Kobo Reviews Needed For CONVERGENCE

As some of you may know, Kobo is now taking customer reviews. You may have noticed this, either on this blog, or on Kobo Writing Life, when news broke back in May, or came upon the news in their latest newsletter. I, for one, think it's a tremendous decision and I know first-hand as a reader how valuable customer reviews are. They help facilitate purchase decisions and can make or break those on-the-fence customers into clicking the buy button. As an author, I value reviews because it could (hopefully) draw in more new readers.

Kobo didn't think it was enough to just open the doors to customer reviews, though. Nope, they are sweetening the deal a bit further. Write a review and get 20% off select eBooks! How cool is that?!

Now, you don't have to review Convergence, obviously. But, it sure would be appreciated! And I certainly hope you will. I know there's a good number of Kobo readers out there who have bought and read my book, and if you're one of them, please consider this offer and know that you've got absolutely nothing to lose. In face, you'll get a lovely little reward out of this! A bit of quid pro quo, eh? I've currently got 8 reviews on Amazon, all 5-stars, and I think it's high-time my Kobo readers start getting in on the act!

All you have to do to review Convergence is follow this link (you'll be taken to Kobo's partner site, Evocalize), click the big blue RATE THIS button, and then rate and write a brief review. After that, you'll get a coupon for 20% off a select eBook that's valid until October 4.

If you leave a review, drop a line here and let us know!

(And, if you haven't bought Convergence already, you can do so at the link above.)
