In two short days, my birthday will be here. A little over two weeks ago, I got the question. You know the question I'm talking about. What do you want for your birthday?
While I could come up with plenty of things I'd like to have, I thought I'd attack this question from a writer's perspective. If you're trying to decide what to get me for my birthday, there are two things I'd really like to have.
I would love for one of my books to make a best seller list. This has been one of my lifelong dreams as a writer. I think it's one that every writer has, and it's one I need your help to achieve. All you have to do is buy my books. There are several to choose from and most are $3.99 or less. I'd say spending less than $5.00 on a birthday gift is a pretty good bargain.
The other thing I'd like is more Amazon reviews. Those reviews are important. Reviews let me know how you feel about my work, the good and the bad. Believe it or not, even a bad review helps me. Now, don't go rushing out and write a bad review. As a matter of fact, I would love it if you'd take a moment this Wednesday to write a good review. It doesn't have to be much. Rate the book and review the book. One of my books has a review on Amazon that literally says "Enjoyed this" and it's a five star review. I will absolutely take that. A short and sweet review is better than no review.
There it is, the only two things I want for my birthday. I suspect the first one will be a little more difficult to give, but that second one is easy. Best of all, it's free. You don't have to spend a dime to review my books.
Happy almost birthday to me!
