Thanks, I agree. It was a silly idea, but I was surprised to see the best selling sticker from Amazon sticker this morning,

Writers' Cafe / Question about advertising
« on: October 11, 2017, 07:03:15 AM »
Because of a recent Bookbub international promotion, my book, "Flight of the Crow" is the #1 bestselling private detective mystery in Australia. Can I use that in my future advertising and do I have to say "In Australia?"

If I get a book bub international promotion, do I lower the price to .99 in the United states of do I have to lower it in each of the other countries?

I thought something similar. Any way, I'll post how it goes on Sunday. (fingers crossed)

My book is amazon only as far as sales go, so it will be interesting how much that effects my sales. I've heard that Kobo is big in Canada. One observation that I think is odd. My book was accepted on Aug 24 for the International promotion. Before that time I had very few sales and pages read in Canada. Since then, I've been getting sales and pages read almost every day. Anyone have an idea why?

What kind of results can I expect for a Bookbub promo, but only in the UK, Canada, Australia and India?

They won't show up until something mysteries happens in your neighborhood, and it just so happens to match up with what you were searching on.

Thanks, that's what I thought.

Writers' Cafe / Questions about verified purchases.
« on: July 14, 2017, 05:25:09 PM »
I know that a review marked "Verified purchase" mean the reviewers bought the book from Amazon, but what does it say if the reviewer read the book through Kindle unlimited or the lending library?

Writers' Cafe / Promoting new release.

I know this has probably been covered before, but I can't find the answer in the archives. I just released a new book; "Instincts of the Crow" and it seems like most of the larger promotion sites want a minimum number of reviews. Does anyone have a list that will promote just published books with zero reviews?

I recently uploaded new covers for my three books and they show up on Amazon, but on my sig line on Kboards, its still the old covers. How can I change that?

When I published my third book, I got out of the red, although my wife does my covers and I do the formatting. My only expenses are editing and promotions. My fourth book should be out this weekend, so I hope it continues.

Sorry, you need to click on the old covers to see the new covers.

The thumbnails were what I was trying to make clearer. The old covers didn't translate to thumbnails very well.

Writers' Cafe / My new books covers

I've had a few comments that the covers on my three published books look like a cozy mystery novel or young adult instead of a private detective novel, so I changed them. Let me know if the covers now look like hard-boiled mysteries.

Writers' Cafe / Changing bookcover questions
« on: June 15, 2017, 04:06:59 PM »
Because of suggestions from this group and other people I've spoken to, I going to change my current three book covers, and another that will be released shortly to show a more serious private eye novel. The first cover is done, should I release now or wait until they all finished?
