The one thing social media promoting has brought home to me is that regardless of how many 'friends' you think you have or may have acquired, the internet is still a very, very lonely place. You're not a 'friend' - you're a statistic. That's fine and all part of social media. I say 'almost hardly worth it' because there has still been an excellent flip side to this. 8 reviews and everyone of those reviews has been 5 Star. For first time authors it's hard getting your wares before an agent or publishing house - the real muscle you need behind you, it can take bloody years - but that's the 'golden ticket' you need, clearly. So I'll continue that search for the agent, the publisher, but in the mean time go independent to chase those reviews that may help achieve that mission. Reviews are the LIFEBLOOD of any new title, they generate further sales.

Please feel free to share the blog too, apologies to those that have already bought it. I certainly originally had no intention of giving it away for free, this is just an all too necessary promotional tactic to generate those reviews, but a HUGE THANK YOU for buying it.
