Smorgasbord Book Promotion – Air Your Reviews – Jason B. Ladd and Deanie Humphrys- Dunne

Welcome to the celebration of reviews. Each review that you receive is another acknowledgement that a reader has enjoyed your book. Accepted there will be times when that review is slightly more critical that we had hoped but that too is useful as we grow as writers.

I would love to hear about your reviews for your work and I aim to promote authors regularly every four weeks or so. With over 250 authors in the Cafe and Bookstore I may have to add another promotional post each week but that is a good thing. Email me on

My first author with a huge influx of reviews is Jason B. Ladd whose recently published guide to getting substantial reviews for your work Book Review Banzai, has proven his method works. Considering the book was only published in June it has certainly received an impressive amount of feedback.

As an indie author, how do you get your book into the hands of as many people as possible? With book reviews. This book will show you how to use a laser-focused, in-depth technique to accomplish that one aspect of your book promotion: getting those coveted reviews. And you don’t have to be a first-time author to use the technique; it will work for any author who wants to increase their number of reviews.

Although written with humor and levity, the author is very sincere and gives examples from his personal experience. Aside from his priceless advice on how to garner reviews for your book, he also gives us a lesson on how to write a book: with no editing errors, hyperlinked chapters, footnotes, a review request at the end, e-course signup link, email signup link, links to other books by the author, and testimonials. Flawless!

Be warned, this system is not an easy fix; you will need to put in some effort. But, tell you what … it worked on me. I replied to Jason’s review request email in less than five hours!

Don’t forget to check out the e-course! As the author states, “I want to make it even easier. I want to show you exactly how to do it all click by click. That’s what I’ve done in the Book Review Banzai e-course. The e-course is loaded with content and bonuses designed to make your banzai as easy and successful as possible. Instructional videos. Swipe copy. Email templates. Resource guides. Checklists. It’s all included in the e-course.”

I received this book in return for an honest review.

My next author with some wonderful reviews for her memoir My Life at Sweetbriar : A Life Changed by Horses, is Deanie Humphrys-Dunne.

About My Life at Sweetbriar

What if you grew up on a horse farm and your single passion was to become a champion horseback rider? The problem is, you were born with a disability. Doctors tell your parents you’ll never walk, let alone ride. What will happen next? What does her dad do that changes her life? Will a failed racehorse and a handicapped girl become a winning team? This is the author’s true story of her journey. Even if Deanie prevails, will she find exactly the right horse to help her win?

The latest reviews for My Life at Sweetbriar.

Thank you, Deanie, for writing such an inspirational message to children. The style is delightful, teaching lessons on owning a horse and on riding and jumping plus explaining terms as you go along. Definitions are woven into the story seamlessly. Along the way, you can’t miss the lessons in family love, encouragement and loyalty. The last chapter brings this all together with encouraging each child to persevere through all of life’s trial and tribulations.

The pictures of the farm, you and the horses help the reader remember this is not a novel, but a true story of someone who overcame great odds. Your teacher mode came out with the questions and answers at the end. All aspects were well thought out and brought together so well. I highly recommend “My Life at Sweetbrier: A Life Changed by Horses”

I loved the writing style of the author. She takes you through her life and story in beautiful prose. You do not even realize that you have finished the story.
This book is inspirational for kids and adults loving children books.

  2. Thanks again, Sally, for bringing these books to my attention. I’ve never been horse-crazy, so I would never have had the slightest interest in My Life at Sweetbriar but for reading about it here.

    The first book has broad appeal for any info-preneur – author or not, and it certainly interested me. The fact that it comes with your endorsement makes it stand out from the crowd of marketing “experts” and make it to my ever-lengthening TBR list. 🙂

      • Impressive! Not “playing the numbers,” I hope (ie., spamming a huge mailing list of potential readers with “offers”).

        I’m a bit sensitive after recently spending over an hour online with a “financial freedom with effective internet marketing” self-professed guru who has a marketing funnel that is, no doubt, financially successful for HIM. It took a bit of time to see that it seemed to be, primarily, a course on how to create e-glut as an affiliate marketer.

        I just don’t want that kind of thinking in my head!
