Authors are pretty easy to please. We just want you to read our works, love it immensely, tell all your friends, write glowing reviews on your blogs, billboards, barns, and basically proclaim us QUEEN ULTIMATE POETS OF ALL TIME.
That may be a bit of an exaggeration. *ahem*
It is true that published writers want others to read their work. One of the ways readers can help to make that happen is by reviews on Amazon. The publishing juggernaut has an interesting algorithm that I’m not actually sure how it works. (I envision monkeys typing on antiquated Commodore 64s in the pale moonlight.) 50 is a magic number at Amazon. When your book reaches 50 reviews then it makes it a book that people are interested in seeing and subsequently people will be referred to that book.
That’s how you can make authors happy. Read the thing and write reviews.
Here at The Reverie, we feel the same. We’re hoping that those of you who have already read the collection could take a few minutes and write a review. It doesn’t have to be extensive or incredibly in-depth. It will help to get more people to see our book and pique their interest. We love it, we’re proud of it, and we want to get it in more hands.
For those of you who haven’t read The Reverie Issue One, but would like to, we have an offer for you. The first 10 people who send us an email asking for a copy will receive a code for either a free Kindle ebook or a discount of a paperback. If you’re interested in receiving a copy for a fair and honest review, please send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org with BOOK REVIEWER as the subject. Let us know if you’d prefer an ebook or a paperback.
Thank you so much for all of your support and helping us to achieve such an amazing goal. 2015 was fun, but let’s make 2016 shine.
