It's Not Scary

It helps your favorite author.  It helps readers make a decision.
Don't know what to say?
Say "I liked it".


  1. I empathize: people will send you an email saying how much they liked your book - and not leave a review.

    I feel so pushy asking; most of the time I don't - but it is disheartening. Especially when reviews (and recommendations to friends) are so valuable.

    Did you do the image? It's cute.

  2. Hi Alicia

    I ask. I have a good fanbase for my Bittersweet Farm books but sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. I don't have a long attention span to keep after them.

    Are reviews valuable? I don't know/don't pay attention. I know that's what's said. Some say Amazon uses them and then other with say definitely doesn't matter to rank or visibility.

    Thank you. I did the text for the image but not the pumpkin carving.

    Thanks for visiting.

  3. With all the books you have out, it would be hard to keep track. You're way past me - I'm just getting my feet wet in the marketing, and it's exactly like having those same feet held to the fire. Painful.

    Hope you don't mind me commenting on older posts - I like to talk with other writers - there are never enough intelligent blog posts to fill my reading needs. Didn't realize you had one - your name doesn't have a link at TPV when you make a comment. I look for those.

  4. I'm way past you because I've been a professional writer my entire adult life--long time. It's not that I write a book every 3 weeks. If you really want to chat, go to one of my Facebook pages. The blog is dead. I don't have time for it. I'm giving away one of my romantic comedies now, Nothing Serious. You're welcome to it, if you'd like.
