I like pie, just not from random internet strangers.
So, you grabbed a new shiny book off of Amazon, Kobo or Smashwords and read it through. You absolutely loved it! You can’t wait for more from this brand new author and wait with baited breath for their next release. How about you go and tell the world about it?
The best way to encourage independent authors such as myself is to leave reviews on Amazon, Goodreads and Smashwords to show us you enjoyed our work and it’ll keep us writing. I want to keep writing and publishing, but if I don’t know if anyone likes it, I might just keep it to myself.
So if you’ve read Wild Hunt, please go leave a review over on it’s pages? (points to sidebar) It means a lot. The more people who gush over it the more likely people will pick it up, and the more I’m wanting to write.
Reviews feed authors. People won’t buy our books if they don’t know if it’s good or not. Humans by nature are risk averse, especially when it comes to spending money. I don’t blame them, it’s a tough economical time and why would someone want to waste their money on a book they might not enjoy, that’s where you come in.
So, please, I’m begging, head on over to Goodreads and the book sale pages, and leave a review. It’ll take you about the same amount of time it did to read this blog post. Heck, just type it into word pad and copy/paste it into the various sites, bing bang boom done.
this says it all.
