Kind of the same issue I had with Bruce Springsteen. I moved to NJ (close to his hometown) when “Born in the
” was released. I had never
heard of him before, so I figured he was popular there because he was local and it took me awhile to realize he had become popular everywhere. U.S.A.
So… what do you think? Has reviewing books (either on Amazon, B&N, or Goodreads) always been an issue (and I’m just noticing it because I’m an author) or is it a new thing because of the glut of self-publishing? This curious mind wants to know!
By the way, on Saturday I noticed a copy of My Sunny Vampire sold on Amazon (I follow the sales on novelrank.com). So of course I mentioned it on Facebook (I was happy!). On Sunday I went to see that #1 again (yeah, I'm a sap) and found it had become a 2. I sold another! Made for a super weekend.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, before the first sale, the ranking of MSV (on Amazon) was over the 1 million mark. That first sale brought it up to around 300,000 and that second sale around 130,000. Doesn’t take much, does it?
Have a great last day of June!
