Since I’ve been really exploring a lot of advertising online, I’ve been thinking a lot about who even looks at these random sites looking for books and what exactly they might be looking for. I haven’t gotten any return from them yet that I know of, so there’s something that’s missing. I know it’s not the cover; that cover is catchy as fuck, thanks to my brilliant cover artist Ingrid. It’s not a bad title, and I guess the description can be a little cheesy, but, hey, it’s actually a pretty cheesy book.
I ask myself: Would I choose Soulless out of a line-up of a lot of other books? I like to think I would. The cover would catch me, as, let’s face it, we always judge a book by its cover, and the story would intrigue me enough to justify it. The Kindle price point ain’t bad, either, though I would probably hesitate on the print version price.
I ask myself: Would other people choose Soulless out of a line-up of a lot of other books?
That’s a question I can’t really answer for myself, because, as cool as it would be to do it, I can’t get inside my reader’s head. I can ask for you to tell me what’s inside your head, though. So, tell me, dear readers, what makes you decide “I want to buy this book”? Do you often buy books from promotional sites like GoodKindles or Wall of Books? If so, how do you decide among so many? Are you more likely to try a book from these sites, or do personal blogs (like Therin Knite’s book spotlight) have much more influence?
I’d love some insite on this, anything you’d like to share at all!
