Ten Little Astronauts' Three Month Anniversary
Ten Little Astronauts was released three months ago today!
The book has got off to a great start, even turning up in Waterstones Portsmouth right by The Hobbit! That's more to do with the alphabetical proximity of "Wakes" to "Tolkien" than any statement of quality by the bookshop, but I'll take what I can get.
It's also doing very well online, with mostly four- or five-star ratings on Goodreads and exclusively four- and five-star ratings on Amazon UK and Amazon US. I put the difference down to readers being unable to review the book on Amazon while it was being serialised by The Pigeonhole prior to release: it's got four times as many ratings on Goodreads, so naturally the average is a little lower.
If you've read the book but not yet reviewed it, please do consider popping over to Amazon, Goodreads, or anywhere else you'd typically go looking for books. This is how new readers will find it. There are 260 people out there who pledged to make Ten Little Astronauts a reality - if even half of you review it, its ratings will be well into triple figures! You don't have to write screeds either: just a star rating and (if required) a few words of your honest opinion. That's all it takes to help boost the book's visibility, and I'd really like to know what you think!
