Buried in the rubble

I have initiated another Countdown Promotion that began today. As with the last time, the book appears at full price at the top of the page. If you page down you can see the Countdown Price, but often, people just move on. I have to ask for this to be attended to. This is the second time.

The other problem is that my books do not pull up on searches as being listed anywhere. My name is not on any list. I do not show up in Customers Also bought Items By.

I am thinking I could have better success if it was a level playing field. I am also thinking that if Amazon is such a technilogical monster that it would have arrays that impact all designated price listings for any given product. Apparently not.

I am discouraged at this point and I am getting complaints from readers about it.

How do you have readers to complain if nobody can find your books? A few things; you won't show up on the also boughts if nobody bought, Amazon is not going to change the design of their product page just for you, if you run a countdown deal you need to advertise it. Otherwise no one will find it.

Amazon have given us a great platform to publish our books and stories and for that privilege they charge nothing; it is up to us to get our books seen. By the way, there are no Amazon staff on these boards, you are talking to other authors.
