#62 Trying to get reviews and messing with pricing


One of the things that gets a the Amazon algorithm moving is plenty reviews. Unfortunately with the launch of #jimanddave I didn’t have many reviews and one of those was a one star which destroyed my average.

This week I’ve been trying to set this right. I emailed my mailing list asking for reviews and joined a Facebook group in which authors read and review books (not in bilateral agreements, that would be against Amazon policy).

I have already read and reviewed Flowers in December and I am currently reading another book which I hope to review soon. In return I hope that other authors will read and review my book.

I’ve also been messing around with the pricing of Living with Saci. I had set the price to free in the hope of increasing its readership but I have returned its price to $2.99 (or equivalent ) as and incentive for people to  sign up to my email list for a free copy
