Soft Launch

“Food for Love” is is in the final formatting stages! (Yay!) I just saw the cover art and (as usual) I LOVE it! I can’t wait to show it to everybody. Can you tell I’m a little excited here?

I’ve had an idea for launching this book and I need everyone’s help. I know this is a busy time of year, but every time of year is a good time of year to read, right? Here’s what I need: Reviews! Mostly Amazon reviews, since 98% (I just made up that number, but it’s probably around there somewhere) of my sales are on Amazon.

I am going to publish this book on Smashwords first and hold off on the Amazon publishing. Why? Well, on Smashwords I can offer all of you lovely people a FREE coupon to buy “Food for Love.” That’s right. FREE! Who doesn’t love that word? But, as you guessed, nothing in life is free. This one comes with a string attached. If you download the book for free, please, please, please write (and post) a review. (Of course, I would like for the review to be 3 stars or higher. If you absolutely cannot, in good conscience, leave a positive review then please don’t leave a review at all! You can come back to my blog or FB page and tell me how much you hated it.)

Now, this offer will only be good for a week or two. (I haven’t totally decided.) I know all of you are crazy fast readers, so if you could post your review as soon as I let you know that the novel is up on Amazon I will be so grateful. The idea here is that launching a book on Amazon with 20+ positive reviews helps move it up in the ranks and thus reach more readers.

Once again, Amazon is where most of my sales occur so I’d really love to have a good turn out of reviews there. If you have a Nook or an Ipad, reviews on B&N and Apple are also great. Reviews anywhere are great! If you have tons of free time on your hands, you could leave a review on all those sites!

So, keep tuned in here the next couple of days. I will be posting a FREE coupon code for “Food for Love.”

Thank you all and Merry Christmas!
