If you weigh in on what makes you want to buy a book, and then later write a great review of that book, we can all benefit from understanding what the reader’s perspective means in terms of what we need to do as authors to write, promote, and sell good books. Another way authors can help authors, by sharing what works for you: What makes a book a GOOD book?
