Self-publishing a book sounds like a great idea, until you realize that you're not the first one to have that idea. There are thousands upon thousands of self-published authors, all struggling to get noticed. Most of them never find an audience for their books.
The struggle is real. This is David vs Goliath. The big book publishing houses have million dollar advertising budgets. Self-published authors don't. That's why their books get big press and ours don't. We have no chance against them unless we work together. If we all help promote each other, our voices will be heard and our books will be seen. United we stand, divided we fall. (Where have I heard that before?)
That's why I ask you to pledge your support for all your fellow writers on the Bookmaester Top 100 Indie Book Charts. (4 out of 5 dentists recommend it. And the 5th one is a selfish prick.) Show them some love. Download their books. Review them. No, really. Do it. As you know, reviews are the life blood of the self-publishing world. Without reviews we are invisible. We might as well not even exist.
If you can't read and review all of the books on the Bookmaester Top 100 list, then please at least post a review for the Top 10. Be a good kid and make your papa proud.
And if even that is too much to ask (Shame on you. Wait until your mother hears.) then promise me you will at the very least download and review (do it!) the #1 book on the list each Sunday, before the clock strikes twelve. Swear it, by the old gods and the new.
What's in it for you? Well, you could add your book to the Top 100, and get free reviews for your book, too! How do you like them apples?
