days to put it together, and get it to the publishing stage. I still get a thrill when I see my books on Amazon and other eBook stores. It was only after publishing my second romance book that I realised, although I was building a following for my books, those readers were not leaving reviews. It took me until after my third book to realise that reviews are the most important factor in an author's success, providing crucial feedback, helping with sales and increasing exposure. I talked to friends and family and asked a lot of other people who read lots of books, if they left reviews when they had finished a book, as well as, if they understood the difference between an Indie Author and a Contracted Author. I was shocked to find that I was the only person within my circle of friends and family that left reviews. The most common answer was 'I have no idea where to start' and I was very surprise to discover that most had little, or no idea about the Indie Author movement, even though they knew I wrote books and am an independent author. I have to admit that, as I travel a lot, it was not something we sat down at the table to discuss, but I realised that there must also be a lot more people out there who do not know how to write a review or understand the importance of reviews for authors. I certainly didn't until I became an author. So, to help put a tiny bit of the 'world to rights', where I can, I dedicated some hours, days and weeks to write and publish this book. It is only my opinion and it is not a bible for review writing, but it may just help or encourage more readers to write reviews and therefore help authors to develop and gain a presence in a very competitive area. I am happy to discuss this, or any of my other books, or answer questions. Please feel free to contact me --This text refers to the paperback edition.

#1 Bestselling and Award Winning British Author (fiction and non-fiction)

A Blooming Boomer who loves life on the road, making new friends and meeting great people. Life in the slow lane!

After a few full-on years of travelling, which included a year and a half checking out New Zealand, a few Pacific islands, Australia and South Africa, 15months driving around the USA in a motorhome, some quick few weeks visit to Canada, Mexico, Cuba and Spain, we have now decided to pull over onto the hard shoulder for a year and have settled on the Valencian Province in Spain.

One of the most common questions I get asked is, which country or place did you like the most? A very difficult question to answer as each country or state for that matter, has something to offer. I loved New Zealand for its beauty and the friendliness of its people, South Africa for its richness of colour and history, and in the USA Montana and Arizona for their scenery, Florida for its beaches, Louisiana for its diversity, but I could go on for ever.

My writing career started half way around the USA, when I realised for the first time in my life I had time on my hand to write a book. I hope to use some of my experiences within my books; you will find a bit of Fiji in Goodbye, Hello and I am now planning a book three in the Abby and Ed Series to send them on adventures to visit the same places.

I can’t help but add humour, because we laugh in life and I try to make my books about people who we can all relate to. I do hope you enjoy them.

Enjoying life while I can, best regards Allyson.
