Thank you readers for all your encouragement.  Book number two is underway. 

Dear Friends,
Many of you have commented how much you love my book, Campfire in the Basement. Thank you so much. I enjoy and appreciate all of your comments.
Many of you have asked how to leave a book review.
We got some help with this explanation and hope it helps. Reviews are a big deal for authors, so if you can leave a review, thank you.
There are several places where reviews can be left for books.
Here is how to do a book review on Goodreads:
1. Go to this link. It will go directly to Campfire in the Basement
2. When you see the book, click below the book. You can choose “want to read”, “read”, or “currently reading.” If you have completed the book, click “read.”
3. Now, you can choose how many stars to give the book. 5 is the best rating, 1 is the poorest rating.
4. Once you do this, you will be prompted to write a review. (See below)
Here is how to do a book review on Amazon:
1. Use this link. It will take you directly to Campfire in the Basement
https://www.amazon.com/Campfire-Basement-Darrell-J-Pedersen/dp/B0BWT5QG3P/?_ encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_w=J0gCw&content-id=amzn1.sym.add701ed-2d82-4af9-b095-4 3fa71d1fb4e%3Aamzn1.symc.0be80b80-fece-46bc-88bd-c8e6394f049e&pf_rd_p=add7 01ed-2d82-4af9-b095-43fa71d1fb4e&pf_rd_r=GXKS94WZY4GZZZ6N2MTQ&pd_rd_wg =25Kv4&pd_rd_r=ef9bae0c-bacb-4cca-b17f-9517720dd6c0&ref_=pd_gw_ci_mcx_mr_h p_atf_m
2. When you see the book, scroll down until you see Customer Reviews and click on “Write a Customer Review”
3. This will prompt you to select stars (5 best, 1 poorest) and to write a review.
4. Amazon will not post the review immediately, as it is reviewed prior to being posted.
How to Write a Review:
A Book Review can be as short or as long as the reviewer chooses to write. It can be a few words like “This was a great book” or “Highly recommend” to as long as a book summary, naming favorite characters and scenes.
If you can, it would be nice if the review could be a few sentences. Perhaps something like this:
 I really enjoyed Campfire in the Basement. It was witty and had moments that made me laugh out loud. I think my friends would really enjoy it. Great gift idea!
If you have any questions about where or how to review, let us know, and we will find out the answers.
Thank you,
