That was the week, that was (well, two weeks, actually).

You know the feeling when you decide to do something and you’ve no idea how to do it and it’s probably crazy anyway?





Well, that was my position two weeks ago. I’d entered the newly released Fortitude into the Kindle Storyteller Award in the full knowledge that what I needed was ‘reader engagement’ on Amazon, but not a clue how to achieve it. (Not having a zillion followers on FB or Twitter or a...

Sara Hi Margaret!
Just wanted to let you know I got your book off Amazon and look forward to reading it!


Margaret Skea I think my best thing to hope for is some better reviews to knock it down the list so that it isn't so visible. We'll see what today brings.


Margaret Skea Right, Linda, thanks - I don't know if this person is on Goodreads - I guess I could search for them. I'll try.


message 1: by Linda

Linda Margaret, Hope you get this because I took a wrong turn some place. I hate what happened? Can you contacts the person? I have inadvertently put a star on a book I have on the TBR list and had the author ormember contact me. Sometimes rating on CP,ebook,etc., gets done by mistake and it is the devil to change! If that could have happened to you, contact one of the moderators and ask for help. Tell me if there is anything I can do. You were doing so well and the book was one good read! LINDA
