So today, because it is Friday and because I'm shrugging off a less than enthusiastic review … [Continue reading...]

We all know that if we want our books to sell, and sell well, it pays to make sure that we're somewhere in the visible range on Amazon. The problem is, that's harder than it sounds! There are over a million books on Amazon.com and even more if we count the paperbacks on Create Space, so how do we stop our books from languishing down in the 100,000s and get them up to someplace … [Continue reading...]
