Jeff Bennington is a good person to follow if you’re considering publishing…. wisdom abounds on his site –
From March, 2013 –
In Jan 2012 I worked with a couple authors who were having a hard time selling their books, and I helped one of them hit Amazon’s Top-100 in the paid store, and the other came very close. Since that time, I have helped other authors evaluate the basic elements of their Amazon book page that are actually “UN-selling” their book.
Believe it or not, many new and not so new authors are scratching their heads, wondering why their book, as well written as it is, is not selling. They look at their monthly KDP reports, and their Amazon ranking and wonder what’s going on. If that is you, the problem could be that you are on the inside looking in, and are not seeing the big picture. The following is an example of such an author.
