iUniverse announced this week that The Bridge Club has received the Reader’s Choice Recognition Award which is based on sales figures. I’m delighted and thank you! Onward to the Star program!
I’m so grateful to all the readers who are sending me their comments about the story. That’s the part of writing I enjoy the most. It’s incredibly rewarding for a writer to hear that his or her story resonates with others! Book Clubs are telling me the final chapter sparked lively debate. I do confirm if they correctly identify the protagonist in that chapter but do not reveal the answer if they are incorrect. Back to the drawing board! I also find it interesting to see how many don’t want to know because they cared about all of the women too much. So good!
If you purchased The Bridge Club through one of the booksellers online, please post a review on their website. If you purchased the book at a book store but have an Amazon or other online account, you can also pull up The Bridge Club and post a review. These reviews are very important and can dramatically affect the sale of the book. Click here for the right page on Barnes and Noble and also Chapters/Indigo (although they still don’t have my cover art displayed, which is very annoying!).
Here are two other simple things you can do that are incredibly helpful:
1. When you go to the book listing on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca, if you keep scrolling down the page (below reviews and other stuff), you will come to a section marked “Tags”. If you see boxes already checked, just click where it asks if you agree with the tags. If the boxes aren’t check, please check them. Feel free to add any other tags you feel are applicable.
2. Amazon.com now has a “like” button beside every book they have listed. Please click here to go to it.
It may not seem like much but doing these little tasks is extremely helpful to building the profile of a book. I told you I was learning a lot! These are things you can do for every author when you purchase a book but most of us don’t know about it. So for myself and every other author you help, I thank you!
