Fake Reviews

Checked amazon.com to see how sales of The Good Fairies of New York are doing in America. Still seems to be going OK. Glanced at the customer reviews, seems to be doing fine with them too, which saves me the trouble of faking any. I’m not above faking the occasional customer review on Amazon, to boost sales.

I am untroubled by bad reviews, in the press or by customers, but I figure faking a few good reviews on Amazon is a legitimate way of promoting your own books. Well, legitimate in the sense of lying and cheating. Still, I’ve not been obliged to do this in this case.

My agreement with the distributors was that The Good Fairies was meant to be re-released in Britain in March. Now it seems to be April. I don’t know why that is, and I can‘t be bothered to find out. It will arrive soon anyway.

So. April, The Good Fairies of New York arrives back in Britain. June, Lonely Werewolf Girl comes out. Around September I should once more be an international star of literature, invited to Hollywood to write movies and party with glamorous starlets. Yes, things seem to be moving in the right direction.

  1. I always buy books in bookshops, I love the smell of paper, but I could always pop over to Amazon to write a review if you need another :) Even though you're an Arsenal fan...

  2. I was just directed to your site by a yahoo 360 friend. I live in the states and recently read Good Faeries which I had to buy on Amazon. I like scholiast would rather buy from a store or better yet find something at a library but Amazon seems to be the only place in the states to find your books. I did leave a nice review as I think it might help publisheres release more of your books here. Right now they are harder to find and more expensive than gold. That's not to say they aren't worth it.
