I think every person who puts their words out there hopes their story will be well received, yet they have to brace themselves for the alternative.
Your notes, your messages – you enjoying this first book so much that you take the time to encourage others to read it too…
I cannot believe the positive reception.
I am so… grateful.
This isn’t even a milestone. For so many books – I can’t tell you how many wonderful, amazing, incredible books out there – they *never* get…
They only end up with a handful of reviews to show for it.
Some of these books have been published and collecting reviews for years.
STOLEN has been published for officially… ONE MONTH TODAY.
100 REVIEWS AMAZING REVIEWS!
That’s… this is…
I CAN’T EVEN!
Why are reviews so important?
They help future readers decide if they want to invest their money and time into checking it out and that’s huge (Someday I might be able to write as a full time job. I’m scared to dream but you should SEE the nice things you have shared with me about how something I wrote made you feel. I’m tearing up just writing that. Your notes have meant the world to me. So yeah. Dreaming.) — but more reviews means a special cog is added to the Amazon algorithm and now STOLEN will come up in more searches, be offered more often as a “You might be interested in” and “Other Customers Enjoyed”.
MORE chances for it to get seen, borrowed, bought, read, reviewed – repeat.
YOU, my readers – (HOLY WTF I HAVE READERS) – are THE BEST.
YOU are wonderful, amazing, incredible.
