Five Stars for Five Dollars

Here's an interesting story about how a guy made a ton of money writing online reviews for books. What's really interesting is that, slimy as it sounds, he made a lot of money because there was tremendous demand for his services, and there was tremendous demand because online reviews sell books. Lots of books. The more reviews, the more books. Just read how a self-published author became a bestselling author in large part because he bought a bunch of online reviews.

Which is to say, if you've read my book, The Sleeping and the Dead and you enjoyed it, please go to Amazon or Barnes and Noble and write a review, even if it's just a couple of sentences of glowing praise, topped with five stars, etc.

And if you haven't read my book, stop by The Booksellers at Laurelwood on Thursday, August 30th at 6PM, where I'll be reading and signing The Sleeping and the Dead. Hope to see you there!
