Press the Like Button and Like The Crap Out Of Me?

Standard

Okay, all you ten or twelve people out there reading this blog, this is my shameless cry for help. I need to get more exposure for my ebook on Amazon.  More exposure means more sales, more sales means closer to retirement, retirement means more time to write more books.  So, if you enjoy my writing, helping me out with this Amazon thing will be mutually beneficial.

Here’s what I need you do to (whoa, look at me go, wearing my assertive pants), log on to Amazon.com, find my book, Miss Impractical Pants, you can search by title or the Author name, Katie Thayne.  Then I want you to like the crap out of me.

Doing any (preferably all) of the following would be extremely helpful:

  • Click the like button by the title
  • Review the book
  • Read (or skim) the other reviews and click the yes button if the review was helpful.  It would be extremely useful if you happened to find all the reviews helpful.
  • Scroll down below the reviews to the section that says ‘Tags customers associated with this item’, and either select the some of the existing tags or create your own. You can have up to fifteen tags so don’t be shy, click away.
  •  If you happen to be a zealous book reviewer, you can link my book page to other book reviews you feel might be appropriate.
  • You can also comment on other customer reviews to get some dialogue going.
  • If you’re really getting into the help Katie Thayne become a bestselling author campaign, you could also post the book link on your Facebook page, and give it a big shout out.
  • Even sharing this cry for help on your Facebook page couldn’t hurt any.

All this can be done for both the Kindle and the paperback version. So if you have some time to kill, I’d really appreciate your help.

Thanks!

Hello world!

Okay, so here goes my first ever blog as, author, Katie Thayne. And actually my first ever blog as my other, and real self, Jamie Pearce.  Who would have thought one person with two personas could be so behind the times?Though I love to write, I’m not so sure how I’ll take to this blogging stuff.  But here goes nothing.

Ever since I made the big announcement and posted my book, Miss Impractical Pants, on sale through Amazon.com, I’ve been barraged (okay, maybe not exactly barraged) with all kinds of questions.  I figured the best way to get anyone who is craving answers–umm, answers—would be to become a blogger.  That, and I’ve been counseled that all fledgling authors need to become immersed in all this social media business (though I’m digging my heels in when it comes to Twitter-talk about scary!).  I don’t think I’ll ever become immersed, but I’m giving it a shot.

Seeing as how I’m new to being an author and a blogger I’ll do my best to keep all my—what are people who read other people’s blogs called…followers, readers, masochists, saints, or in my case, family—updated on how the whole publishing, and life in general things go for a clueless author.   If nothing else, I’ll do my best to keep you entertained.

‘Til next time followers, readers, masochists, saints, and family,

Katie Thayne

P.S. Did I mention that I’m sans editor for this blogging venture, and that I’m a crap punctuator?  Did you know that punctuator is a word?  Who knew? That’s why writing is so cool; you stumble upon made-up real words all the time!
