Unusual Request

This is one unusual request, at least from me.

At first I thought, what the heck, no need to ask because people will do it. What I didn’t take into account was the fact that most readers may not even be aware of this.

Amazon changed their ratings’ system. That means, someone like me, who has okay sales but no reviews, gets tossed into the black abyss of Amazon’s site. Their system now goes by how many 5 stars, 4…3…2…1…0, and then there’s some calculations that go on, yada yada, and the books with the greater number of 5 star ratings get front and center, first page, etc. 4 star ratings get second page recognition, and so on…

Here is my request:

If you have two minutes to go into your account, after reading my book, any of my books you’ve read, and leave a one or two sentence description with your star rating, that would go a long way to helping me get a little more recognition.

The sentence can be as simple as: “This was a great book.” Or as lengthy as a play-by-play of the novel. Though, I would ask that you not give a complete play-by-play. More is less, less is more. 😉

I would truly appreciate the time taken by you to leave a tiny review. Besides, I’d love to know what others think of Annika and her world.

Thanks so much for indulging me. Have a great day!
