Today is my “What are we reading” feature, and I’m not allowed to tell you! LOL
Why the cloak and dagger? Because I’m reading 7 books and scoring them for the Romance Writers of America RITA contest. It’s like the Oscars of romance…
So I can’t share the names or I’d get my hand slapped.
But I thought I would ask all of you readers out there… How much to Contest Wins affect your decision to buy a book? When you see an award under the book’s listing, does that make you more likely to take a chance on a new author?
My novel, Night Walker, won a San Diego Book award for Best Published scifi-fantasy-horror of 2012, and my goodreads ads for that book are always the most clicked. And even though it came out almost 3 years ago, it’s also usually in my top 3 books in my Amazon rankings too.
Is it the contest win, the hot cover, or???
So as I judge these RITA entries, if one of them wins and you see “RITA Award Winner for Best Romantic Suspense” would that make you more likely to click the BUY button?
Curious writers would love to know! LOL
