Review NETHERWORLD as one of the first

What say the readers?

HOW TO REVIEW NETHERWORLD

Booksprout – a place to get ARCs:

If you would like an ebook ARC, I would appreciate if you would trundle over to Booksprout, create a free reader/reviewer account, search for Netherworld, and download the ARC. You then read, post the review at Amazon, and tell Booksprout (a new UK company which I’m trying out for this book) you’ve done so. Fast and easy – and a big help to me because I don’t have to supervise the process while I’m recovering from some stuff.

Anyone can join Booksprout.

Wait for the October 19 DEAL

If you have followed this blog, you get informed of sales. My first Kindle Countdown Deal starts October 19, 2022, and allows you to buy the book starting at a mere $2.99. Go to the US site on that date and until the countdown is over a week later.

I’m sorry that the Countdown is only available in the US, but that is all Amazon allows.

Over the course of a week, the price will slowly rise to the list price, $9.99, so the earlier you buy, the lower the price you pay.

Buy the book NOW because you can’t wait and don’t want to fuss with the review site

Go to your own Amazon site (the US site is here), and pay full price in your country (I believe going to the US site from a different country will redirect you to you country’s site instead).

Wait a while until I’m better and fully functional again

which is going to take a while. Then contact me at abehrhardt at gmail, and request an electronic ARC.

You should mention in your review that the review is voluntary and not in exchange for anything.

Posting your review

To finish this process you need to be able to post reviews at Amazon, and that usually requires that you have bought things on Amazon, a minimum of $50 worth over the previous year. We buy so much stuff there that it isn’t a problem, but some people don’t, and won’t be able to post.

If you can’t post on Amazon, post somewhere – on your blog, on Goodreads, etc. – and just send me a link so I know where it is. Thanks!

Don’t worry about royalties

I price my books so a full price sale in any format pays me about $6. This is the 70% royalty Amazon offers self-published authors.

What format you prefer – and how much more it costs – depends on Amazon’s costs – and is fixed; paperbacks cost more because of the physical costs of printing and mailing; ebooks are relatively inexpensive because they’re easily delivered to you in bits via the internet.

But my royalty is the same.

Ditto Kindle Unlimited

where I earn about the same royalty if you download the book AND read the whole thing. You have to have the paid KU subscription, and it counts pages.

So there you have it – how to read Pride’s Children: NETHERWORLD and leave a review – in several different forms.

Especially because it will be a while before I can do much actual marketing.

And I am looking forward to every single review.

Thank you!
