Gonna see what this whole ‘Twitter’ thing is all about. Follow for…I don’t even know what.
Hey guys! When it comes to self-publishing, existing reviews are crucial to gaining more exposure. How many reviews a book has on Amazon is one of the main things that makes a new reader more inclined to buy the book.
I know, it’s kind of a chicken/egg debacle. If a book has reviews then people have read it, but they won’t read it if it doesn’t have reviews? It’s just one of those mysteries.
To help my book, Veridia, get off the ground, I’m making an offer public that used to be semi-private: Get the book for free, leave a review on Amazon. It’s that simple! This arrangement is ideally for those who can’t afford to purchase the book (I am, ironically, one of those people, hence why I made the deal in the first place), and that sentiment still applies. I’m just making the offer more well known and open to everyone without them having to ask.
If you’re interested, drop me a message with your email and I’ll send the book as an attachment the second I get it.
This is a deal for honest reviews. You are in no way obligated to leave a positive review no matter what you think of the book, and I would never try to ‘buy’ reviews from you guys.
Every review is vital at this stage, please help or reblog if you can!
VERIDIA by BRITTANY DIAMOND
Leyna Alpern, an ivy league student suffering from hallucinations and chronic depression, is dragged into an impossible realm by an entity who wants to consume her soul. With the help of living representations of her survival instinct, a good friend she screwed over in the past, and others, she may be able to survive the insanity of Veridia and take down its creator. Maybe.

I haven’t watched it recently, to the point where I had completely forgotten all of this djskldjklf
I’m totally watching the Obsession episode for the next Commentary
Ah yes! That was probably me. Chess was used as a form of flirting/courtship in Shakespeare’s The Tempest, and I’m sure Shakes used it in other works too, I just can’t name them off the top of my head. It was a fairly common trope of his day so other dudes used it too. (But none of them directly influenced Roddenberry like Shakespeare.)
