Below, in eight easy steps, is how to post a book review at Amazon.com. Happy customers sell products, and unhappy customers protect other consumers from unsafe or unworthy ones. So, your review is counts!
- Log into Amazon.com. If you don’t have an account there, open one. It’s free.
- When you are signed in to Amazon.com, go to the page of the book you want to review. You can find that page by typing its title into the search window at the top of the page you are now on.
- There may be several books listed bearing the title you searched for. In this list, click on the link of the book you want to review.
- This brings you to the page where you can buy and review that book. If someone else has already reviewed the book you will see a link to his/her review directly below the book title. There may be more than one review.
If no reviews for that book have been posted yet, you will see a link that says “Be the first to review this book”. Click on that link.
- If at least one review has already been posted, click on the link to see those reviews. On the page that comes up you will find a button that says “Create your own review”. Click on that button.
- Give the book a rating by clicking on a star (one star is very poor, five stars is top rated).
- Type your review into the text window. Actually, it’s a good idea to have typed your review beforehand in another application. You can copy and paste it from there onto your clipboard and paste it from your clipboard into the review’s text window. That way, if you take a long time composing your work, you won’t lose what you’ve written if the Amazon site times out.
- Once you have entered your review into the text window, click on the “preview” button at the bottom of the page. This will show you how your review will appear on Amazon.com, among the list of other reviews. If you are satisfied, click on the “publish” button. Otherwise, click on the “edit” button and continue to perfect your review.
Now that you know how to do it, please post a review of my ebook, Double Exposure: A Veteran Returns to Vietnam. It’s a memoir of 22 exciting and provocative reflections about my combat tour in Vietnam in 1970, my return to Vietnam as a tourist last February, and memories in between. It’s a good read for veterans. Click on the book cover above to get the book at Amazon.com.
