Not going to ask people to buy my book this time.
Nah, uh. Nope.
Going to announce TUSKERS publication, and that's that.
But I ain't going to ask. No sir.
Not going to ask people to buy TUSKERS on Amazon in the first week, even though sales in that first week have a huge effect on the ongoing sales of the book. Amazon is the big kahuna, the 500 pound canary in the mine, or whatever you want to call it. If I can get up the rankings by having a good first week, it has a huge effect on the algorythms.
Not going to ask.
Nope, nada. Not going to do it.
Not going to ask even though I think there is a really good chance the book could do well. Becoming a bestseller on Amazon really isn't as hard as you might think. A bunch of sales consolidated in a concise timespan -- say the 12th of January thru the 19th of January -- sales my book may garner anyway over a longer period -- well, that can have an outsized effect on the rankings.
But I'm not going to ask.
Not going do it.
Not going to ask, even though I think this is a very fun book that most people would enjoy. I've not felt this confident about a book ever.
But I ain't going to do it.
Please, people, don't throw me in that briar patch of having to ask.
TUSKERS, by Duncan McGeary. Released on Amazon on January 12, 2015.
