Chapter 7: What's In A Name? Let's Review.

Alex reveals the origin story for his (somewhat pretentious) pen name and explains why reader reviews--particularly on Amazon--are crucial to an author's success.

Alex quotes a bit from an excellent post by author Sandra Smith about doing reviews. You can find it here.
