I am the author of the Henry Wood Detective series. The first book is available on Kindle, Nook, and in Print. Book two is in the editing phase, book 3 is waiting patiently, and book for is being written with reckless abandon.
@tomstronach Yes, yes it does!

@lizreusswig @ExtremelyAvgThis may be a gender thing, but how do you feel about Animal House, Caddy Shack, and Ghost Busters?

@Tinu I'm glad I got a chuckle on the unicorn bit. :-)
@lizreusswig @ExtremelyAvg I often give points to comments I like, usually two. I've once given three points, but never four...until now! Anyone who busts out a Princess Bride reference gets 4 points!!!Annie really was quite a gal. :-)
@LSSocialEngage @jasonkonopinski@ExtremelyAvgThanks LS, I truly appreciate it.
@biggreenpen @ExtremelyAvgThe unicorn reference was just a happy coincidence.I'm sorry you're having such bad luck with the retailer.Thanks, there have been 21 sales today, so that's encouraging. (and the day's not done yet)
@RobBiesenbach I don't like them either, but it was the only option they gave me and I really wanted to find out more.Given a choice, I'd rather just send a human an email. Of course, I doubt that it would have mattered with this group since they seemed disinterested in making a case for their company.
@susancellura @ExtremelyAvgWell, then I better stop goofing off.
@susancellura I hope to get book 4 out in the next six week. I've gotten it back from my editor, just need the cover art and a few small details. Have you already read the 1st three books?
@jasonkonopinski I know. I guess they already have enough business.
@lizreusswig Guinea pigs rock! I'm also a fan of the Capybara. Do you know what a Capybara is? If not, do a Google search under images and prepare to squeal at the cuteness!I'm not related to Randy Newman, as far as I know. I am, however, related to Annie Oakley on my mother's side. That's sort of cool.
@ginidietrich @ExtremelyAvgIt's not easy, but once you've made the NY Times list, you can "New York Times Bestselling Author" on everything for the rest of your life.There is value in THAT!

@ginidietrich @ExtremelyAvgCool, then that solves the problem.
I do have a question about the timing of posting the reviews on Amazon. If a person posts the review on the 9th, the day before they buy it, I doubt the review will show up as an "Amazon Verified Purchase", while if we post it on the 10th, after we buy our copy, it would.There is value in the "Amazon Verified Purchase" note.
I've signed up, too.
It will be fun to watch the rankings during Crush Week!
@Ari HerzogYou will be pleased to know that Indie Bookstore numbers have been on the rise for years.http://www.the-digital-reader.com/2013/09/23/amazon-slayed-negative-77-indie-bookstores-2012/#.UwFTU7RnizoBorders did go broke and they no longer exist, though.

@conb1977 It's nice to know you're looking out for me. :-)

@conb1977 I'm literally emailing back and forth with a guy I'm hiring to make some changes to my site, including fixing that email viagra thing that shows up. It's annoying and I've not been able to figure it out on my own. Sometimes it's easier just to hire someone who knows about such things.
@tomstronach Indie authors, especially the ones making really good money, all seem to remember they got help when they were new and only had a hand full of reviews.
I know that the help I've received has left an impression on me and I'm always happy to share what I've learned.It's a friendly community.
@KDillabough Also, Danny Brown recommend a plugin that I've not gotten yet.
