This entrepreneur stuff is a lot of work. I get the online marketing and whatnot, too, with as many doors to the store as can be found, but yikes does that make for a confused mind.
The writing here is going to focus more and more on reviews of what the page and the business is really about: Books guys will read.
Got an easy one this week even if it's a blind one: Monmouth Court House: The Battle that Made the American Army. Recommending it blind is not a problem because Joe Bilby, the coauthor, is a name already known to anyone interested in military history. It's brand new this week.
So is Swain's Folly , at least on Amazon. I wrote this one a couple of years ago. It's a murder mystery set on the Jersey Shore. Some might say it's also a journey of self-discovery for the protagonist, Tom Swain, who returns home after years away and finds all the old demons waiting for him. I wouldn't say that, though, because who'd read about a guy contemplating his navel, even with explosions and cool science stuff? Some might call it a romance, but I'd have to be an idiot to call it that and expect a guy to read it. Even if Tom Swain manned up and kept it all inside for years, I'd still hesitate to use the word romance. Young people might enjoy it, since the "second lead" in the story is a teenage girl and most of the story revolves around high school. But I'm just sticking to the first thought: A guy will read this book, especially if he finds himself on the beach with his family this summer wondering what his life might have been like without the woman beside him with the sun blocker and cold sodas. Janitor or rock star? Neither?
It's available on Kindle, too. Either way it's priced at less than a meal at McDonald's, and what you keep with you after this book is a lot better for you than cholesterol.
Coming next: Think a sign on the side of my van will drive business?
