Happy Friday everyone! I know we’re all still a little hung over from the holidays, but I wanted to send out a request for early readers. My debut novel, The Quest for the Holy Something or Other, is being released on January 30th! About a month away! As this is my first novel, and I’ve learned that honest reviews are extremely important in helping a book succeed, I’d really like to have some reviews posted during the first week of February. Interested in helping me out?
Obviously, this is a win-win for both of us. If you’re serious about reading the book and posting an honest review, you get a free advanced review copy of the book. All I ask is that you try to read the entire book, not just the first chapter or so, and leave a review within a week of the release date.
And I ask that you be honest. I know many of you are my friends, but I don’t expect you–nay, want you to falsify a 5 star review. If my writing sucks, so be it . . . though I doubt you’ll think it does;) Please be objective in your review. Any praise for the novel is welcome, of course, and anything you didn’t like should be noted as well. Reviews are for the readers, not the author, so just tell them what you think. It’ll only help me in the long run.
Some word of caution before you agree to help me: This is an Arthurian parody, meaning it pokes fun at King Arthur and his realm. Book contains original characters and is littered with modern references. It’s not historically accurate, nor does it try to be. There is some mild language sprinkled here and there and a few sexual references, but otherwise it’s mostly clean. The novel is geared toward 16-35 year old men or women who love comedy and medieval stuff. If you like Monty Python, Game of Thrones, LOTR, Gerald Morris, and Terry Pratchett, you’ll probably enjoy this book.
Still interested? Send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the words “Advanced Review Copy” in the regarding lines. In advance, I thank you for your support!
