[b]Bombay Mixx[/b] - Your page looks just fine but I can't see any TAGS? Without them people won't be able to find your book. Have you considered putting it up for a few days on Select-Free?. Might get sales started. Apart from this you'll need to do some solid promotion. Check my webpage for ideas. Good luck with it. [i]James[/i]

OK Charlie, let me know when it's free and I'll grab a copy.
Actually my main Aliens book has just attracted a 1-star review in the UK. A very polite review but despite all the vast collection of the humerous bits in the extended product description (so the buyer could see exactly what they are getting) he still went ahead ang got a copy and rubbished it.
This is what you're fighting against no matter how good your product description. It's on the UK site -

http://www.amazon.co.uk/ALIENS-GUIDE-PLANET-EARTH-ebook/dp/B0084V0T12/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1337555738&sr=1-1

If you like the preview I'm happy to email you a free copy...you might like to review it if you think it's worthwhile.
Just give me your email address here......
Cheers

Thanks for the feedback. I've checked out your promo page and there are definitely some ideas there that I'll be using. Promotion does not come naturally to me and I need all the help I can get so you'll see a lot more hits for that page over the coming weeks.

[b] Beneath Her Skin[/b] - Linda, your page looks OK. Two possible ways to fire this up - First....Select Free for a few days to get it out there.
Secondly as it's a niche market book Google up poetry websites and email a blurb to all applicable sites. Apart from that just get promoting.
Use ideas from my promo website. Good luck with it.

[b]Accursed[/b] - Your page looks OK but I can only see two TAGS attached to it? I think you're allowed 9 which means more people can find your book while searching under different categories. If you check out my promo page you'll find out how to get a couple of reviews and then simply get promoting. Good luck!

[b]Go for it!: 100 Ways to Feel Young, Vibrant, Interested[/b] - Mary, a nicely presented page and great reviews. I don't see any TAGS on it though? Without tags potential buyers won't be able to find it. Just needs some heavy promotion. Check my website for ideas. Good luck with it! - [i]James[/i]

[i][b]MESSAGE TO ALL FROM JAMES[/b][/i]

[b]I am running short of time these days so am able to only briefy glance at all books posted. If I feel I can help I post a comment. But almost ALL the books posted need promotion. Please go to my website and use the ideas there to help sell your book.

So if I don't make a comment on your listing you can assume that I think your website is OK but just lacking in promotion.

If you're a newbie author you need to get yourself established so keep your price low. You can always raise it later. And PLEASE edit your book properly so there are no mistakes. If you should get a negative review which is critical of your book then pay attention to what the reviewer says and make changes suggested by their comments. Some of these negative reviews can be extremely helpful to you.

Also if you're a newbie you might like to run your book on Select Free for 2-3 days. This definitely attracts customers and gets your product known. After the "Free" period finishes you might be surprised to see that you make paid sales![/b]

Software Guru Chance Winston is about to unveil his monster application on the world. The computer-generated alternate world will revolutionize the way we use computers. A secret deal with his Japanese colleagues will all but guarantee Chance’s stronghold on the market, but things are never smooth at the top.

Between keeping an eye on the lives of his 3 young-adult daughters, catering to a plotting ex-wife who has suddenly returned to town and straight into his life, and keeping his Foreign counterparts happy, Chance is going to have his hands full.
