Bad Way Out got its first one-star review today on Amazon, and I’m still alive. It just wasn’t this particular reader’s type of book, and given her review history (yes, I checked it out), I suspect she decided to read it based on my cover. I get the idea she assumed it was erotica romance. It ain’t that. As a test, I’m reverting back to my original cover to see if it effects sales. Speaking of sales, they are way, way, way down. Between the Kindle lending program and sales, I received payment on just 15 units so far this month. As you can see, playing around with the cover isn’t going to make a big difference in sales numbers.
To the reviewer who gave me the one-star review, read long and prosper.
