Plus it also comes with a lovely review. Thank you reader Interrobanged!

“Viola Craft’s marriage is one of duty and heartache, and desperately trying to please her older husband, Vernon. Despite all of her efforts, however, he still wants the one thing that she cannot–and will not–give him. This book is the slow-motion tumble of lives under siege. At times, Her Sweetest Downfall was challenging to read. Not because of any problems with the writing; much the contrary. The difficulties between the protagonist and her husband are well-rendered, and her indecision about what to do with her life in the face of societal constraints is painful and frustrating.

Readers will find themselves hoping Viola and those around her make the right choices and may feel a little heartbreak themselves. I guarantee there will be two points in the book that make readers stop and re-read, thinking that events couldn’t have turned out that way. These lost opportunities add a sad realism of the book, however. That said, without giving too many spoilers, the book comes to a satisfying, if unexpected, conclusion. Readers will find Her Sweetest Downfall a poignant read, at times a little frightening, but in the end, Viola’s downfall may also be her salvation.”

How and Why People Buy Books

I came across this great infographic from Author Marketing Club about how and why readers buy books. I was surprised by the data.

Are you upset you haven’t reached ‘best seller’ status yet? Don’t worry. According to this data, 72% of readers aren’t swayed to buy if you have ‘best seller’ on the cover. Phew!

Worried you’re not with one of the big 6? 36% of those surveyed paid no attention who the book was published by.

It really put things into perspective. I felt incompetent to other authors who were plastered all over book store shelves. In my mind, they were better than me. It really goes to show the reader runs the show.
