Irene Watson – Getting Great Reviews

On Thursday, June 28th at 8PM EDT Victor Volkman and Tyler Tichelaar interviewed Irene Watson, author, entrepreneur, and managing editor of ReaderViews. Irene shared with us an insider’s look at how book reviews really work, how to get your book successfully reviewed including strategies and tips, and prepublication vs post-publication reviews and what to do with them. As owner of a book review, editing, coaching, and manuscript submission service bureau, she has a unique viewpoint of how things really work.  
A native of Northern Alberta, Irene’s career took her from career counseling, to business ownership, to working in management for a police force, to spiritual counseling, to teaching at a college, to retreat/seminar/workshop design and facilitation to her most recent – owning/managing Reader Views. She has an M. A. in psychology from Regis University in Denver, CO.

After retiring in 2003 Irene authored an award winning memoir, The Sitting Swing, which was published in October 2005 and co-edited a recent release The Story That Must be Told. Having a hard time getting reviews for her book, she started Reader Views on a whim. Within a month it exploded to a full time business. So much for retirement! Reader Views has since expanded into author publicity, editing, creating book videos, and the most recent, coaching for book proposals and manuscript submission service.  The Sitting Swing: A Memoir
