I really think Amazon has STACKED the deck against us Indies. TR Harris, Saxon and a few others are doing well in the best selling scifi series listing but it has been taken over by the TITLE books. Harris and Saxon do well because of a loyal reader base that was in place before the Amazon move. A few months ago there would be 10 or 12 new scifi novels on the HNR listing. Now there are 60 with a majority of "Title" novels. Saxon however still has it figured to hit that coveted #1 spot. Saxon is a great tactical man in addition to being a world class writer. I am still selling about a 100 a month. Anyways no great desire to write at this time, busy taking care of wifey and other family members.
Tom (Harris) seems to be doing great with his scifi series. Best to all of you.
Thanks, Traci. I see you pop in here occasionally. It ain't like it used to be, but a lot of the trouble makers got banned and it's not so bad now - unless you count all the spam in the General Question forum. If only we could get them the spam the phising sites that are trying to sell our books illegally.
Well Wow. I'm feeling lonely. Everyone of the KDP stalwarths are sounding off. I just had to say hello too, although I was far from a stalwarth. Hi Traci - I have begun publishing a serialized Christian Devotional. Please check it out. it is free and I would love your feedback or anyone else's for that matter.
You wouldn't know me. I'm one of the silent readers but I just wanted to say that I've always appreciated your posts and miss your presence in the forums. Hope you can find your way back to us soon. I'm sure there are a several more books just waiting for you to pen and I know that there is a lot more wisdom (or just stress relieving posts) that you can impart to us. Good Luck to you and hope to see you back again soon,
