You need to add a picture of the book and a better description if you really want people to order the book.
There just isn't enough information about it.

You need to put some time into this.

In my experience, most books that are given out for review are given out for free.  I have never had to pay for a copy of a book which I was asked to review.  (In this case, by paying a credit, I would consider it paying for a review book.)

I agree with the others. Cover art is easy to add and helps us decide it the book "looks good". On top of that there is no info about the book. No one really wants to go out on a limb and order an unknown. Update the info on the book page and maybe you will get some orders and then some reviews.

good luck

Remy and Dennis are scam artists. 'Nuff said.

Sorry, as a description, that's not enough said to inspire me to spend a credit. What do you tell your friends and family it is about to get them to read it? Is it a mystery, humorous, dark, a biography?

I tend to agree with everyoned else.  There is no cover art, you don't really have a discription of the book that would make anyone want to spend even a credit for it.  Is this even really a book?   it may be rude for me to ask that question but, after reading everything in this post and looking at the page for the book, I'm just a little skeptical. 


Add a picture, get a better discription of the book, add some tags for the book, and maybe you should offer it to a few of the people here for free to get them to read it and review it so others might be willing to order it.

Thank you all for the comments. Unfortunately, I have edited the book data several times and every time it says that it is pending approval by a moderator, and then the changes never appear.

I am anxiously awaiting my copy of the book! I will for sure give a review and add some insight here when I read it! Thanks!

I was able to update it, but I will post it here as well:

Remy and Dennis are scam artists. Their daily life consists of simple yet effective scams that put even the most experienced homeowner out of commission. But something isn't right with Dennis. His world is spiraling out of control, and when he meets Shannon, the gothic interpretation of his dreams, things only take a turn for the worse... or do they?

Just a plug for the data edits team....they are typically SWAMPED on a good day, but especially after a weekend they are more so.  Give them time...they will work through the edits as quickly as they can.
