Welcome to the Women Who Win Empower Podcast! My guest today is Lu Ann Worley, a book reviewer/promoter and the founder of Rockin' Book Reviews.
WWWE 010: In this episode, Lu Ann shares her entrepreneurial story as the owner and writer of the Rockin’ Book Reviews blog, and how she earned second-page placement on Google’s listing (among over 12 million blogs in a similar genre) and is among the top Amazon reviewers. Learn what inspired her to follow her dream, the challenges she faced along the way, the importance of reviews to authors in this competitive industry, and ways to sell more books. She also advises on how to achieve success -- despite obstacles.
More About Lu Ann Worley:
Lu Ann is an avid reader and has a passion for family-oriented books but reviews most genres. She currently has more than 11,000 digital book submissions as well as shelves of print books awaiting her review.
I always loved reading and learning. I have had health issues most of my life. Since one of the few things I was able to do was read, my daughters encouraged me to create a Review Blog. This is my dream job! I have always wanted to work for a publishing house – reading, reviewing and editing books. Now, online, this can partially be accomplished. I began as a reviewer, then added Interviews of Authors/Publicists/Illustrators/Tour Hosts. I also began participating in Virtual Book Tours, Blog Hops, and Group Giveaways. Last year I added pre-recorded YouTube Video Interviews posted on my blog.
In spite of having five blogs "wiped" or otherwise destroyed, out of well over 12 million + Family Oriented Review blogs, last year I was able to place on page two of Google's listing. I am, also, among the top Amazon's reviewers.
Lu Ann resides in the state of Utah and has eight children, 37 grandchildren, and is happily married to her husband of fifty-one years.
