How great is StoryCartel.com?

I wrote a weeks ago about how I posted my book on StoryCartel.com in an effort to garner at least one review. Up until that point I hadn’t received any reviews and it was bumming me out a little.

Firstly, I have gotten my first review over on the Amazon UK site:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/R29801XMGTNVJN/ref=cm_cr_dp_title?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00D9SRT9U&channel=detail-glance&nodeID=341677031&store=digital-text

And it’s five stars, so that’s good. It’s a relief to see someone enjoying the book and know all of my hard work is paying off. I write in order that readers enjoy reading my books, so someone loving the book is an awesome feeling. Thanks to Tony Stores for the review, should you see this.

I thought I’d give a mini-update on how things are going on StoryCartel. My book has been downloaded 22 times from the site, which is excellent. Since I don’t have an email list or a large following, 22 times is really good, in my opinion. That doesn’t mean I’ll get 22 reviews, of course, but if I get a 10-1 review ratio, then I might get 2 reviews. 2 more reviews would be a real boost.

Finally, the sequel “The Bite of Monsters” is well on its way to publication in September. I’m in the middle of copy-editing it and getting all the typos and grammatical errors out. It’s a little tedious and takes a long time, but it’s worth it to make sure the book is as bug free as possible.

Bytarend is fast, fun fantasy that'll have you on the edge of your seat. Hard Vacuum is hard-talking, violent science fiction and my tribute to 80s action movies.
