That last post I did was another of my stupid mistakes where I think I know what I am talking about but it turns out I don’t…

When YOU type Amazon.com into your search bar, you will not see my newly published book on the main page. It turns out that Amazon.com remembers your previous searches and sticks stuff on that front page just to make you happy. You will see stuff that makes you happy, not me. How selfish is that?

Thank goodness that I have a college graduate daughter around who actually reads my blog and is never shy about letting me know when I am being stupid.

Sorry about the confusion.

    Oh dear, I read all this after the fact and so sorry but I laughed loud when I read your last post! This is really a learning curve, and we are all clueless. You have to market market market now! Maybe write a few short posts in the genre of your book.. Then you can say if you like this… buy my book. You could put them in a different heading on your posts page. Just a thought. Or do a heading for your book so people can read about it, similar to your about page. Less skill involved in either of those ideas for a short term marketing scheme.

    So you mean Benzeknees doesn’t come up first on other people’s searches for benzeknees?

  3. Seeing the newly published book of an aspiring author on the front page *would* make me happy. Alas, Amazon let us both down. Sorry for the disappointment. I track the ranking of my books on Amazon and Barnes and Noble until the rank is deep into 6 digits. Then I just go open a new bottle.
    Hang in and keep at it.

    Will you look on my blog and see what it says instead of “You are following this blog”?

  5. I would be happy to let you know when you’re being stupid too…

  6. I did think “How on earth has he manged that after only just launching his book the other day?” So now I know! Can’t wait to buy your book. Still up for that poetry collaboration?

    I was going to tell you but didn’t want to rain on your birthday parade.
