I recently published a book called "The Theory of Autoimmunity". Until now I cannot find it in any list, I also do not have a statistic. No reviews also. Does it mean it doesnot cause interest?

If you haven't found it, you haven't looked. Since you can go directly to the sales page from your Bookshelf, you shouldn't have to search. Unfortunately, your "book" is there:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078XTCZRZ/

By "ststistic," I assume you meant ranking. That won't come about until someone actually makes a purchase. You can get a ranking by buying your own publication.

I have no idea whether The Theory of Autoimmunity "doesnot cause interest" or not, but I doubt many people want to pay $15 for a 22-page e-book with unjustified text written by no one they've ever heard of. There are nearly 600 books competing with yours, and many of them are reasonably priced full-length books with professional formatting and editing. They're also written by recognized experts in the field who state their qualifications in blurb, book and bio.

If you've had no sales, then the 'interest' people have in your book should be obvious.

Salamander is absolutely right about your book being visible, although, I would go so far as to say that your cover is virtually invisible! If you must have a white cover on a white background, then you need to add a border.

As to why you have no sales, apart from the awful cover, why would anyone pay $15 for a 22 page e-book written by an obviously amateur writer that nobody has heard of? Would you?

Your blurb is just as bad, with the word 'deceases' where I think you mean 'diseases'.

When you look inside, you have your cover showing twice, and then your name and title a third time. That's the only front matter you have. No copyright page, or dedication, or TOC (not that your book is long enough to need one).

And then your story begins and it's about the Gods and Pandora's box! That's all you talk about in the very few paragraphs showing.

What on earth does that have to do with your title? I was expecting a medical book on... well, autoimmunity!

If potential readers are as confused as me, then I would be amazed if you ever get a sale.

Sorry to be harsh, but I would strongly recommend you consider what it is about your book that you think is worth publishing.

And if you still think you've got something worthwhile to say, change the cover, change the blurb, and price it more realistically at no more than $1.99.

Would you excuse me I am not a native english speaker. You cannot qualify a book as blurb if you haven't read it. Now it costs as a promotion 0 cent.

The word blurb was not saying IT was your book. Go back and reread what was written to you.

Hi Tanya. I noticed your book is currently free and I downloaded it. Thank you for the opportunity to see what you've written.

I agree with the others who've posted that it needs a different cover. I understand why you're using the ? but the book needs a more eye-catching cover to compete with others in its genre.

Most importantly, I think you need to find someone who can help with editing the sentence structure.

For example, in one section you've written: "If we get deceased with the more rare diseases" ... that should be: "If we die of the more rare diseases"

I have an autoimmune illness. I can see that you really want to share information about these types of illnesses. Please understand that your book needs editing, and a more intriguing cover.

Also, for this type of book you'll need to have an author page which can be made at Amazon Author Central. Potential readers will want to know something about the person who wrote this book, your education and background, and what led you to write about this subject.

Thank you for the advice. But everything you propose costs money. I am sorry you suffer an autoimmune desease. This book perhaps could help.

If you have a friend or relative who could help with proofreading and editing, that might be a good way to go.

Regarding the autoimmune illness that I have, I have been taking part in clinical trials for many years. That helps with covering medical expenses and puts me into the latest research being done. I've read your book's chapter on diet, and I've found that certain diets can make a difference.

To find your book in multiple lists, simply go to kin dle books and type in your key words, one at a time. You will find it under all of them.

Hi, I published a new book which is 214 pages with a lot of proof material. Before publishing the first book I spoke to a progfessor in immunology in Heidelberg who told me they have eorked on my idea 1990ies but stopped probably because there was no financial support for such ideas. So do not underestimate the advices given in it. I made also spell check. I would be happy if you recommend the book further.

I'm not saying anything about your book. I was simply answering your question. You asked how to find it and I told you. I hope you have great luck with your book.
