When I finished my first novel, “A Roman Peace in Briton: Blood on the Stone”, I must admit that I was quite pleased with myself. Little did I know that writing the novel was the easy part. I quickly learned that marketing and selling the novel is where an author makes their hay, so to speak. A huge part of marketing in today’s publishing world, is convincing the more credible book reviewers to take a gander at one’s work. As one published author recently shared with me, “A book review is worth a thousand ads.”
To that end, about a month ago I sent out a stack of my books to willing reviewers. Of course, I didn’t expect immediate results as I know how busy reviewers can be, many juggling careers, writing their own novels, and writing reviews. Yours truly has his own stack of books that I intend on whittling down and churning out reviews on. Be that as it may, here is one of the first reviews to emerge of “A Roman Peace in Briton: Blood on the Stone”, by Dana Burgess of Let’s Book it.
