I have not become rich as a self-published writer, but I still get a bit giddy when a total stranger takes a chance and buys one of my books. I’m grateful for anyone who decides to spend their valuable free time reading something I’ve created. What I would like to coax from you, dear readers, are reviews. Amazon reviews are like gold, and generating them is like pulling teeth. Like my multiple cliches in that one sentence? I do. Because there is truth in cliches. Where Darkness Dwells currently has no Amazon reviews. Besides the positive impact reviews have on word-of-mouth and future sales, I’m just damn curious to see what people think of my tale of Great Depression horror. I wonder if I’ve offended anyone with the sometimes coarse subject matter. I think I handled it tastefully, but there are different levels of tolerance.
So anyway, here’s the deal. If you post an Amazon review for either of my novels within the next week, I will send you a free copy of my other novel. Write new reviews for both of my novels? I’ll make sure you get an e-copy of my upcoming collection from Dog Horn Publishing, THROUGH THE EYES OF STRAYS. I know most readers are not professional reviewers, and that the idea of writing a review can cause some people to break out in nervous sweats. I’m not asking for a crazy-long break down of every nuance of the work. A couple of lines about what works, or even what doesn’t work, would suffice. Have a couple of minutes to jot down a few lines of feedback? If you write a new review, drop me a line at glenkrisch(at)gmail.com, and I’ll make sure you get your reward!
