★Help for posting a review and finding the link to your review ★

✔ How to post a book review:

Posting a review is easy.

Simply go to the book’s page:


Scroll down to Customer Reviews. Click on the gray button that says “Write a customer review.”

Write a customer review button

It will take you to the page where you write the review.

Click on the number of stars, write something as a title of the review, and a few words in the review field.

Click “Preview” button, click “Publish.” All done!

✔ How to find a link to the review you’ve posted:

After you have posted a review, it might take Amazon a little while to show it on the book’s page. If it is your first review ever, it might take close to 48 hours, so please plan accordingly to make sure you have time to enter the drawing.

If it’s not your first review, it should show up pretty fast; most times it takes only a couple of minutes.

Simply click on this link:


In the link above, the reviews for this book are pre-sorted by time with the most recent ones on top. As soon as you see your review, click on the little blue link right under the review on the right-hand side that says “Permalink.” This will open your review separate from all the others. Simply copy the URL from your browser and paste it into your Facebook message. Please don’t forget to include your email as well, okay?

As you can see, this is pretty simple. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me on Facebook. Good luck!
