Actually, it was really 7 steps. The 8th is something I really hope you'll do for me once you've read the books! 🙂
8. Please post an honest review on Kobo of my books once you've read them!
Reader reviews are so important for me as it helps new readers decide whether or not to read my books! I'm really grateful for every honest review I get.
When you post a review please email me and let me know you posted it. You can email me on the email that I sent the links to your free books from.
Also, do let me know if you'd like to be part of my First-Reader team. You'll get special access to my books before they're released and get to give me your feedback on them and contribute to them being better books!
Thanks in advance 🙂
Hope you enjoy reading your free books!
