Reviews are King – Book Marketing Pt.2

Reviews are king. Books with good reviews sell way more copies than those that haven't. Even when you do a free giveaway more people will download a book with positive reviews than the same one with none. (See my A/B testing post). Getting Reviews You don't want to rely on people who buy your book leaving reviews. There are two reasons why not. Without reviews you won't sell many copies Very few people review products (compared to the numbers that download/buy it) So you need to do some research.

Mysterious Missing Merchandise

On Monday we had a (failed) delivery from Amazon Logistics. The card below was posted through our door.   As you do, my wife checked with the woman at number 18.

After reading the web link at the top of the form my wife called Amazon on the phone number on the card earlier today. This was a frustrating call for her, the person on the other end didn't seem to care about the missing parcel. The call operator even claimed that we'd not had anything delivered from a wish list since last summer.…

Perfects serialised

Perfects, the first part of the Exodus Series, will be serialised every Friday and Tuesday for the next few weeks. However if you can't wait that long then you can always acquire a free copy of Perfects  from smashwords, or spend 99p on a version for the kindle edition of Perfects from Amazon. Here's the current blurb for the book to remind you what it is all about. Perfects by James Kemp Charlie is in his early 20s and has been campaigning for civil rights for those who have been genetically modified, curing hereditary conditions. His experiences have driven him to a life of organised crime because being genetically perfect he cannot use his talents legitimately. Unlike most criminals his motivation is to benefit others.
