Since you published this book in March 2014, why are you asking now?

That was just a b.s. publish of a rough draft I offered for free that I wanted feedback on. then I went and finished it, revised a little, added a little, threw in some illustrations and bam.. Official version updated. Surprised you noticed lol

The book is 74 pages, so I'd say this is a good starting point.

However, it's showing up in

Kindle Store > Kindle Short Reads > Two hours or more (65-100 pages) > Teen & Young Adult
Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Metaphysical & Visionary
Kindle Store > Kindle Short Reads > Two hours or more (65-100 pages) > Science Fiction & Fantasy

Yet the blurb reads like a self-help guide. I think you might want to change the blurb to make it sound more like fantasy, assuming that's what it is from what I read in the Look Inside.

I looked at the books from the third link and many are $0.99 all the way up to $3.99. However, most have stronger 'fantasy-vibe' covers. Yours looks more like it could be self-help. The font says self-help and the book layout says it too. It's not a bad cover given the designer, but it's not selling your book as fantasy.

Blurb, cover, and Look Inside are your advertisements to potential readers. You want them to be as attractive as cat nip to a cat. Grats on writing a book, now comes the real fun of getting sales!
