One important point I forgot to mention during the conversation was how vital positive reviews are for authors, especially independent authors. Reviews on Amazon or Goodreads help authors promote their work elsewhere and expand their readership. Many promotion services require or strongly suggest that authors have a certain number of reviews on Amazon before they will consider promoting their book.
So, if you enjoy my books, please take a few minutes and leave a review on Amazon. I know it isn’t something we always think about, but it is a powerful and free way to help authors like me. If you find it hard to come up with the words, just think about something you enjoyed about the book and leave a sentence or two. Maybe you like the setting or the characters. Was the book entertaining or an escape for you? If so, tell others.
Many thanks to those who attended the event today~it was great to visit with you. A special thanks to Anne Pershing for joining me. And for all you readers out there~I'm grateful for the reviews you have submitted. If you haven't yet posted a review, please consider it.
