A day at the market.

Once a month in my hometown there is a trash and treasure market so I presented Attunga to see if there might be some interest.

Hoping for 9 or 10 sales – I didn’t expect much because how many trash and treasure hunters are likely to be looking for a scifi novel – I was delighted that 17 signed books went out. AND one was stolen!ย  lol a bit of a back-handed compliment.

If that many people from just one town are interested I might have to rethink my reluctance to chase publicity. ๐Ÿ™‚

My mistake!

My misunderstanding.

I was delighted to see a great review on Amazon and invited Attunga readers to make more. Little did I realise that Amazon requires any reviewers to have spent at least $50 on the site before reviews are eligible to them.

Lol – $50 a review is quite an unreasonable ask. No wonder I didn’t get any takers.

An alternative, which I think will help, is to make a review on Goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/

It’s free to join and seems to be quite interesting in its own right.

For a while I was under the misunderstanding that reviews on Goodreads showed up on Amazon but that’s not so. (I was tricked because the exact same review on Amazon was also the first for Attunga on Goodreads.)

 

Print run.

The proof copy arrived and, after one tiny fix which required going back to the typesetter, the actual print run is now in progress.

Tenderprint informs me that it’s just a matter of days till the Australian edition of Attunga arrives.
