Calling for Reviews? Or not.

Let me be honest, reader reviews are necessary. They hopefully inform new readers about how good or bad a book may be before it is purchased. And in the Amazon marketplace, reviews are critical for a book’s exposure. With this said, most readers don’t leave reviews.

This is understandable. Heck, for years I hardly ever left behind a review. My live is a busy one, as are the lives of my readers. So, I’m being a complete hypocrite here. I know this. And yet, as an author I need to ask the reading public to gift me with their time and thoughts because I don’t have a long list of beta-readers or an endless email list of supporters. I am an introvert who’d rather listen to the characters in my own head than go to a party and mingle. I can’t tell you how often I’ve said something completely inappropriate in a social setting. Or drank too much because I felt uncomfortable. But those are stories best told inside a future book. Back to the reason for this post…

If you enjoyed any of my books after purchasing them on Amazon, please take a moment to let other potential readers know why. Luckily, all my books are free to download because they are enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.

If you purchased one of my books directly from me or received a book as a gift from someone else, log on to Goodreads.com and leave a comment about the book. And please know that I truly appreciate your support.

In a perfect world, I’d never ask for reviews. It would be lovely if the world immediately embraced my vision, my writing, and the worlds I have created. I wish I could say that Netflix was desperately trying to buy the rights to the Darkly Series or Hollywood wanted to turn The Love of Gods into a movie but that’s not the case. Not yet. Perhaps that will happen one day, but I need your help to get the word out.

Thank you.
