You’ve struggled for ages putting together your ebook, and it’s finally ready. You put it out for sale, but hardly anybody buys it! Where can you get it reviewed to attract readers? You should have considered this issue before you published; but now that your book is out, you can submit it for review to an ebook review site.

Ebook Review Websites
I’m currently working on a book proposal, and I’ve done some research on ebook review sites.
If you published through Amazon, the company provides space on the page for reviews. Nevertheless, it may be difficult to get a review on Amazon. If reviews fail to appear, have a friend or family member write one. Make sure they like your book before they write the review.
Other ebook review websites are hard to find, but they do exist. I had to go through a number of Google search pages to glean the following list of sites. Please note that ebook reviewers won’t buy your book to review it.
The Book Proposal
You may be in this review-less predicament because you didn’t write a book proposal. Writing a book proposal requires you to consider how you’re going to market your book. If you didn’t write one, now you’ll know better for next time. There are quite a few guides to book proposal writing online. I advise you to read several before you begin your next book project. Here are some suggestions:

Can You Help Out?
If you have any more information on or experience with these websites, please share it with your fellow Triond writers in the comments section below.
