Well, I was told, warned even, to brace myself for a 1* review when I undertook to let Turn of The Tide go on free download for c5 days. I’m not sure exactly when the free download period is ending, but as of now – midnight on the 5th day – it’s still in the top 20 on both the US and UK site. So I’m quite chuffed with that.
But more importantly, far from the 1* I was dreading, I have had two new reviews today on the US site – at least one of which is as a result of someone downloading the free book. And what a review – detailed, structured, comprehensive, literate and all round wonderful.
I don’t know Kate Martyn, but I am going to follow her blog – and will value her reviews of other books in the future.
And though I know the 1* may (and probably will) come, just now I’m feeling very encouraged and feel that the promo would have been worth it, just for those new reviews.
