Both your pieces of advice are useless unless the OP (or any author) has a well-written, professionally presented product to promote.

Gajanan,

I'm sorry to point this out, but having been on the community for a whole week, and having released the disaster you consider to be your masterpiece less than two weeks ago, as has been pointed out, you are hardly best placed to be dispensing advice to others on the forum.

Since a glance at your work now reveals that it is even more of a disaster than it was when you originally published it, might I suggest that you spend more of your time correcting your blurb and interior, and less time pretending to be the font of all publishing knowledge, lest some poor unsuspecting newbie actually thinks you have a clue what you're talking about.

You might want to start with the Look Inside, where your book no longer has a cover picture, copyright page or dedication, but instead jumps straight into your TOC.
You might then want to look up the proper use of commas and full stops, as you don't seem to know what they're for.
You might also want to use some other translation method than Google.

These are just my recommendations. However, as you already told me you were going to take people's advice on the other thread, and have obviously done nothing of the sort, I can assure you I won't be holding my breath.

Just adding to the above: The book by Khirao must be about 40 pages as NOTHING of the book text shows in the Look Inside.
I would take the book off and get it fixed. It is a shame that those who do not know the English language do not understand the messes they publish. Gotta give them at least a 'B' for effort.

I'm thinking 'D' for disturbing, or 'E' for exasperating. The horse has been led to water, so far he doesn't seem to have downed a drop. Bless all who tried to help. B

What about an 'F' for... no, maybe we'd better skip 'F'.

How about 'G' for grumpy? I'll take that one!

Only one of your books has potential, but the look inside is broken so no way to judge the content. Had you spent all of your time for a full-length on that one, including pro editing and pro book cover you might be selling.
