Reviews for The Colonists

The fourth book in the Skidian Chronicles series; The Colonists is being edited at the moment, so in the lull between getting something back to work on (I’m sure there will be heaps) and starting the the next project I have been plotting a marketing strategy while I enjoy the end of the summer weather with a few beers. I would have been watching one day cricket on television this afternoon, but it looks like New Zealand is  getting a thrashing in the deciding match of the series, so I’m giving that a miss.

So what have I done? I have dropped the price of the current Kindle books on Amazon, started running a few adds on Facebook, a format which has been effective in the past, and have been looking at some innovative advertising options to help me stand out from the crowd. More on that at a later date.

Gazing into the bottom of my beer bottle, while I wonder if I should run down stairs for another one, I have been creatively penning  the kind of reviews I think I deserve for The Colonists. These reviews will propel me into that list of must read authors and assure me of a bright future. Maybe even get me to that elusive three thousand sales target. What do you reckon?

Here’s a sample……..

Fun, funny, pacy, thought-provoking and very clever space opera – a breath of fresh air.”
– A famous author

“If there is any justice at all in this universe, Keith Fenwick will someday be as wealthy and famous as Bill Gates.”
– Joyce Fenwick (Keith’s wife)

“I’d thoroughly recommend this book.”

“A gifted and imaginative author.”

“This book would be nothing without my wonderful and compelling character at its centrepiece.”
–President for Life Ronald D Chump

“Through his wit, dialogue, and vast, diverse worlds, Keith Fenwick has created a space opera for today–one filled with diverse characters and cultures that feel nuanced enough to be real–while still delivering the sense of wonder that made you love the genre in the first place. It yanks readers through the wormhole and refuses to let them go. When’s the next book in the series out?”
