Fan Appreciation!

STATUS: Whenever 5 or 6 pm rolls around, it always catches me by surprise. Last I looked it was only 1 in the afternoon or what have you.

What’s playing on the XM or iPod right now? WITCHCRAFT by Frank Sinatra

Can I tell you how much I heart fans of my clients’ books?

I just think this is the most fun review I’ve seen in a long time for Lisa Shearin’s BEWITCHED AND BETRAYED (which by the way came “this close” to landing on the NYT list when it released). Actually I don’t know that for sure since NYT doesn’t disclose their algorithm for sales connected to landing on the list but in watching other books with X number of sales hit the list, my theory was not far-fetched. It didn’t and there was much sadness. But still, with fans like this, who needs NYT?

I’m particularly fond of the pirate pez dispenser!

    I am struck by how much *better* this video is than the ones I have seen authors do. 🙂 When it comes time to do a video clip, hire a teen. Lesson learned.

    That is by far the BEST endorsement for a book I have ever seen. And yup, that does mean it’s much better than any and all professional book trailers I’ve seen.

    Great book. Great Author. Amazing review video!

    I think the “feisty, strong female” character is becoming something of a cliche that we (men and women) could well do without.

    Oh yeah . . . have a character(s) like this, but please don’t describer her as such!

    It’s embarrassing (for the reviewer).

    I couldn’t help but notice that the reviewer looked a lot like the character on the cover! Excellent job.

    Well, she makes me want to read it! If I ever get published she gets a free copy of my book just for being so cool! (And who knows, maybe she’ll be that kind to my work too?)

    Thank you, everyone! Jen is simply an amazing fan — and such talent. Yeah, I confess, quite a few of the “Views” on YouTube were mine. ; ) I’m having my webmaster permanently put her video on my site. I’ve been blessed with the BEST fans!

    I can only find the first few books in the series on the Kindle. I haz a sad.

    The review sold me on the book, but I am going to wait until I can buy it on my Kindle. In the meantime, I will catch up on the rest in the series! Thanks Kristin!
