Ask for endorsements from readers that enjoyed your writing. Simply say something like, “Would you provide me with a positive comment I could use as a testimonial for my book?”
Use the positive comments as headlines for your writing on your website and other promotional materials such as bookmarks and brochures.
Take note of unsolicited positive comments and remarks about your writing in e-mails and personal conversations. If individuals say something positive about your writing, ask to quote them.
Collect testimonials in a notebook and you will have them readily available when promoting your writing, stories and books.
Realize that testimonials from your readers will generate excitement and create interest in your work and draw more readers for your material.
