Now here’s my conundrum, my book The Guardian’s Heart has gotten great reviews. Some end up just on blogs while others are added to Amazon and Goodreads. The Guardian’s Heart even earned a Best Book review from LASR. Think it’s easy to earn it? Think again, only six books earned the honor in January even thought close to fifty books are reviewed each month. Although the critics love the book I’m not seeing the readership I’d like. I feel like Cheers. Is The Guardian’s Heart the “Best Book You’re Not reading?” Or since all my books that have reviews have had positive ones am I the “Best Author You’re Not Reading.”
Unlike a TV Guide showing up in a mailbox and sitting around for three or four weeks on someone’s end table a blog lasts forever. Then again unlike a magazine after one day you have to search for reviews on a blog. Author’s can link the reviews, but again it’s not like it’s sitting there for you to discover unless you know the author. Then the author wouldn’t be someone you’re not reading.
As an author you’re not reading how can I reach you? There are plenty of author’s out there you may not be reading. I’ve decided to create a list. In fact, I’m going to start with of course my own self-praise because if I don’t believe in myself who will. Unlike most lists feel free to add authors you’ve enjoyed too, just avoid NYT Best Sellers or ones that have over 75 reviews on one book, they’re being read. If you haven’t been mentioned don’t take it as a slight, I had to stop the list somewhere.
