I almost wrote “let-me-down freeloaders.”
Is it too much to ask or nudge people I’ve known to have downloaded my e-book “Ready or Not” to at least rate it?
I am new at this, obviously, so perhaps I ask a naive question. I am fairly certain that most haven’t even gotten around to reading it yet, let alone finishing it. (And how can that be urged? I think it is impossible without loss of tact.) We writers wish anyone with our work is breaking his or her neck to read and savor our material–hardly a truth.
Here and there at work I’ve mentioned this to those who acknowledged taking advantage of the free download (lightly but sincerely). Yet naught happens.
Do I post to my Facebook page and reiterate what must be obvious? Perhaps I am too polite.
Or perhaps a more ominous question needs to be addressed: is the book actually not very good?
