Readers and Reviews!
By now most of you will have noticed that my book has come out. Yes, it actually happened! The publication date was brought forward at the last minute so the book would be available during the blog tour - more on that later. Thanks again for helping to make it happen, I’m waiting here in suspense to find out what you think of it!
If you enjoy reading Blind Side... it would be TOTALLY BRILLIANT if you could leave a rating and a review, however short, on Amazon - or perhaps on GoodReads if you’re a member. This will help make the book more visible to potential buyers - and help it to zoom up the rankings! Note: At time of writing it’s already hitting the top 500 within its category on Amazon.
To review on Amazon, sign in and either search for ‘Blind Side’ or paste in the direct link geni.us/bldsd (this automatically lists book in your country’s Amazon).
Also, of course, feel free to share your enjoyment with anyone you know who hasn’t read the book - and might be keen to buy a copy!
All who pledged should have had an email from Unbound saying Blind Side ebook is now available to download with a link to download your e-book. If you haven’t, if you are logged into your Unbound account you can download the ebook from here.

Blog tour highlights
Back to the blog tour. Last week the Blind Side blog tour passed through the book blogging world without derailing and left in its wake one immensely happy but weary author. (Too many nights up at 2am trying to finish my guest posts.)
