It’s no secret that disappointment and discouragement are constant and close companions of the writer.
One of my greatest discouragements has been receiving so few reviews in relation to how many copies of The Visitor have been downloaded. I’ve worked tirelessly trying to get reviews for my time travel tale, including offering numerous free download days. The results? The Visitor has been downloaded hundreds of times over the past year but has only received 42 reviews.
The most recent example was this past Saturday when The Visitor was available all day for free. 229 copies were downloaded, yet to date, I’ve only received one new review.
I am truly grateful for each and every one of the reviews I’ve received over the past year, I’ve just found that it’s taken an inordinate amount of time to obtain that many reviews . . . time that could have been spent writing.

Thank you to all those who helped propel The Visitor to those coveted spots on Amazon’s ranking.
