“The Chevor Cat” was the original scene in Traitor’s Blade that takes place when Falcio is first reminiscing about life shortly after the Greatcoats were disbanded.

They give the book its best chance at becoming a bestseller because all pre-orders are counted as being part of the first week’s sales.

Pre-orders tell authors that they have genuine fans–people who are looking forward to their next book. There’s no better motivation to get your favourite authors to keep writing!

Potential buyers look at reviews to decide if this book is for them. Being specific about what you enjoy gives them confidence that the book is worth reading.
