A Confusing Christmas

How confusing is Christmas Day falling on a week day! It should be a weekend. Have just had lunch with friends and one of our group has invited the rest of us for drinks on Christmas Eve, we all parted saying ‘See you on Friday!’

Promoting a new ebook

It is easy to promote your ebook for free, there are so many sites on which to do so, but not so easy to promote a new book. I have found a few sites, but many of them will only promote a book if it has a minimum of 5 reviews. One site wanted 25 reviews before it would consider promoting. Now, unless you pressurise all your mates to review your book as soon as it is launched, which I don’t consider ethical; how are you going to get reviews without promoting? A chicken and egg situation. Any suggestions?
