Releasing a book this summer, of this year, has not been the most fun.
I mean, let’s be honest: this year has not been the most fun.
So moments like this — seeing my book on a shelf at one of my favorite shops, Mind’s Eye Comics — are little bubbles of joy.
It reminds me that my work is real.
As I navigate how to share that work at a time like this, there is a way you can help, for free: write a review.
Specifically, writing a review on a site like Amazon can vastly improve its chances to be found in a heavily saturated market. Think of my book as Waldo; your review is a helpful pointer finger.
It can be really simple: click on some stars (the more, the better) and add a one-sentence description. It can also be deep; the reviews that have been posted already are so insightful and very thoughtful.
It doesn’t seem like a lot, but it’s one of the ways us small, independent creators can find the people who will connect to what we do.
And connection, right now, feels like the most important thing in the universe.
