Wow, I’ve been blogging deficient this month. Sorry ’bout that.
What’s going on in my world? Well, I’m still working on Between the Heaves of Storm, and Horns. I also am planning out a new YA trilogy about superheroes. In my non-writing life, I’ve actually created a new habit in my life. I now wash the dishes after every meal I eat. Yes, I have been successful at doing this, and I am very proud of myself. I am a horrible slob, so this is quite an accomplishment.
Sales are increasing briskly on Amazon this month, and I’ve sold over 160 books! Which is awesome. Thanks to everyone who helped with that.
My offer of free Invoke coupons in exchange for reviews did not pan out this month (although I am very, very, very grateful to those of you who did post reviews. You are my favorite four people ever.), so I’m extending it a month. I’d really like to see a few more reviews, especially for books that have none. Right now, the books that are selling the best are the books that have the most reviews. It’s possible that more reviews will equal more sales.
Why should you care about this, you ask? After all, you may be feeling a bit cheated. This was a website of free fiction, darn it. Now all I want to do is sell, sell, sell. Okay, well, here’s why you should care. A) I have not abandoned serial fiction entirely. I promise that both of the forthcoming J&A books will be serialized for free on this site. B) Selling more books means I can eventually make money on writing fiction only. That means, with no day job, I will have much more time to write. That means more books, some of which will be free. So, really, see, this investment of writing a review (especially for one that’s free on my website and which you’ve already read), costs you nothing and could very well lead to more free reading in the future.
All right, whatever. I tried.
I’m vain, okay? And insecure. I want to know what people think of my books. Even if it’s bad. Especially if it’s bad. All the books that are popular have lots of reviews and some of them are bad reviews. Getting bad reviews will mean my books are real books. But, um, yeah, mostly I just want ego-stroking, glowing reviews.
Soooo, anyway, here’s the list and the rules again. Here’s the links for every kindle book I’ve published. Almost all of them have been previously serialized. So take a few minutes and review ‘em. As soon as each book has ten reviews each, I’ll post the coupon for Invoke. Thanks again, fabulous blog readers!
