I love the image above, it is so very suitable and appropriate. It describes completely the process we have recently gone through. You see, sales of the book "Relationships" by R.A. Kahn has been a bit slow for a while. So we sat down to problem solve what we might be able to do to help to increase sales once more. Just as the image illustrates, we began by identifying the problem. Next we considered what options we had. We look a look at the information listed on Amazon for the book and decided that a possible solution would lie in obtaining more book reviews.
So we set to work and have begun sourcing publications and readers who might be able to do a book review. We have begun submitting requests and thus far have 4 who replies so far with 3 of them agreeing to do a book review. We have sent off the books and then wait, hope and pray that they reach their destination timeously and safely.
We have just heard that the first book has been received and that the person who will be reading it likes the cover and the blurb on the back on the cover. Well that is two good points towards a positive review.
Now we are back to waiting, hoping and praying that the other two arrive safely. In the meantime, we have more work to do to source suitable publications that do book reviews. If anyone reading this knows of publications that will review a teenage novel, please either email us or write a comment in the comments section below.
It is so very exciting to be a part of the book world. A part of writing and creating good reading material and then doing the work to promote it so that the right readers and find the books. What a fun process.

There is much work involved in self-publishing a book. We are hard at work following up on leads for further book reviews. Sourcing appropriate publications, websites and blogs. Constructing suitable letters or emails to request a book review. Following up on replies that come in, the list continues.
We very much look forward to receiving replies and better yet to reading the reviews. Lots of suspense on this end as we wait to hear a response to requests and to our books arriving safely.
In the meantime, we'd like to remind you of this weeks Special Offer. It's available for THIS WEEK ONLY, so don't miss out.
What's it about? Well the wonderful novel for teens "Relationships" by R.A. Kahn is on Special for This Week. That's right, you can get a discount but you need to hurry as the clock is ticking.
