Acts-of-Caine-covers-lineThe Acts of Caine will be released in a couple of weeks, and author Matthew Stover has a request to make of his fans.

Okay, here we go.

The Acts of Caine will be released to the entire English-speaking world in a couple of weeks. Now I’m going to ask a favor of you. Of all of you.

Post reader reviews. At Amazon.com, Amason.co.uk (when they’ll let you), and at B&N, Powell’s and every bookselling site you can access. If you’re reading this, I’m guessing that your review will be four or five stars (though I’m okay with honesty; if you think they’re worth less, post a shitty review. I forgive you in advance. So does Caine). What I want is numbers. What Caine needs is numbers.

Around 600 people like this page, but HEROES DIE has only 69 reviews on Amazon.com. Does that make sense to you? I have almost 500 friends on Facebook, but only 115 of them have liked this page. Does that make sense to you? It doesn’t really make sense to me.

If you care, throw Caine a bone. Like this page. Write a review. Encourage your like-minded friends to do the same.

When you come down to it, publishing is a numbers game. Numbers count. If you want to help, post. If you don’t want to help . . . well, that’s your business. I don’t mind; Caine’s not for everyone.

But if you love him (or even, y’know, like him enough that you want to see more), don’t just tell your friends. Tell the whole world. Amazon, Powell’s, Goodreads . . . you pick. Go for it. Don’t be shy.

You can help make this happen. More books, maybe (if the gods permit) features, TV shows and electronic games and who the hell knows what else.

I’m not asking for money. I’m asking for some words, and a click or two. That’s all.

Best,
MWS
