Please forgive me for taking so long to respond. This is the first opportunity I have had to do so. I would appreciate a review and would like to send you a copy of my novel if you are still interested. Yes. I have a Facebook page and would appreciate you dropping by it's at http://www.facebook.com/#!/Deceit.by.WC. I'll email you a pdf. at said address. Thanks again.
Caren, It looks like you are into a number of things of which I am either not acquainted or unsure of the benefits. For example, what is Smashwords and how does it work? Also, I have not yet gone with amazon.com as it seems to me that it will yield me little to no monetary benefit. Did you self-publish by establishing your own company (which is what I did) or go the ebook/publish on demand route?
As for reviews, please let me know which format is preferred? I generally send 1 or 2 chapters (pdf) to interested writers, or a full hardcopy (with a request to pass the book along to a school, library, senior or child) if requested. You might wonder why I include seniors above; it's because the series was partly written for uplifting their role in the community. And I've found that they really enjoy them too.
I would be interested in doing that. I'm finishing up a review for a friend of mine. Another person who wanted to trade review hasn't sent me her book yet. So I should have some time to read yours over this coming weekend. If you read Tim's book, my book isn't as sports heavy. It is more about journalism than sports - even though sports is the backdrop to it all. Though sports fans would be interested in it, I think non sports fans would like it - and the people I know that have read it and are not sports fans enjoyed it and learned a lot about the job. It is also a quick read. You wouldn't have to read all the game stories and attached articles to some of the chapters - even though some of the articles are worth reading. So you can email me your book if you want and I can email you a PDF of mine. Thanks.
I briefly read some of your writing and enjoyed what I found, and could provide a short review. Although I did not grow up owning a dog, I have been able to relate to your writing. Where would you like me to post the review?
Hi Caren! Your situation sounds similar to mine! I worked to finish my book nonstop once I lost my job. Looking forward to perusing your website! This is mine in case you may want to take a look: www.tracyconway.com Thanks!
