My book is up on Amazon--and since that's online...

Hope I will be forgiven for posting that here. But I'm genuinely excited and I never dreamed I would be.

 

If anyone's interested besides me it's http://www.amazon.com/dp/1468173235

Re: My book is up on Amazon-but search doesn't find it

Congrats, Renee. My novel, The Settler, is now on sale on Amazon.com. However, if you search for that title you cannot find it. Only by adding my name to the search string does it appear. Am I being impatient? It went onto Amazon on March12.

Re: My book is up on Amazon--and since that's online...

I to have a book on Amazon but have sold none.  Again, you have to do something and I am at a loss.  Not even my "friends" will buy copies of my books.  I am beginning to think there is something very wrong, but then I read some of what I have written and compare it with other books I have read and it seems to be of the same quality so I'm thinking it is all in the advertising.  My next step is going to be to get my books ready for Kindle & other like contraptions.  You have me by nine years but I know what you mean about having the energy to be persistant.  I like your spunk!

>> so I'm thinking it is all in the advertising

 

Right, the harder part of writing a book is marketing it. Advertise it on book promoting sites. You can start with my site (it's free): http://askdavid.com/free-book-promotion

it's going to take a little while for your title to fully populate in Amazon search results. so just hold your horses!
