This post is specifically for my friends and readers who enjoy my series. I need your help. With the reissues of books one and two, there’s been some good buzz and a decent number of initial sales, but I need to expand my audience base tremendously this year. That’s the only way I’m ever going to reach the point of writing full-time, and at this point in my life, I have to retire from education within the next year or two and focus exclusively on writing. This where I need your help.
Seventh Star Press has given me an excellent platform, with outstanding covers and a lot of exposure through various blogs/reviewers, but even with that, I still feel like an unknown commodity. If you are a fan of the series, I’m appealing to you for two specific things: 1) The books need more reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Goodreads. If you can, please write reviews and post them to these sites. The more reviews each book receives, the more other readers will see that this series has some depth and quality to it. Just like anything, the more people who have already tried something, the more others will be willing to try it themselves. 2) Please, help me spread the word by reposting links on your social networking pages like Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Four Square, and anything else you might use. One of the secrets to the algorithms used by Facebook and Google for deciding what to show people is the volume of shares and traffic a page gets, so the more activity, the more likely they will show my stuff. If you could share my author’s page or the main page for the series to your wall, it could go a long way to sparking more volume.
I understand that you are busy and probably have a million things on your to-do list, but if you could help me with these two things, it would go a long way to boosting interest in the series and allowing me to focus more on writing. Some of you have been with me from the beginning and have already helped tremendously; some of you have only discovered the series in the last year or two. Either way, I’m asking you personally to please help me spread the word. As always, thank you for your support.
