Ways To Help That Cost You Nothing!

As you probably know, being an author isn’t just my dream, but also my salvation.  I have severe disabilities, and it’s the one way that I can ever set myself free.  Of course, that means I need all the help I can get, so here are some ways that you can help me that cost you nothing.  Some of them even mean that you get free stuff in return.  That’s always good, right?

Leave A Review

It’s human nature to only review something if you hated it, but good reviews are critical to the success of my books.  If you enjoyed any of my stories, please consider leaving a review.  Please, please, please, please, pretty please with sugar and whipped cream on top.  It doesn’t have to be long or detailed.  Even just a simple star rating helps other people find my book, which in turn leads to sales for me.

Read For Review

Got some time on your hands and want to help me out?  I’m always looking for dedicated reviewers to read my books and review them for me.  The deal is that I’ll send you a free book, and in return you leave me a review once you’ve read it.  There are a few simple terms and conditions, of course:  you need to leave the review within 2-4 weeks, and it needs to be honest.  The time limit is in place because some people take advantage of the free book and never fulfil their end of the bargain, so I need to be careful.  If you need an extension, all you have to do is ask.

I am happy to let you out of the contract if you genuinely don’t like the book and would feel bad leaving a negative review, but I do request that you email me feedback so that I can learn and grow as a writer.

If you would like to read for review, please send me an email at info@vldreyer.com.

Word Of Mouth

This one is obvious!  If you loved one of my books, tell someone.  Tell your friends, tell your family, post about it on Facebook or Twitter.  Every person you tell is a potential customer for me.

Book Stores, Libraries, & Schools

Book stores will only ever order in a product if they perceive that there’s a market for it.  The easiest way for them to figure out that there’s a market for my books is for you to quite literally tell them about it.  They may decide against stocking them, but who knows?  Maybe they will!

Like book stores, libraries and schools order stock if there’s a perceived market for it, but because of their nature they’re much more likely to invest in my product.  Simply asking your local library to stock my books is often enough for them to do so, which means both money and exposure for me.  Libraries are fantastic publicity for me!

In order for stores, libraries, & schools to locate my books, they’ll need my ISBN numbers.  These are as follows:

The Survivors Book I: Summer
The Survivors Book II: Autumn
The Survivors Book III: Winter
The Survivors Book IV: Spring
The Immortality Clause
978-0-473-25627-2
978-0-473-26853-4

Conventions

I love attending conventions and other fun events like that, but my finances are rather limited.  So, if you’d love to have me come to ComicCon or whatever expo is happening near you, contact the owners and suggest they invite me as a guest.  Most of the big-name conventions have a publicity budget for overseas guests – again, if they know that there’s interest.  Make your interest known, and maybe we’ll have the chance to hang out in London or Berlin or New York some day!
