Instead, let’s talk about my little quandary. (Behave.)
I am looking to run a book promotion in United States, hoping that this will generate some interest in ‘Damp Dogs & Rabbit Wee.’ The trouble is, without a good few positive reviews on Amazon.com none of the ‘big hitter’ promo sites will accept the book. Not even though I can point them to the Amazon.co.uk site which presently has sixteen excellent, five-star comments.
No sales in USA = No reviews. No reviews in USA = No sales.
Weirdly, the one review (also five-star) that I’ve received from the States, replicated itself on the UK site. But for some reason, there doesn’t seem to be a reciprocal arrangement.
As I can’t determine who has posted on the UK site, I’m asking anyone who reads this post, and has previously posted a review there, if they would mind copying their comment to the Amazon.com site, and adding some reference to the comment first being added to the UK site on ‘xyz date.’
It really is time for me to move on from ‘Damp Dogs & Rabbit Wee,’ and get writing those promised ‘Soul Survivor,’ and ‘The Rambling Man,’ efforts. I can’t wait forever to crack the US market, but with your help ……
As a wee ‘thank you,’ here’s a funny video of cats stealing dogs’ beds.
