Book review: NAKED TRUTHS About Getting Book Reviews by Gisela Hausmann

The Truth Will Set You Free


Ms Hausmann recommended that I read her book Naked Truths About Getting Book Reviews while we were on an online group discussion forum. I’ve got several novels published and only a smattering of reviews (mostly pretty good ones at least) but as an author I want and need more. I’m glad that I listened to her and bought her book.

She clearly pointed me in the direction of willing reviewers and also gave encouragement along the way for both new authors and already multi-published ones. I am beginning to follow some of her key tips and will add more as time goes by. Her handy how-to has encouraged me. I’ll definitely recommend her book and methods to fellow writers struggling for reviews.

In addition to her helpful guidance one thing I really, really liked was a quote she included, “An author is a success if he changes one person’s life.” The positivity is amazing.

Thank you Gisela Hausmann!
