Christopher Locke
The Power of Book Reviews
& How to Garner Them

Excellent reviews can greatly increase your book’s chances at success, but garnering reviews can be a challenging endeavor in this saturated book market. Independent Book Publishers Association Director of Membership & Member Services & author publisher Christopher Locke will discuss strategic planning for obtaining consumer and trade reviews; whether or not to consider paid reviews; and more. No matter if you’re writing fiction, nonfiction, cookbooks, and so on, if you’re looking to garner more reviews, this talk is for you!

Independent Book Publishers Association is the largest trade association for independent publishers in the U.S. As the IBPA Director of Membership & Member Services, Christopher Locke assists the 3,700+ members as they travel along their publishing journeys. As one of his major projects, he oversees the IBPA NetGalley program, which generates buzz and garners reviews for indie publishers’ titles. He’s also passionate about indie publishing, because he’s an author publisher himself, having published two novels so far in his YA trilogy, The Enlightenment Adventures.
