Hey folks, one of the hardest things to do for an author is literally to say, “Will you read my book?” In about 10 days, I’m planning to submit TOILS AND SNARES, the parallelequel/prequel to ALL IS SILENCE/STRAIGHT INTO DARKNESS for a BookBub promotion.
BookBub is currently as close to a sure thing as one can find in publishing today and they only accept about 10% of the books submitted to them for promotions. They also like books to have been out a while and have a significant number of reviews. What is a significant number of reviews? Who knows? More than thirteen, I may suppose. That’s how many TOILS AND SNARES has.
So, if you are interested in reading this apocalyptic novel, less profane and violent than its parallelequel, please send me an e-mail or comment on this post. I will give you a read and review copy of the e-book in the format of your choice: mobi/kindle, epub/nook/kobo/ibook, or pdf.
I would ask that you be willing to read it and give it an honest review. So far it has only received four and five stars. Now, I am not asking for three star reviews, unless the book deserves it in your opinion, in which case, I am asking for less than four/five stars. I’m afraid 13 reviews is still in the All these people are friends and relatives category even if they are neither friends nor family.
If you have already read TOILS AND SNARES and not left an honest review, would you please take a few minutes to write a few sentences and give me a few stars, or however many you feel the novel deserves? Here’s the Amazon link for leaving reviews. If you’re feeling especially generous, you might also past a copy into GoodReads Link here, if you’re a member. And if you’re not a member and you’re a reader, I’d suggest joining. It’s really cool!
To sweeten the pot, when TOILS AND SNARES gets 25 reviews, I will give away a signed paperback copy of either Deserted Lands Book I – ALL IS SILENCE or Book II – STRAIGHT INTO DARKNESS to one of those 25 reviewers! That’s pretty good odds. To make it even better odds, I won’t give the book to family or close friends. So, what are you waiting for? 😉 “Will you read my book?” If you have a friend or family member who reads Apocalyptic Fiction, tell them to send me an e-mail and accept my gratitude.
