Remember how I told you that I was going all out to try and get some reviews for “Fatal Forgery”? Well, after a lot of silence and then a slow start, I am finally starting to see some returns on my effort. The latest is a review by Debbie Young, a well-respected writer herself and a much-followed book blogger and reviewer. And it is such a lovely five-star review – plenty of detail, with specific comments, and encouragement for “Plank 2”! You can see it here on Amazon (if it’s not obvious, re-sort the reviews to put the newest first). And Debbie – being, as I say, an author herself and therefore well aware of the importance of reviews – has kindly put her review on Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com and Goodreads, to get as much coverage as possible.
So now here’s a question for you: how can I carry on Debbie’s good work and wring as much juice as possible from that review? I have thanked her on Twitter (that’s something else she did, to reach her 6,300+ followers) and retweeted her Tweet to my (small in number but enormous in quality) 95 followers. I am writing this post. And of course I shall quote liberally from Debbie’s review (with her permission) on “Plank 2”. I’m reluctant to put another review link on Facebook – my family and friends are probably all Planked out by now. Should I forward it to the three booksellers who are stocking the physical book – given that the review appears on Amazon…? Or maybe I could send them the Goodreads version instead. Any other ideas?
