    Okay guys, while I know this isn?t exactly the place to promote or try and sell a romance \ suspense eBook, I?m here seeking advice on how to do so in a strategic way. Suffice it to say, there?s no shortage of information out there on how to do so. However at one point it all becomes overwhelming, and it can be difficult on deciding where to start.

    So if I sound like a rookie that?s because I am! Now with that said, one of the biggest ways to raise your book?s profile is with reviews. As my eBook is now up on Amazon and other major online sellers (published through BookBaby), I?m now in review mode trying to gain as much exposure through that as possible.

    That generally includes offering the book free to anyone willing to read it, and HOPE they review the book on Amazon, et al. So I suppose my first question \ curiosity is with all the strategies and techniques used on BHW, do any apply to gaining reviews for a novel? Or how about more broadly speaking, with trying to sell an eBook and make money and gain a fan-base, do the methods here apply?

    Either way, with all the techniques and tools around these parts, I figure it can?t hurt to run this by y?all and see if you have any thoughts? My thanks in advance!
