Today, I share some good news: I had a PET scan on Wednesday and then we saw my oncologist. And no signs of malignancy. I’ll see him again in three months but as I’m now two years out of transplant, no more scheduled scans 🙂

I also talk about using Netgalley as an indie author: what my goals are in terms of reviews and reaching more readers and why I decided to put #TheLeftoverBride on Netgalley.

As a self-published author, I use Victory Editing co-op (for one title and one month) and have already received hundreds of request for review.

Also mentioned in this episode: TikTok, Instagram as an author and not knowing why some videos take off as well as IN DIESEM EINEN SOMMER (A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER in German) getting hundreds (now probably at least a thousand) free downloads without me doing anything (I’m not sure why either). 

Don’t hesitate to ask me a question per email or record a question…

Trying out a new book review strategy and SO MANY emotions about the release of #SweetsForLove A self-published author's diary

Today, I share with you my new (to me) strategy to get advance book reviews, using TikTok, Instagram (and relying on my newsletter which I've always done) and contacting readers from Netgalley who have reviewed a previous book in the series and who mentioned they'd be interested in contacting with me. The first #SweetsForLove reviews are raving! 🙂 Oh and you can get your own copy here: https://books2read.com/u/3Gwzpa In addition, I have created a #SweetsForLove Bingo 🙂 (bit.ly/SweetsForLoveBingo) and I have a #SweetsForLove Team (Facebook group and discord channel). And I'm also explaining why this release week is *very* emotional (in a lot of ways). I'm pretty calm about the release itself but knowing my book touches readers and makes them smile is … an amazing feeling. And I may be slightly reflective right now.
