The importance of reviews

 

ID-10086801

I have always been an avid reader and prior to becoming an author I would never leave a review at the completion of an e-book. I know that books are subjective so I felt it would make little difference to someone what I had to say about the book I had read.

Now¬†that I’m a published author my perspective has changed completely. I never realised the weighting that Amazon puts on books based upon the number of reviews and their star rating. The best way you can support an author is to leave a review. It helps their ranking and affects the way Amazon lists the book and recommends it to readers.

If you appreciate the creative skill, the time and effort an author puts into writing something that has transported you into your imagination, please take a few minutes to leave a review.

If you are interested in reading my new novel ‘In Another Life’, it will be free on Amazon Kindle this weekend (Aug 6 & 7). I hope you enjoy it and please leave a review!

FREE ‘Horrorscopes’

I’ve been busy writing another short story so while I’m polishing that, I’ve made my short story ‘Horrorscopes’ free on Amazon on 26th and 27th July. 

When a frail old man is refused service in a cafe, as he can’t place his order electronically, he is ridiculed by the waiting patrons. In a rage he slams down a tattered old magazine on the counter before storming out of the cafe. 

As each of the waiting customers reads their horoscope in the discarded magazine they are surprised to find how accurate the prediction is, although not in the way they first thought. 

Warning: You may never look at your horoscope in the same way ever again!
