Reviewers and Marketing

In trying to figure out how to market ebooks (another steep learning curve) I've been told that the way to make sales on Amazon is to get Amazon reviewers. Fair enough. Not sure how that works (That is, having a bunch of reviews up doesn't drive people to your book's page, does it?) but I'm willing to give it a go.

My new collection - Killing Ways 2 will be seeing the light of day within a week or so and I'd like some reviews. It is six stories long and totals about 22k words. The stories are all noir-ish type stories, all previously published; one of them won a Derringer award from the Short Mystery Fiction Society, and another story was nominated for a Derringer, so they're not bad.

If you've got a blog that you're willing to review the book on (good, bad, or indifferent - it's your blog) or if you're willing to type up a few words for Amazon when the book goes live, let me know and I'll send you a pdf file with the stories.

Again, I'm not looking to control the outcome of your review, just trying to ensure that there are some reviews out there. I think the stories are quality stuff and you'll be happy (unless you don't like noir/hardboiled).

If you're wondering whether it would be worth your time, you can, of course, splurge on my first collection Killing Ways:Stories. It's $.99 until the end of the month.
