Fifty book reviews. That’s my ask in a competitive indie world.

Five rules of book reviewing, courtesy Alethea Kontis.

I’m an independent author, which means I have to do pretty much everything, including requesting fifty book reviews from my readers. Before I get to the details of my ask, I want to take a moment to thank all of you who’ve purchased or read one of my books. Or you may have received an advance reading copy or a free e-book as a promotion. Or perhaps you’re still thinking about a purchase. Here’s a list of my most recent book-length fiction.

Now to my request: If you’ve read one or more of my books, please rate it or write an honest review. Just a couple of sentences, or a whole essay, if you like. You can post it on Amazon, Goodreads, or the book site where you bought the e-book or print book. Note the links above.

Why write a review? They are the single most important way indie authors like myself get noticed, either by other humans or the algorithms that seem to run everything these days. It’s also a way we get feedback from you, our readers. Tell us what you think.

Writing is hard work, but you make it very rewarding, not just for me, but for all indie authors. Thank you for supporting us.
