Having a relationship with reviewers is a huge advantage to any author, especially one trying to self-publish. Reviewers typically have their own blogs and an online presence, so can not only get you some attention, but some great feedback as well. However these reviewers and bloggers are typically overwhelmed by the amount of review requests they get.
That’s why it’s important to form a relationship with reviewers before, during, and after you finish your book. Don’t just wait until you’re final product is done to bombard reviewers with requests like, “Hi, I don’t know you, but can you review my book?” They get tons of those per day so it’s not likely that they’ll get to yours.
Instead, form a relationship prior to your book’s completion. Follow them on social media, like and comment on their posts, share their work, and praise them for their writing. Writers enjoy collaborating with fellow writers, and are more likely to help each other out if a relationship is already formed.
