At the start of the week my second novel, The Apprentice In The Master’s Shadow, was finally published. I am unsurprised that it hasn’t become a bestseller. As a sequel, its fortunes were almost entirely dependent on the number of people who have read my debut novel, which isn’t many. With that reality at the forefront of my mind I knew it would be a waste of time to undertake a significant marketing campaign in the lead up to publication day. The only way any meaningful interest in my latest release will be generated is for more people to read the first book of the series.
Though I had initially been content to allow my new book to sink or swim on its own merit, yesterday I reluctantly decided to take some proactive steps to increase the size of my readership. One of the most effective means for creating interest in a book is word of mouth. This can only be achieved once the number of people who have read a particular title reaches a critical mass. At present there simply aren’t enough reviews for my first novel, The Exercise Of Vital Powers, to attract new readers, so to address this problem I am hereby giving all you avid bookworms the opportunity to request review copies of the ebook from StoryOrigin.
To read a synopsis for The Exercise Of Vital Powers, visit its Goodreads page, where you can also read reviews from other people. If it sounds like a book you’d be interested in reading and reviewing, all you have to do is visit the link at the end of this post and fill out the request form for a review copy. When your request is accepted you will then be able to download the ebook in the format of your choice.
Thank you for your interest in my book. If you take up the opportunity to claim a review copy I hope you will enjoy it and become a fan of my work.
