Maybe Old Dogs CAN Learn New Tricks, After All (And I Don't Mean Sasha)!

I recently wrote a review for a wonderful book, Sasha: A Very Special Dog Tale of a Very Special Epi-Dog by Brian L. Porter. If you love animals, especially dogs, this is a don’t miss book! Sasha and I have something in common: we're both epileptic.

The author asked that I also add the review to the book’s page at Amazon UK. It had never occurred to me that I could do that. I’d never even checked the pages for my own books at Amazon’s foreign sites! I’m the dummy from traditional publishing who was used to having the publisher do everything for me. I still have a lot to learn. A lot.

Anyway, I have a request for those of you fellow authors who have given my books those great reviews (William, Eve, Mari, Shelly…you all know who you are….). It’s easy to post reviews at Amazon UK, Australia, France, and all of the others (I’ve lost count of how many countries have Amazon sites now). Just log in with your Amazon US login info and paste your reviews in there. And if you have books I’ve reviewed, I’ll be doing the same for you. It shouldn’t take too long….

  1. I'll have to look up where the other Amazon sites are. I suppose Japan and New Zealand, probably Italy and Austria and Germany.

  2. That is so wonderful of you. I must get this book and have Adam read it to me. With my brain/fog problems reading is not something I can do. Short bursts like a blog and a comment is all I can handle. Even if it a blog I love, if it is two long with too many words I can't read it. and will comments about the one think I read.
    I have several of your books and wish I could review them. The first four pages were fabulous.....
    You are a "gud dug" friend !

    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

    1. Gayle, you would love this book! And you should tell the Square Ones' story. Maybe co-author it with your son.

  3. Finding my review can take time (I did post one on the UK), but getting onto the other Amazon sites can be frustrating.

    1. I agree. Some of them are almost impossible.

  4. That is so true and very interesting. I hadn't thought about book reviews for other countries. Awhile back I was looking for reviews on a herbal thing sold from the UK and I had to go to the UK Amazon, but still, I didn't think about it for book reviews.

    So much to learn for me, too.

    1. It never occurred to me that the reviews wouldn't appear on all Amazon sites.

  5. Norma, I couldn't find your review for this book on Amazon. The other reviews made it sound like a very nice read.

    Must be I've got a lot to learn about navigating Amazon reviews too.

    1. It's there somewhere. And it is an excellent book.

  6. What? You mean if I post a review on Amazon, it doesn't carry over to all the other countries? That's just too technologically backwards! Amazon needs to consolidate!

    1. I think each country wants to keep their customers' reviews separate. Not sure why.

  7. It is so funny how amazon works. You would think that the reviews would carry over and combine...

    1. They do publish them in most countries, but only count the star ratings from their own countries.
