Ways You Can Help

As some of you already know, my novel—The Awakened—is now available for sale at the following online retailers:
 - Amazon (click here)
 - AmazonUK (click here)
 - Barnes&Noble (click here)

For those of you who have already read the book, thanks so much for your encouraging comments and continued support.  For those of you who haven't yet read it, click here to read a synopsis.

Word-of-mouth endorsement is the most effective way for a self-published novel to gain visibility.  So, if you’d like to know how to help, here are a few ideas:

 1. Buy It: This may seem obvious, but there are a zillion books available these days and sales ranking is critical to getting noticed.
 2. Read It: My hope is that you will thoroughly enjoy the story, but you’ll have to read it to know whether or not it’s something you want to endorse.
 3. Write a Review: Visit the online retailers mentioned above and write an honest review. If you liked it, explain why. If you’re part of a book club or online readers group like GoodReads.com, these are also great forums to express your opinions about what you’ve read.
 4. Social Networking: If you’re on Facebook, Twitter, or have a blog, you can post a comment and a link to my book or my blog
 5. Word-Of-Mouth: Tell others about it.

Thanks for your help!
