In an effort to ensure it prioritizes much needed products, Amazon has shuffled items not in those priority categories down the list when it comes to shipping.

Some Stats and What Next?
With my recent Amazon ad seeming to be a complete and utter bust, not to mention a huge waste of precious advertising dollars, I sort of feel like I've hit this insurmountable wall and I honestly don't know what to do from here which is insanely frustrating and discouraging. There are all kinds of parts… Continue reading Some Stats and What Next?
Amazon Ad: Round 2
My last Amazon ad ran for about a month. It was supposed to be more of a test and to learn about the process, but it seemed to be relatively successful, though so much of it wasn't a direct 1 to 1 kind of a result. I've decided to take what I learned from that… Continue reading Amazon Ad: Round 2

Book Bloggers and Supporting Indie Authors
Since publishing my book and attempting to get more involved in supporting other indie authors, I've noticed there are several issues that indie authors face. One of the biggest issues is getting exposure and reviews. How many readers will actually pick up a book that has zero or only a handful of reviews or even… Continue reading Book Bloggers and Supporting Indie Authors

This applies to all authors, traditionally published, indie or any other type that might be out there. It could just as easily apply in the basic context to all kinds of areas, not just authors, but authors and books are my focus for this list. You would think some of these would be common sense… Continue reading PSA: Do’s And Don’ts Of Supporting Authors
