What a wild week. The launch was a success, and 30 copies of my eBook activated at the stroke of midnight. At least two people have been reading on Kindle Unlimited, and several people have had paperbacks shipped and received! Not to mention the hardcovers which ship later this month. I’m so excited this many people are eager to read my work.

To celebrate the launch, and to celebrate our sixth wedding anniversary, my wife and I got some tasty tex-mex. Nothing says love and victory quite like a good burrito. I’ve been taking it easy on the writing front for a while now, as I was all-consumed with the production of Pallas Lost. It’s time to shake off the cobwebs and get back into the writer’s seat.

Which brings me to the point of today’s short blog. Please, share and encourage your friends and family to read Pallas Lost as well. Every little bit helps. And once you’ve read it, please review it. Reviews on Amazon are absolutely critical to the success of my novel. The algorithm demands a sacrifice, unfortunately. So please, write a review on Amazon, and Goodreads if you can, and help me become a success. They literally down rank you if you don’t get reviews. It’s a necessary evil in today’s digital marketplace.

I really can’t stress enough how important sharing and reviewing are. It’s by far the hardest part of being an independently published author; the percentage of people that review after purchasing is, like, low single digits. Please help me blow that out of the water. The more reviews, the more people get to see my novel.

I have a lot of irons in the fire right now, and it is a difficulty to deal with everything, everywhere, all at once. (I really need to see that movie.) I’m doing my best to juggle it all, and I am looking forward to recruiting Alpha readers for Pallas Found. It’s going to happen soon, I promise. Perhaps even as early as next month!
