Now: How you can help Michiko and Beth! After the cut.
I'm hoping that if you're dropping by, it's because you're a fan of the Monkey Queen series, or at least interested in reading the books. We could use a little push to get the ball rolling leading up to the next book's release, especially in this crowded e-book marketplace. If you want to help, here are some things you can do.
Buy the books. I know, obvious as all get out. But even a few sales can make a difference. (And if you're on the fence, check back on Tuesday 2/17...)
Leave a review. I'm genuinely grateful to the readers who have taken a moment to say a few words about my books. I'm hoping that more of you will do so, since the more reviews we get, the more attention the books get. I won't pressure you to do it, but I'd be happy if you would, especially on Amazon, the half-ton gorilla of e-book sales.
Tell a friend or two. Word of mouth is awesome, so feel free to use it! Blog it, tweet it, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, or even just mentioning it over triple flat white frappes.
Leave a comment here. I don't bite, really! Ask a question about the books or the writing process, tell me what works and doesn't, talk about how come it took me so long to watch Face Off. I'll be glad to hear from you! You can even send email if you don't want to go public, at (remove spaces etc) Monkey Queen Books (at) gmail dotcom.
And above all else, Keep reading. Book four is nearly done, book five is underway, and I've got big plans for books 6-8 and beyond. Stick with us! And thanks for reading!
