Really!!!The problem is, I have already published like an original, one-of-a-kind, pulitzer prize worthy (no exaggeration) eBook, and the play I'm getting is tedious- what I am asking is, how did I make something this wonderful and it's being missed! ahhhhhhhhhh! it really is exclusive!... how do i get more readers interested? i use a lot of facebook for ghetto publicity, and I've sold a couple through it.- Wow.- I spend like a half/year writing it, and that is all.....
a) you could write a book in proper English - not the illiterate text speak in your sample b) you could put a description on the Amazon page so people actually knew what the book was about and were maybe impressed enough to try it - (Though the download sample would probably dissuade them from proceeding) c) you could upload an author page so the interested knew something about you d) you could write a book longer than a few thousand words - I can tell from the brevity of the download is shorter than some of my hubs e) you could start a blog and connect the RSS feed to the author page on amazon I mentioned above f) you could use a proper author name - instead of one that sounds like a mistake - maybe you confused the publisher and the author? g) you could categorise it correctly - I don't think its anything to do with architecture - maybe its fiction or memoir?
But most of all you could write a book worth my time to read
OH Chanroth, where is your poetry book. I would be interested in seeing it. I wrote a children's book and it is available on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com and at my website: <snipped link - do not self-promote in the forums>. I have sold quite a few books and continually market it around town, in and out of state.
It doesn't strike me as deliberately humorous, just like a slap-dash job. But that impression may be partly biased by seeing how the author approached everything else do do with creating and selling his book.
I could also have said 'effective'. I think know what you are doing, and doing it on purpose does help if you are trying to make money from ebooks. Unless the goal is to look like a buffoon and charge people to laugh at you--in which case he is half way there.
If selling a few thousand words of freestyle text, with a cover that seems to have been bodged together in MSPaint, for almost $4 was effective... well, I doubt OP would have two threads on this forum complaining about at lack sales.
But what would I know? I am not a self-proclaimed genius who thinks he deserves a Pulitzer.
Im ok with a "gritty" cover and an unconventional writing style. I dont think I could be convinced to buy it as a standalone work from the merits of the sample alone.
But, as a bigger package - perhaps double the price and donate half to homeless shelters
write a description that would attract (IMO) the limited market of people who would be interested. Somehow embrace and highlight that its "slap-dash" outsider, gritty, "authentic" in your marketing efforts.
This is actually an experimental book (or, I guess, argueably so) that is a one-of-a-kind and never thought of before. In other words, it's worth like 5,000,000 dollars for its concept alone, has one a U.K. award, and has its writer guest-starring on Conan O'Brien in about a month. So yeah, $3.99 isn't that bad. Psycheskinner, I need you to relax a bit. I'm talking a massage chair, a glass of wine, and a steak or somethin' because it's, well...lol, just a book. -johnathan-
Why will no one read my book?I've written a fantasy book and want to publish it in October, but whenever I ask someone to read it they conveniently disappear or are suddenly too "busy" to read it! Even...
You may have already done it, but what I would suggest would be to put the first chapter, or the first part of a chapter in a hub. If people read it, and are interested, $3.99 would be a great price, and they'd be...
How many words should an ebook have?For example if you are writing a non fiction book based on someones life. I know some are quite short, and others the length of a published novel, but what is acceptable? Thanks!
