Last night I was feeling a little down in the mouth as my Advertising/Promoting budget is…well…non-existant. So it’s me, my blog, and my tweets/facebook. Sometimes Pinterest (hey, that’s Admin time, not at all farting around on the internet…honest). And of course, I was feeling very grateful to those of you who go around actually talking about the books! Since, of course, that’s the best way to spread the word for an Indie like me, and also, clearly I have paid none of you to do so! Hahaaa!
What was my point, you ask? (Been a while since you’ve had rambling Gen, hasn’t it?)
A friend forwarded this email to me this morning, and holy hobnobbing leprechauns, Amazon actually advertise FOR me. I didn’t pay them to either. Usually they recommend other people’s books. Not mine.
Is it luck? Is it an algorithm?
I hope you’ll keep spreading the word and I’ll keep writing. And next week I find out if I move forward in Amazon’s contest, so I’ll either be drowning my sorrows or celebrating, either way….
