“I have a surprise for you!” my publisher said, grinning manically. Well, I assume he was grinning manically; he lives in Canada and the conversation was over Google chat, so I can’t be sure. “May 9 is your day!” he added.
A long pause. My fingers hovered over the keyboard, trying to decide how best to insult him. Instead I settled for: “Okay.”
As expected, my (apparent) lack of enthusiasm prompted him into leaking more details — he’s a little like a child, desperate for a reaction. So I kept playing the hard-to-get game until he revealed all: I was to be featured on Kindle Nation Daily.
For those of you unfamiliar with KND, it’s a great little site with a considerable subscriber base that offers daily emails listing free and bargain books available on the Kindle. Authors and publishers can sponsor the site, and in return get a great deal of exposure for their book, which then hopefully leads to finding a whole new set of readers.
In short: this is a great opportunity to get Hungry For You in front of an entirely new audience. And it’s a solid step in my grand master plan of taking over the world!
But taking over the world is a difficult business, and it’s impossible to do alone. This is where you come in.
Taking Over The World – Part 1
The more reviews a book has on the day of its Kindle Nation Daily spotlight, the better that book tends to do. This is, after all, the age of peer reviews. As a reader, you have never had more power in your hands.
So if you’ve taken the time to read Hungry For You, or even have already written a review on your blog, you would have my undying gratitude if you posted a line or two on amazon.com (it’s got to be the US site).
I would really like to get up to 15 reviews on there by next Monday, May 9th.
It doesn’t have to be anything complicated: even just a sentence or two of how the book made you feel would help.
Hungry For You currently has 8 reviews up, so I only need 7 trusty helpers to take over the world. Up for grabs, as compensation, are high-ranking positions in the new world government I’ll establish. You pick your job title (except Chief Chocolate Taster; I’ve taken that one already).
What are you waiting for? Let’s show Amazon just what us zombie fans are capable of!
