Amazon Ramblings

Seventh Star Press Open House

For those who have followed me for years, you already know how badly I want to write full-time.  For those relatively new to following this blog, please trust me when I say that pretty much my every waking thought is somehow connected to making my writing career successful and moving out of education.  Right now, I feel like the books are gathering some momentum on Amazon.  There have been a couple of recent spikes in sales, and books two, three, and four have seen really good movement.  It wouldn’t take much of a push to cross over into Amazon’s top seller category.  To that end, I’m pushing with all I have right now.

If you can, please help spread the word.  Please, take a moment to “Like” my Amazon Author’s Profile page.  The like button is located in the upper right-hand corner just below the Cart.  There are also buttons for sharing that page on Facebook and Twitter.  If you would, please spread my page around and generate a little activity.  Amazon factors all of this into their algorithm for sharing an author’s work, and the more momentum we can get right now, the closer we can get the series into the top top seller rankings.

If you’ve read my books and haven’t yet written a review on Amazon or Goodreads, please do so if you have the time.  These reviews also factor into the algorithm and go a long, long way to increasing exposure.  Most importantly, please leave an honest review.  I’d much prefer a dozen honest three star reviews to one fake five star.  The key is simply the volume of reviews that show activity with each book.  If you can, please take a minute and leave reviews for the books you’ve read.  There’s real momentum gathering, and it won’t take much more to push it over the top.

For all of you who have already supported me so much over the years, thank you for believing in me.  Your encouragement and feedback and engagement mean more than I can ever tell you.  I’m truly grateful for each and every one of you.

One thought on “Amazon Ramblings”

  1. Somehow the “Like” button escaped me even though I’d looked for it – thanks for describing exactly where it is because I do, indeed, like your books! Best of luck in going full-time author. I’d like nothing more than to see you be fully happy in what you’re doing.
