    My first review on Amazon!

    I self-published my first novel on Createspace last month, and it is currently on sale on Amazon.

    Woke up on Sunday to find my first ever review, so happy!
    Here it is.

    Yay! It's good to know that someone actually read it, isn't it? For me, that is the reason why I like seeing reviews. I don't even really care if the review is bad because even if it is it means someone out there has bought and read the book...

    Yes, and to think that person went to the effort to write something about it, just feels great.

    Thanks for comments

    grats now all you need to do is see how many people they can talk into buying the book next. my hope is when i finally get to the print the book phase i can have my kids on FB tell everyone to go and get the book.

    congratulations!

    great review, I hope it will be the first of many!

    may I ask how you decided what price to charge for the book?

    Hi,

    I can't place the article at the moment, but a very informative one I read suggested 0.99 for 20k words, 1.99 for 30k words....5.99 for 70k words. My novel is 73k words, so went with 5.99.

    As I am not actively marketing my online sales, (I want to publish a few more short stories and another novel before spending time and money marketing my writing online) I will look into different pricing strategies in the future.

    Thanks for the comments.
