Carol Barrowman reviewed my book this weekend. To a lot of authors, this is a big deal to begin with. The review was a rave, and I really appreciated it.
But what I couldn't have foreseen was the impact it would have on my sales. Witness to Death had been doing decent sales before the review came out. I was happy with how my foray into the ebook world had gone.
But then the review came out.
And sales exploded. In 4 days, I've sold close to 400 books.
GalleyCat picked up the story.
So, long story short, this was HUGE for me.
Before this weekend, I didn't know how important reviews are. From now on, they are VERY important to me. Good or bad.
And they're not just there to feed (or damage) my ego.
So, readers, how important are reviews to you?
Thank you so much, Carol Barrowman. I really, truly appreciate it.
