Amazon Author Followers

I recently heard that having a bunch of followers on Amazon for your author page get you more exposure so I’m going to try something new.

Let’s get a FOLLOW TRAIN going for Sweet Romance/Clean & Wholesome Authors. I want to stay in this is John ra for my author page because I don’t want to mess up Amazon’s shifty algorithms.

1. If you like the genre mentioned above click here and Follow My Author Page.

2. If you are an author who meets the above criteria above and want me to follow you back – drop a comment in the comment box below with your link to your Amazon author page.

Please and Thank you!

47 days and counting!

Standard

My series goes live on November 1st and as I study keywords, audiences, categories, and algorithms, I can’t help but think how the publishing world has changed since 2012 when I first started out on this road. There are so many more tools for us authors today than just a few years ago.

For those wondering what it takes to be successful – well – I’m not sure but I think I have the formula figured out below.

Formula for successful publishing: Study everything-everywhere, apply what you can, do the work of 8 people, worry you are not doing enough work and need to hire more of you, rewrite your copy, re-edit and second guess every sentence, and then toss it all in a jar, shake vigorously. Set the jar out in the sun hoping a rainbow hits it and grows into a magical unicorn.

The Kindle Scout Plunge

Standard

I did it! I submitted a manuscript to Kindle Scout!  For those of you that don’t know what Kindle Scout is, it is a platform where you can submit a manuscript of around 50,000 words and sign an exclusivity contract and bam! Your work is then on a platform where an excerpt is offered and voted on by Amazon Kindle Scout users for 30 days. You only get 3 votes a month before your voting power starts over. We as the author do  not see who voted, how many votes were given, or where we stand opposed to another book in the line-up. If you are a reader it gives you publishing power on what will be published next. It is a wonderful site that I am not sure a lot of people know about. If you vote on a book that you like and it is chosen for publication then you will receive the book if it is picked and will get the opportunity to write a review.

I have been following them closely for sometime watching and dreaming of what that kind of exposure could mean. Well, I am about to find out. Right now my book is in the review process and then it will go live. Every time I release a new book, under my name or a pen name, there is an instant swarm of butterflies released in my belly. Well, I am digesting those suckers today! I submitted the manuscript. All I can do now is wait and see. I have two more in the series ready to go to print once this Kindle Scout Campaign is completed.

WISH ME LUCK!

I have a love hate relationship with putting my written creations out there for, I want to say the masses but it is more like a baker’s dozen!

I will be posting the book title and other info once the Book is approved and live on Kindle Scout. Hope you will follow me on this journey over the next few months!
