Champion Your Favourite Books!

Here's the simple truth: your favourite books and authors need champions. Without readers and bloggers who care about those books, they simply disappear, fading out after a week or two on the bookstore shelf. Want to champion the Greatcoats or Spellslinger? here's how:

The Chevor Cat

“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. When I was finalizing the book, it felt as if it might be too laid back – not “actiony” enough to fit that moment in the book. However I’ve always had a fondness for this scene – specifically how it reveals how easily the Greatcoats went from being legendary heroes to reviled traitors.

The Eight Duellists

One of the things people ask me most often about Saint’s Blood are the types of duellists. Here then is a list of all seven, and one not mentioned in the book.

The Tyrant’s Notebook

The fourth book of the Greatcoats quartet had more deleted scenes than any of my other books. Each had merits, some were crushingly hard to leave out of the novel, but all had to go in the interests of keeping the story’s edge as sharp as possible.

1. Pre-order the books

Why are pre-orders so helpful to authors?
01 - Bestseller Lists

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.

03 - Publisher Focus

Publishers see pre-orders as indicators that the author’s work matters to their readers and encourages them to put more into marketing the book.

02 - Bookstore Orders

Pre-orders help bookstores see that readers like the author’s work and give them a reason to order more than just a single copy.

04 - Author Encouragement

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!

2. Write a quick review

Reviews help your favourite books get noticed
01 - discoverability

Platforms like Amazon, Kobo and others rely on reader reviews to determine which books to show people looking for books.

02 - Readers love them

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.

03 - How many stars?

That’s up to you, but it's worth noting that if the book’s average is higher than 4 stars, then rating it 4 stars or less brings the average down.

To Review Sebastien's Books

The best place to review a book is on the site where you bought it, or on Goodreads where lots of readers go to find new books. Below are links to my books on a number of sites.
