As I’ve been gearing up for the marketing push in support of the audiobook version of The Gardens, Witches of Tuscany Book 1, I’ve repeatedly heard that customer reviews at Amazon and Audible are the single most important factor in a book’s success. For this reason, the experts all stress that authors (even the shy ones) get up the gumption to ask friends and fans alike to please take 5 minutes to post a customer review at either or both sites.

Reviews do not need to be long. They do NOT need to be 5-star reviews. But they do help in incalcuable ways. If you have read or listened to The Gardens and enjoyed the experience enough to tell me, kindly also post a review.
