Default The Top 10 Things All Authors Should Know About Amazon


The first one caught me by surprise Your Amazon rating has nothing to do with sales. Really? Reading it was an inspiration.


Amazon reviews carry weight.


CreateSpace uses Ingram's services I didn't even know anything about Ingram. And it IS a service you have to pay for!


Claim your book via Author Central this I knew about!


A very good article @ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brooke...b_6744386.html

That's very interesting- I'm completely ignorant to this, so it was a nice read. The review aspect makes sense, and is always the hardest aspect for me. Thanks for sharing.

I don't think the review aspect is true at all. Although as i'm on 49 at the moment it would be nice if it was.
