Three for Three: A Pulp Revolution Call to Arms

One of the easiest, cheapest and fastest ways to show your support for an author is to write an Amazon review.  The algorithms that operate in the substrate of that website use the reviews a book has to determine how strongly it sells that book to random shoppers.  As a result, even a few reviews helps push the sales of a book, and push it up in the rankings.  The best part is that reviews are permanent fixtures, so they continue to operate, whereas sales represent a short term bump.

To that end, I'm calling for a review bomb.  Here's how it works:  On March 3, write three sentences to describe three books.

That's it.

Choose three titles off the list of books you've read. Spread the word, boost the signal for your favorite authors, particularly the smaller independent authors and those who are Pulp Revolution friendly.

It sounds simple, but it will have a big impact.  So spread the word: Three for three on 3/3.


  1. That's a good idea. I just twitch at doing a one sentence review, I feel pressure to knock out multiple paragraphs. Which is part of why I'm not doing enough reviews.

  2. Sounds doable. I can handle this task.

  3. Great reminder, but not just waiting for March. Just finished two yesterday, and one last weekend. Off to the reviewer desk!

    Lining up three to post on 3/3 with the group.

  4. Thank you, gents. This is one of those small things that adds up over time.

  5. Remind us a day or two before!
