A couple of weeks ago I got followed on Twitter by a book review site. And as often happens, when I followed them back, I got an almost immediate DM from their bot.
They asked if I’d be interested in having my books reviewed by their “network of 45,000 readers”.
“Sure,” I said. “Sounds good.”
The following day I saw a spike in hits to my website. It happened to be the day that the first draft chapter of “A Wounded Heart” to my Patreon and behind the Patreon wall on my website, so I figured that would be the reason.
But that page was way down on the list of the most accessed pages on that day. Way down the list.
Then, towards the end of the day, I got this message.
Really? 45,000 readers and none of them like a bit of smut? 45,000 readers and none of them are interested in a bit of romance mixed with some hot and steamy B.O.B. beaking sex?
Well, never mind. I checked out your website the same way you checked out mine, and I had no intention of paying a bloody fortune to give away free copies for people to read and review.
