This one time at Writer's Camp…
One of the things I hate to sound like is a broken record.
One of the things I hate to…
You get the point.
Sarcasm aside, I really would like to implore readers to review the books they read over on Amazon. It helps spread the word and get the author noticed in the midst of the thousands of authors trying to gain an audience. Whether it’s a 5 star or a 1 star (or those pesky in-between stars), reviews help.
Of course, we authors prefer the “above 3 stars” reviews more than the 1 or 2 stars, but all reviews can be helpful if they’re actually pertaining to the novel. Complaining about the price of an ebook (which the author has no control over, usually) is akin to complaining to Peyton Manning about beer prices at Arrowhead Stadium (football analogy, woot!).
Right now, Kraken Mare is sitting pretty at #26,839 in overall rankings for ebooks. This is awesome! Except… there’s only one review. Granted, it’s a 5 star review (yay!) but it’s all by its lonesome (sad face here).
So get out there and vo– er, I mean, review.
