For an emerging author (sounds like I'm crawling out of a dark hole), one of the biggest challenges is getting reviews published. I hate the idea of paying for a "professional" review. I had a really bad experience in that space with my last novel. (The reviewer obviously just read the book blurb on amazon and reformatted the same information. Then, when I complained, they assigned a second reviewer, who read the first chapter and then wrote a review including details about the characters that all came from the first chapter of the book. Sure, they gave me a 5-star rating, but it was bullmanure.)
So, what ideas do folks have? Where are the secret places to go to find reader/reviewers who will post honest feedback and reviews? I'm running a give-away on Goodreads that will put 100 Kindle copies in the hands of readers, which I hope will generate at least a few reviews. What else can I do? I will greatly appreciate all suggestions. Thanks.
