Recently I ran a promotion on Fussy Librarian. If you aren’t a subscriber, I highly recommend the service as they send out daily newsletters on free and price reduced ebooks and series. I have used the service several times over the past year to find new readers.
From these successful promotions and a consistent ranking in the top 100 free adventure fantasy, and coming of age books on Amazon, Luza will overtake Running With Vince as my number one selling book in the near future.
Nevertheless, despite this ranking and teaching at a school where Luza and Riley are hits with the tween and middle grade crowd, I’m still unsure whether the book would do better in the congested young adult market. No matter, at this point the big thing for this series is to continue the positive word of mouth and to get more readers. That’s where you come in.
I have to admit it but I hate asking for reviews. Ask any author and the majority will tell you, we want the book to speak for itself. There is also the hope that after you read the book, you’d want to leave a rating and or write a few words, because without those words/rating, the likelihood of any book reaching a greater reading base is negligible. Without new reviews, books languish and join the millions of other books on the market that collect dust on virtual bookshelves.
Should you read this and be intrigued enough to read Luza, please leave a review whether bad or good. Something is better than nothing. If you are an adult with children between the ages of 10 – 15, pass on the book to them and ask what they thought. These little things will add up, and before we know it, there will be more people clamoring for the remaining five books in the series.
That’s not a typo. There are plans for five more books, five more adventures, and five more reasons to love this series.
Self promotion time has ended and now I must return to the non blogging world. Enjoy your week ahead.
