Well it’s three days post-launch and I’m sure everyone who reads my blog is now aware “The Stars Were Right“ is now out and is available on Kindle , Kobo or direct from me. Without readers books are of little value, so it feels good to get it out into the wide world and into your hands.
So far I have had a lot of interest (yay!) and quite a few of you have taken the time to both purchase and start reading (yay x2!). Thank you! I appreciate you helping me out. It’s fantastic to see so many people excited to read Stars.
If you have finished or you’re still reading and enjoying the book I want to take a moment to list out a few ways you can continue to help make “The Stars Were Right” a success:
- If you like it, tell your friends.
Seriously, this is an enormous help. Tell your friends you’re reading it and enjoying it. If you have finished, tell them what you thought. This is the best way to spread the word: face-to-face recommendations.
- Post about it socially
Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, message boards, wherever. Tell people you’re reading Stars. Give them a link. Start a discussion. On Twitter I have been using the hashtag #TheStarsWereRight.
- Leave honest ratings and reviews
Your opinion matters. Please give the book ratings and reviews on Amazon, and Goodreads, or wherever you picked up your copy. Honest reviews can really help an indie title become a success. For everyone who reads a book, fewer still will write a review, yet people shopping for a new book will pay close attention to reviews. They help a lot.
These little actions can go a long way, and they work for any new author— independent or traditional—and their stories. So if you want to help out, take some time and follow one of my suggestions.
Finally, thanks once again to everyone who took the time to pick up “The Stars Were Right.” I hope you’re enjoying it. Please feel free to drop me a line with comments, questions, feedback, really anything. You can leave a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org—I do my best to respond to all my emails.
