Speak your mind

Reviews are important for any book, but especially for small presses and lesser known authors. Ask any author/publisher. They will tell you what a reviews mean to their sales. If you have read a book and like it, or hate it, review it if you can. Whether you post it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, or submit it to a review site. Heck, why not post to all of them? By doing so, you ensure that small presses, their authors, and reading stay alive. The small presses are often the ones who take chances on the unknown, but extremely talented authors. They often publish books that the big publishers won't touch because the NY companies think the works are too risky or that they "won't sell". Let's prove them wrong.

On that note: Have you read Pervalism, Fade To Pale, Iron Horse Rider, Conspiracy of Angels, Dreams & Desires: A Collection of Romance and Erotic Tales? If you have, speak your mind and post a review at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, offer it to a review site, or shout about it on Gather, MySpace, Blogger, Shelfari, and so on. Spread it to the world just how marvelous these authors and their books are! Help keep their dreams alive and independent publishers too.

You haven't read them? What are you waiting for? Pick up a copy today or order them at your local bookstore or request one for your local library? But if you must have one now, stop by Wild Child or Freya's Bower and purchase one now.
