You asked in your other thread for feedback on your books. I've read the description of this book on Smashwords, and I won't be downloading it because it has what is for me a fatal flaw - spelling and grammar mistakes in the blurb:

Quote:
While piecing together the mysterious events leading up to the crash, and his fiancés death, he tries to find his way to their cabin through the dense woods.
There are two problems with this:

1. The word "fiancé" means "a man who is about to be married". The equivalent word for a woman is "fiancée" with an extra "e".
2. The apostrophe is the phrase "fiancée's death" is missing.

It doesn't matter how good your book is, you only get one chance to make a first impression, and the fact that there are mistakes of this nature in the blurb is an instant turn-off. I'd strongly urge you to check for this type of error rigorously.

The What are your red flags? thread may be of interest.

There's also an extraneous comma after "crash."
