My debut novel is out now.

My debut novel is out now.

I've been planning to publish a novel for 40 years. Today is the day. 🥳

The e-book and hardcover are now available on Amazon

Unfortunately, it is against Amazon's policy to offer book reviewers a free gift. 🤷🏻‍♂️ That's why I can NOT give you the following goodies in exchange for honest reviews:

  • A personally signed bookplate sticker that you can put in the front of your hardcover copy.
  • A sticker to give your hardcover a unique number assigned by me, which makes it extra exclusive.
  • An official "sorry, wrong page" bookmark to put in your book (or any other book).
  • An official "something went wrong" postcard that you can send to someone else (or to yourself).

How NOT to receive this lovely gift:

  1. Write a fair review on two websites (for example, GoodReads and LinkedIn).
  2. Send me an email with a link to your reviews.
  3. Give me your address so I can send you the goodies.

Nothing in life is guaranteed (except something going wrong). Considering Amazon's strict book review policy, I cannot check if you wrote a review on Amazon (though it would be awesome if you did). And I will randomly pick people to send these exclusive items to.

This is, of course, not a reward for an Amazon review.
