message 1: by Harrie (new)

Harrie Rose (harrierose) | 9 comments Allison Boozer, the Marketing person at Create/Space, Amazon's self-publishing house told me that to get your book placed as an "...all recommended" or other favored slot, YOU NEED TO HAVE PEOPLE CLICK ON TO YOUR TITLE. She told me to aim for 1500 clicks, minimum. Tagging is not necessary. That helps only if people are searching for a book with that tag.

To click on my book, go to Amazon & select Books, then type Harrie Rose in the search box. It will give a short list. Choose Therapy: A Novel (white cover, red couch cover) and click on it so the link will open. That's all you have to do. If you want me to click on your title, send me your title & author name & I'll click for you. Please click on my book.

Dixiane Hallaj (dhallaj) | 6 comments Hi
I just clicked on your book. Had a little trouble since I thought the name was "Choose Therapy: a novel" but got it. Looks interesting.
Please return the favor and click on "Born a Refugee" by Dixiane Hallaj.
Thanks.

Dixiane Hallaj (dhallaj) | 6 comments Just go to the Amazon Digital Text Platform or Amazon DTP. I uploaded Born a Refugee with very little trouble. Instructions are fairly straightforward

Penelope Marzec (penelopemarzec) | 3 comments Nanette,

My publishers did all the work for me. I have currently have three publishers. http://www.awe-struck.net/, http://www.newconceptspublishing.com/, and http://www.crescentmoonpress.com/. They are small companies but having an editor is a big plus.

message 8: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Vine | 19 comments Thanks for this, so we shouldn't post an Amazon link to our title, but a link to us as authors and then people need to click that link then click on the books that come up? Is that how it works, or is it okay to click on the link of the specific book? Here's a link which will take you to some of my books http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_nos...


message 9: by Harrie (new)

Harrie Rose (harrierose) | 9 comments I have been going on to Amazon and putting the author's name in the search box, and when the right book title comes up, I've clicked on it. If you search for Harrie Rose, 2 books show up. The top one is Therapy: A Novel by Harrie Rose. You just click on it (and the book's site opens, but you can ignore that.)

I'll try to get to the page where the Harrie Rose book is first pulled up and get the link. If you use a link to the book itself, the click won't count. You have to click on the book before its page opens for the click to count

You have to click on the actual book which appears after you go to Amazon & put the author's name and/or book title in the Search box. Then when a list of books appears, you just click on the one you want to help promote. Thank you. Remember, you're clicking on Harrie Rose's Therapy: A Novel. When the book site opens, you've done it.


message 11: by Dixiane (new)

Dixiane Hallaj (dhallaj) | 6 comments Thanks. You have been clicked--or is it cluck? (Sorry)

Clicking and voting may not be the best way to go. Take a look. http://blog.authonomy.com/2010/09/aut...

Hi Penelope:
I don't know if anyone's mentioned it, but you have a typo in your book's description (Irons in the Fire) - you have "belive" instead of "believe" - might want to fix that. =)

Karl Perera (karl_p) | 7 comments OK so I'm going to join in and click on those titles if you'll all click on mine too.

BTW, it also helps if you "tag" the book's categories - either 2-5 of the ones already there or add a few if you think of some that apply. Helps that book "rise" in those areas for searches, etc. =)

Henry Brown (machinetrooper) I'll go through this list and click everybody's books tonight (gotcha just now, Harrie). Sure would appreciate some clicks on my titles. Sales have really tanked in the last couple months.

I've got 2 titles available in both ebook and paperback: Hell and Gone; and Virtual Pulp.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_...

Thanks!

Henry Brown (machinetrooper) I gotcha, Karen and Pandora.

I'm a little late in wondering this, but do the clicks work from an author page? Or only from a search results page?

Could you put up some tags so we can tag you instead of just clicking?
