Search in the Kindle store for your book by ASIN, or by author name and title. How long ago did you publish it?

I'm afraid that at least half of the ebooks uploaded to KDP don't seem to sell at all without active promotion. Good luck!

It looks like "Vengeance of the Afterlife/ The floor sounds of creepy noises" is available when you search under Books. Perhaps you didn't complete the publishing form because I don't see it available under genres (Categories in the publishing form). That might help a little. But when I clicked Look Inside, I noticed that there were rarely quote marks around dialogue phrases, and few possessives (e.g. Carol's) had an apostrophe + s ('s). There were other typos as well. That will not encourage sales. Hope this helps a bit.

I see you're new here so I thought I'd let you know you can edit your post, including the Subject, by opening your own message, clicking on Edit, then making the change and saving. I thought you might want to correct your typo in the Subject line.

Sadly, there are some very serious reasons for that. You are in dire need of a quality editor, just to start. (I found the book on the .uk site, as it doesn't seem to show up in a Google search for the .com site, though there were links to other Amazon stores.)

The price is also unrealistic. Nobody is going to spend that kind of money for an e-book by an unknown author. You need to drop it down to something in the vicinity of $2.99 before people will even consider buying it.

Jacqueline, the book is just brim full of errors, as others are saying. Sentences are nonsensical in places; grammar, spelling and punctuation really let you down. words run together with no spaces.

Once edited, a launch price at that level still won't get readers; the book will need promotions.

A professional-looking cover also helps sell. It's extremely hard for all new authors so what we launch must be as close to perfect as we can make it. Take time, weeks even, to read and edit.

They're generally up front across the pond as well. I must admit I had a very different impression of the content when I clicked on tis thread :)

I couldn't work out if it was a boob as in a 'boo boo' or the plot line of the book. The latter would have got my attention particularly given the title.

I keep hoping this thread will be updated, but I guess the OP has disappeared. What you might call a hit-and-run boob job...

Yes, as great typos go, this is right up there with one in a book I encountered in art school, that continually refered to "contemporary fart" when I assume it meant "art" :-)

I glanced at your Look Inside. Truly appalling.

It appears English is not your native language.
Why the extra lines?
Sorry to say you need help with sentences, punctuation and also formatting.
