It is short, and Sandra thinks it is one of the best things I have written.

A study last year revealed over 88% of online shoppers trust reviews as much as personal recommendations.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE ROGER EBERT
All you have to write are 20 words.
"I really enjoyed the humor in this book. The dialogue crackles with wit. Mark Twain really became alive for me in this story. And I admit, I cried at the end."
WHERE NUMBERS COUNT
Around 20-25 reviews, Amazon starts including the book in “also bought” and “you might like” lists. This increases your chances of someone finding your title.
Around 50-70 reviews, Amazon looks at your book for spotlight positions and the newsletter. This is HUGE. (Almost as big as Trump's ego!)
SNOWBALLS IN AUGUST
One positive review begets another. They start to stimulate interest. Over 85% of all Kindle readers rely on reviews in their online shopping decisions.
NO PASSPORTS NECESSARY
You can post a review on Amazon without verification of purchase.
WHY SHOULD YOU READ DRAGONS OF THE BARBARY COAST?

First Love changes you and sets up its own room in your heart and mind.
There's no love like the first.
You can love someone ... but never as much as you can miss them.
