Books like mine live and die by word of mouth recommendations and reviews. Now that it is out and you can purchase on Smashwords, and Amazon I of course want you to buy it. To help that I need good reviews and recommendations on those sites and others like Goodreads.
Which leads me to a quandary; I want/desire/need reviews, but it seems odd to be asking/begging for them. Especially since I can’t very well say “but only good ones thanks”. 😆
So we must live by the word and die by the word… I want to hear what you have to say, and must accept what you say with graciousness and humility. It will be hard, as like most authors I think my work is fantastic 🙂 , but go at friends and spread the word.
With the forthcoming release of my Debut NovelThe Spiral Tattoo I have decided to run a competition. Entry is really easy, just write a review once it has come out and let me know, and you will go in for the amazing prize.
What is the prize you ask? A weekend on our rural idyll estate Entfarm, staying in our caravan! Prize includes home baking, and dinner and breakfast. Travel expenses NOT included…
Entries open from book release date until the 31st of July!
While not a glowing review (everyone wants their book to be given A+ across the board), I am not unhappy, as a good solid B for the first one of the rank is pleasing to me. Odin seemed to have enjoyed it and that is what is important. 🙂
