Dear Readers of ebooks, specifically on Amazon but elsewhere as well,
Please take a moment and rate the books you read, especially by independent authors. It makes a world of difference!
I know from my sales stats that at least 100 people have downloaded my newest book and my KENP score (pages read) is up in the thousands so people are reading it. Two lovely people gave me favorable ratings on GoodReads, which I am grateful for, but my Amazon rating remains at a 1 star with a nasty review by a small-minded troll which makes it look like one jerk read my crap book and hated it rather than the lots of readers, some of whom thought it was at least OKish.
Just throw those indie writers a bone. Give a few stars. Make them feel like they aren’t total crap for trying.

Whoa! Check out the stats now!
Apparently, all you have to do is give it away and those stats go way down. Neat! Thanks to everyone who downloaded it!
Now what do I have to do to get ya’ll to review it?
How about some quick, fun, and free entertainment this week?
From January 23 to January 27, I’m using my KDP promotion option to give my little nugget of a story away for free. Grab yours, give it a read and then, be a dear and leave a little review? I’ll take however many stars you’re willing to give, good folk. Because THAT is how Amazon works, ain’t it?
From the author’s notes and character studies, these four flash fiction stories take you inside the world of the novel The Homecoming Effect and the character of Bunny whose motivations and backstory aren’t always as they appear. Each short story expands on the character’s inner workings, from her fierce–albeit sometimes misguided–Mama Bear instinct to her complicated relationship with “the truth”.
P.S. The Homecoming Effect is on sale starting next week. You could have both books for less than a cup o’ joe.
My grandmother called yesterday to tell me she finished reading my book, the paperback version of The Homecoming Effect I gave her for Christmas. She said she loved it and read it in two days. She says she’d very proud and impressed.
I know she’s my Gramgram and she has to be proud of me but it’s still nice to hear, you know? Also, she’s an avid trashy romance reader and yet, my book (with a few trashy parts here and there) still kept her attention. I call that a win!
Actually, Grandma, it’s $2.99 for the ebook version:
