The MWC Review Exchange to launch at Pen in Hand Mini Conference March 22

Many writing blogs will tell you that one of the best methods to promote your book, especially indie authors, is to have your book reviewed in many forms and via many venues.  Fortunately, for MWC member/authors, a tool to enhance your ability to seek reviews and endorsements of your book will launch at the March Pen in Hand mini conference on March 22. 

The MWC Review Exchange is a new exclusive service to MWC member/authors to allow you to submit a request to exchange book reviews or endorsements with other MWC member/authors. Participants registered for the Pen in Hand conference will be offered the first opportunity to use the service from now until the Pen in Hand conference as long as the current year MWC membership is paid. If you need to pay your annual membership fee, visit PayPal.

If you need to hone up on your book review skills or would like some guidance on how to write an engaging book endorsement, register for Robin Throne’s “The Art of the Blurb” from 3-4:45 pm on March 22 and be a first participant in the MWC Review Exchange!  

A description of the MWC Review Exchange is offered below:

4.    You will be sent the contact information for the work that you have agreed to review/endorse in exchange for your submission. The author will be notified of your exchange and will send you their work.
That’s it!
