What People Say


My Amazon listing number has gone from about 250,000 to 40,000, which is the best I've ever had on Amazon so far, and this has only happened in the last few days, so clearly people are buying my book from your listing. Thank-you so much from an author whose 20 years of caregiving might actually be paying off in monetary value (as well as of course the heart,soul, spirit value of learning from people on the strange brave journey of dementia.) Thanks to you.

I've also gone up to number 2 in the dementia listing, likewise from your featuring me on your website. I'm so grateful. Thank-you so much for what you're doing for all of us (and me)

Within a few hours of the e-Catalog being sent to their mailing list, our book jumped in #4 on Amazon's Adult Children of Alcoholics category, and, #69 in Substance Abuse category.  Needless to say, we are super-pleased and excited.

I had a BIG bump on Amazon after the e-catalog came out and it has to have been from the First Chapter mailing because no other marketing was done at that time.

My investment in an ad at First Chapters Plus is the only paid advertising from which I see real results.  Every time I look for Ghost Orchid at a book seller site or other web search, my ad at First Chapters Plus pops up!  My ad is multiplied, just as the inquiries to my web site and additional sales.  Thanks, First Chapters Plus, for your front page web status!

The results speak for themselves...Look what happens in the middle of every month vis-à-vis hits to my Website [when the First Chapter Plus e-Catalog goes out.]

First Chapter Plus is outstanding. I write monthly book reviews for Cleveland Business Connects Magazine and it’s wonderful to direct readers to fresh titles.

I have used your catalog to look and see what is coming out.  I have found it very interesting.

I am extremely happy with the quality of reviewers who have requested copies in direct response to the FCP newsletter.  So far 100% of books requested have been reviewed and each one posted in 10 unique locations.  This is as good as it gets.

We got a spike in sales this month in Karen Sherman's "Mindfulness and the Art of Choice" after appearing in First Chapter Plus. 46 copies so far this month (November 19, 2010) which is about double our normal volume on this title.

As a voracious reader and long time book reviewer, I love the opportunity offered by First Chapter Plus.  It's a great way to find out about new publications, and to network with publishers and authors.  In fact, I have already read and reviewed several listings from the June e-Catalog, and am looking forward to the next issue!
