*To write a review, you do NOT need to have purchased the book you’re reviewing but you must have purchased something from Amazon.

If you have purchased a book or digital item then you have an Amazon account and you can login in with your email and password.

If you have never purchased a book or product on Amazon, there is a 48-hour waiting period an item has been purchased before you’ll be able to submit your review.

Tips for writing a great review straight from Amazon:

  • Include the “why”: The best reviews include not only whether you liked or disliked a book/product, but also why. Feel free to talk about related books/products and how this item compares to them.
  • Be specific: Your review should focus on specific features of the book/product and your experience with it. For video reviews, we recommend that you write a brief introduction to go along with the video.
  • Be sincere: Amazon welcomes your honest opinion about the book/product–positive or negative. Amazon does not remove reviews because they are critical. Amazon believes all helpful information can inform our customers’ buying decisions.
  • KINDLE BOOKS (very important):  Scroll all the way to the end to the last location before leaving your review.
  • Changes: You can change, edit, and delete your review. Visit Your Amazon Profile and click the “See all reviews” link. You’ll find a link to edit your review.
  • Video: Files for video reviews must meet the following format guidelines: Maximum file size: 100MB. Maximum length: 10 minutes. Accepted formats: avi, flv, mov, mpg, wmv
