A Word About When to Request Reviews
This course was initially created to help authors get reviews on their already published books, but you can use this course to request reviews for your about-to-be-published book.
I have an added module on that for you to understand how to prep your Advanced Reviewer Copies (your book before publication for the reviewers, also know as ARCS), and when to send them out.
