Hey, I Could Use Some Help

I’ve been looking at the books Daughter of Atlas will be competing with in SPFBO 4.  Here’s the Goodreads list.

There are some very experienced indie authors on this list, I see, as well as some noobs like myself.  The competition is strong.  Just glancing at the list, I see Daughter of Atlas has only a one-star rating!  This is because only one person has given it a star rating, and that rating is one star.  (As I understand it, some people on Goodreads like to mark their “to be read” books with a one-star rating. Yes, that’s it!)

So, it looks kind of bad to see that one star in there among all those three- and four-star ratings.  I’m hoping you can help me with that.  If you read and enjoyed Daughter of Atlas, and have a Goodreads account, hop on over there and give the book a rating of more than one star.  Whatever you think is an accurate rating.  (A review would be nice to, if you have the time.)

I’d just like the book to make a better first impression on Goodreads, for the judges, and anyone who might be following the contest.

Thanks! I really appreciate the help.

DoA in SPFBO 4

I’ve decided to do something fun with my book Daughter of Atlas. I hope you’ll follow along.

I’ve entered into the Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off 4, a big book review tournament for, as noted, indie-published fantasy novels.  It was created by indie author Mark Lawrence.  Eight bloggers or teams of bloggers will review 300 books. Each team will choose one semi-finalist to be read and reviewed by all the blog teams.  The final winner wins, well, the title of SPFBO 4 winner, fame and hopefully fortune.

My book was assigned to Team Weatherwax, and Tome & Tankard is the actual blog that will review my book.  Wish me luck!

You can follow SPFBO 4 on Facebook if you’d like to stay apprised of the contest.

And here’s a Goodreads list of all the competing books. And a list of the books for Team Weatherwax here.

I’m very happy and excited to be a part of this, and I’d like to thank Mark Lawrence, all the bloggers, and also all the authors for taking part in this wonderful opportunity for the indie book community.

The contest will begin in August.  I’ll keep you apprised.
