The Daily Post Rare

It feels like less of us blog in the summer and more blog during the school year which I find rare. As an avid reader and blogger this is the theme rare and so very true. I did not see many of my blogging friends online this 2016 summer.

As you all know I love to read here is a book review

It’s Your Choice by Marjorie McKinnon 015

Do you want to learn how to make decisions that will change your life? To exist without a purpose is to drift in the sea with no destination.  Think what it could mean if each of us were to discover our own purpose, set in motion, and realize its fullest potential?  McKinnon will show you how to develop healthy behavior patterns in six dimensions: mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, social and financial.  It is so true that we need to see the truth of seeing things as they are, not as we want them to be.  The three realities are: the way others see us, the way we see ourselves, and the way we really are.  The key is emotions deceive our perceptions and hide the real reality.  Marjorie McKinnon is the author or REPAIR Your Life: a program of recovery from Incest and childhood sexual abuse and repair for kids that I highly recommend as well.  I was gifted this book for free for my unbiased review and now I can rededicate myself to my true purpose in my own life.  © 2016 Jackie Paulson

Conquer Codependency, Conquer Shame, Get on with Your True Self, August 23, 2014
Conquering Shame and Codependency: 8 Steps to Freeing the True You (Paperback)
Things you will learn reading Darlene’s book:
1. The shame experience
2. Shame and Identity
3. Escaping Shame
4. Emptiness
5. Shame and Symptoms of codependency
6. Love’s Silent Killer
7. Sexual Shame
8. 8 Steps to Free Your true self
The Introduction is a true account of how the author attended an Al-Alnon program in 1979, and she did not trust or value herself or even know who she was “outside the roles she played each day.” I think this is an experience most women encounter and we need to get off the treadmill of people pleasing and get back in touch with our feelings and stop people pleasing. Yes, steps to get over codependency.
I loved the chart on page 124:
Codependent relationships:
* Intense attraction
* Idealize each other and ignore difference
* Fall in love and make commitments
* Get to know each other
* Become disappointed
* Cling to romantic fantasy of love
* Try to change partner into ideas
* Feel resentful and unloved
That did it for me, because then you learn how to become whole and have healthy relationships. The information in this book was beyond my expectations, and I learned more about shame and how it can stem from childhood onto adulthood. This is my top ten list of favorites for 2014. © 2014 Jackie Paulson

How To Get Book Reviews Target Top Reviewers on Amazon

This is the post excerpt.

Books On Shelf In Bookshop

To generate a positive book reviews from one of Amazon’s top customer reviewers is not only a great endorsement for your book, it’s often perceived as a more meaningful. This is due to the review due to the criteria of those that have already qualified in Amazon’s top reviewer list.
The book reviewer’s have a professional profile and credibility. But the rewards are often worth the extra effort. In many cases, reviews from top Amazon reviewers can generate enough momentum to create a cascade of additional reviews and book sales.
It is a well known fact that connecting with book bloggers, will build a connection. A great marketing strategy.
Look up book Authors you like and the reviewers and then you can click on the email and ask questions for marketing:
Do they accept unsolicited books?
What other books have they reviewed?
Does yours fit with their interests?
Do they have a blog where they post their reviews?
How do they review other books in your genre?
What are some of their other interests that you could use to help personalize your query or pitch?
Another strategy for finding high quality reviewers on Amazon:amazon logog
• Go to your personal Author Page on Amazon and locate the “Customers Also Bought Items By” section on the right. This section provides a list of authors whose topic or genre is similar.
• Clicking on an author name will bring you to their author page, which will include a listing of their books. Choose a book, then click on a review for that book. This will take you to the Customer Reviews page.
• Click on the name of a reviewer to get to that reviewer’s Amazon profile (which lists books or items that they’ve reviewed).
• Look for contact info like an email address or a link to their website.
• Send them a query via email, referencing that you noticed they reviewed book XYZ by John Doe and you are wondering if they would be interested in reviewing your book on a similar topic, and that you’d be happy to send them a free copy if they’re interested.
• Remember, you can go through the “Customers Also Bought Items By” section on each author’s page.
