Happy Saturday indies!
All right. So here’s the deal! Following on from the incredibly successful FREE Skype consultations that I have been conducting, the one issue that seems to be keeping you all awake at night is a lack of reviews. SO, with that in mind, I am going to start working with my team to put in place some services around this.
This blog post is a shout out to:
* Be willing to provide regular, honest reviews for other indie authors.
I will be honest and admit that it kind of bugs me that a lot of indie authors cry about the lack of reviews…but are unwilling to help fellow indie authors out by reading and reviewing…You will get out of this what you put into it. However, I am aware that Amazon have strict policies about “Review Swaps” – This service will, therefore, be designed in such a way that:
* You don’t receive a review from an author that you have reviewed a book for
* You don’t review a book and then receive a reciprocal review from that author
You will simply be:
In a regular reviewing pool
Your book will regularly be reviewed by members of that pool
Again, I reiterate, I am only looking for people that are thick-skinned enough to take constructive criticism of their work. If you only want to see 5-star reviews of your work, then this service will not be for you.
Interested in principle? Have additional questions? Contact me.
For those of you that have read my bio, you will be aware that I suffered with endometriosis in my mid-twenties. It is a really horrible disease and there is not enough being done to raise awareness.
In an effort to re-address the balance, I would like to share Claire's story, a fellow sufferer who reached out to me via this website.
If you, or anyone you know has been diagnosed with endometriosis and would like to share your story, please contact me and I will be happy to post it here.
At 33, doctors told me that my Endo was so bad; I had no choice but to have a full hysterectomy so this is what I did. I ended up with an internal bleed after the operation and was in hospital for a week. I wish I could tell you I am pain free now but the Endo is now on my bladder, bowel and kidney. I just had an operation on my bladder to make it bigger because the Endo has made it smaller.
