Where to buy ‘Mental’; the importance of positive reviews


‘Mental’ has been out for over a month now. So far, the reception has been very positive and sales have been good. I even got my first royalties! (Miniscule, but still.)

Here’s where you can buy the book online:

As for bricks and mortar, the book is on sale in The Book Centre, Waterford, and will be in stock as of next week in The Book Centre shops in Wexford and Kilkenny, and Barker and Jones in Naas (all in Ireland – I’m working my way towards book stores abroad.)

If you have read the book and enjoyed it, I would be delighted if you would post a review of it on Amazon. Your review can be as short as you like – one sentence is perfectly acceptable.

There are already some lovely reviews, like this one:

Have a look at the full list of reviews so far and do consider writing one yourself. The book needs to reach ten reviews in order to qualify for inclusion in Amazon’s “Also bought” listings, as well as the “You might like” recommendations. Being included in these promotions gains the book more exposure and, hopefully, more sales.

Positive Amazon reviews are valuable to writers also because they help the book move higher up in Amazon’s rankings. And this creates – yes you guessed it – more exposure and more sales.
