Well, I'll give it a go.

DO THIS RESEARCH YOURSELF.

Stop asking the people on here to do everything for you. They've already given you a large list of issues to fix. Stop being lazy and google use Google. The information you want is out there, free, for everyone. You just have to do the work.
Now, you can get mad or you can spend the time doing the research that is required of ALL authors.

Thank you for your time anyway. To start with, I want to let you know that I'm not and never lazy. I'm not a newbie on amazon. Since I opened this thread, I've got valuable information from those who understood what I meant and needed, and right now, I'm putting there costly advice to use, to become successful in Amazon book business. I'm very familiar with google. I'm the one who knows what I want from this thread, you can only assume you know them. Some of the positive hidden details I've got from here at once, you don't get them together when you search google. I thank God, those who know what I really want and how I can improve and sell great copies monthly have been helping me and others who need this kind of assistance here since.

But you're not telling me what I want to hear, so I'm ignoring you.

I'm listening to the ones who agree with me and are sympathetic.

NO, I think we've all figured out that you want to get rich quick, and that you're deluded enough to think you're as good as the ones who do well in your genre, and should therefore be earning the same income.

You mean God hasn't answered your prayers and you've tried Google, and all the websites that tell you how to make money are no better than your own books.

Yes, a few people have been patting your hand and murmuring soothing words. There are always nice people willing to do that. Hell, I often do this myself. But you had all the answers you needed within the first few responses, yet you have continued to milk this thread for all its worth.

If your books are not selling, there are a number of reasons;
They're poorly written, and people can see that from the LI.
You're writing in a genre that has little interest, and is already saturated.
Your readership has found its favourites and is inflexible.
You're not advertising in the right places, well enough, or at all.

Examine your books, and accept that at least one (probably two) of the above will be the answer in your case.

And for goodness sake, take your head out of the sand, and listen to the likes of Donna, Ward, Emily and Angela. They're talking sense!

My advice to you this fine Saturday morning? Improve, adapt, or take up knitting!

Just my thoughts. Best wishes. J

Your post indicates that you are looking for someone else with experience to solver the issue and give you the answer to increasing sales without actually doing the work to research the issue on your own. So here is your answer in one word. MARKETING

No one else can tell you what marketing will work because each product, author, and genre is unique. What works for one person will not always work for another. You need to do the leg work, research your genre, your competition and the marketing options available to your. You can't rely on a forum such as this to give you the magic path to success. You need statistic, and hard data on the market and advertising options.
