One Week Since Release – Some Reviews!

Hello, folks.

When it comes to being a romance author in the new millennium, I am a very tiny fish in a gigantic pond. I have been around for some time but have never really “hit.” And I’m still not there. I might never be there. But my goal has always been to build and engage with a base of “true fans.” Folks who honestly connect with my writing and aren’t just buying my books because one happens to be on sale in a bargain newsletter that week. Now, I’m all for bargain eBooks, but some of those newsletters are tough for an author to get into, especially the ones that will really make an impact, even temporarily, on an author’s ability to gain visibility on the electronic storefronts.

You guessed it. I have a tough time getting placements on the most important bargain sites, which is one of the reasons I don’t have sales on my books very often.

Back when I started publishing (as opposed to writing – that came long before), I used to joke with my reader peeps about my “dozen fans.” Those readers on whom I could count to buy a new book come release day. Well, guess what? I have cracked 40. That’s a long way from the 1000 true fans that a creator of content (like writers and musicians) evidently needs to earn a living–but! I have cracked my Faithful Forty! Baby steps, right?

Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered GETTING OVER BRETT or bought the book on release day or during this last week, the first week of the book’s release. I hope you’ve read it already. If you have, I hope you enjoyed it. And please tell your friends. Maybe leave a review. Reviews are extremely important to authors in today’s marketplace.

I was lucky enough to be able to build up some Advanced Reader Reviews for GETTING OVER BRETT, and, on Amazon, the book now has over 50 reviews in a week. I am pretty excited about that. Want to hear some reader reactions to the story? Of course you do, or you wouldn’t have read this far (click away now if you’ve just changed your mind).

5 Stars ~ “I absolutely loved this book and story. It caught my attention from the blurb and definitely hooked me right into the story once I started reading. I couldn’t find anything wrong with this book or story at all, that’s how much I enjoyed reading this book.”

5 Stars ~ “There were parts that made me laugh out loud. The ending was the happily ever after that they both wanted. I really enjoyed this book.”

5 Stars ~ “Love all books from Cindy this was my favorite. Really enjoyed the characters and story line. Also loved the cover of the book.”
