Writers' Cafe / Any way to tell which books are DRM free?
« on: September 18, 2012, 01:26:35 pm »
Is there any way on Amazon to tell which books are DRM free?

One of my readers asked if any of the books could be read on Nook, and I know the DRM locked ones cannot, but if there is a way to tell which books are DRM-free, I could explain to them that they can get those books and convert them to a Nook-friendly format.

Thanks in advance!

Fire Talk / Bluetooth Accessories
« on: September 17, 2012, 04:18:37 pm »
So, as much as I like having my Kindle Fire HD hooked up to my TV, and I really don't mind the cable from the TV to the couch, but I would prefer a Bluetooth remote or mouse or something, to be able to play and pause movies that I am watching.

Anyone have any ideas as to what devices will work for this?


Writers' Cafe / Also-boughts even more important now!

So, I just got my Kindle Fire HD... when you see a book you're reading on the home carousel, below the book is shows, you guessed it, the also-boughts for that book...

Thank you Amazon for more exposure!

Writers' Cafe / - Yet Another Free eBooks Website
« on: September 06, 2012, 09:12:44 am »
Hey Authors (and Readers who lurk in the Writers Cafe)...

We have launched our new website ...

We are happy to feature your free ebooks on our website! Just use the free ebook submission form by following the "Authors" link in the navigation.

We also offer a "Book of the Day" option, which is currently only $10/day (updated Oct 2012). You will be featured in your own post (instead of with 5-9 other ebooks), and you will be mentioned in every other post that day! Details are on our "Authors" page.

Obviously we won't have the effect that POI and ENT would have for your site, but we are working hard to expand our readership to become one of the top free ebooks website.

Thanks for your time!


Writers' Cafe / Where To Advertise/Notify for Bargain Book (not free)
« on: August 24, 2012, 05:47:21 pm »
So, my book is going to be one of the 4 bargain books one day next week on ENT. I have seen really good results for most of the books there.

I want to capitalize on this opportunity, and drive as much traffic as I can.

Where are some good places to advertise such bargains?

And who can I notify that will share the bargain?

Thanks for any tips!

Writers' Cafe / Best Way to Report a Series of Sock Puppet Reviews?
« on: August 13, 2012, 01:14:51 pm »
So, someone (probably a competitor), is having a series of friends (or sock puppets) give my book 1 star reviews.

I started looking through the other books these people have either 1-starred or 5-starred, and I checked the books of other reviewers who have had similar ratings on the same books as these people. It is definitely a pattern, and many of the same exact books appear in each of the review profiles of these sock puppet reviewers.

What is the best way to contact about this?

I have another 1-star review, a 2-star review, and those I am fine with. The people obviously didn't like my book or how I approached it. I can accept that.

It's when it is an obvious attack that it frustrates me.

So, any tips on the best way to contact Amazon regarding this matter?

Thanks a ton!

Writers' Cafe / How To View Kindle File Before Publishing
« on: May 27, 2012, 11:49:58 pm »
So, I want to use a website to create a validated epub file.

I want to upload this into KDP.

Is there a way to see how it is converted from within KDP, and download the book to my ereader device, to check that the formatting is all good before going live?

Writers' Cafe / My First Book Is Live!!!
« on: March 26, 2012, 10:39:28 pm »
Well, my first book is live!  I am quite excited!  I have even sold one copy already! (I just bought it!)

Though, this moron here forgot a word in his long title.  I'm soooooo glad that I am a newbie author no one even knows or is expecting.  That would be extremely embarrassing with a rabid fan base waiting for my next book, and I publish it with the title missing a word.

Note to self for future books: Double, triple, and quadruple-check everything before hitting publish.

Writers' Cafe / How long does "In Review" status REALLY take?
« on: March 26, 2012, 03:30:25 pm »
I uploaded my first book, and for some (unknown) reason I thought it would go live instantly.  Silly me.

KDP said 12 hours... I was just curious about the experiences any of you have had.  Does it take less time?  More time?

12 hours for me is 3:00am my time... since I have work tomorrow, I probably can't stay up refreshing the KDP backend.

Thanks a ton!

Writers' Cafe / How Long Do Price Changes Take?
« on: March 26, 2012, 11:56:47 am »
How long does a price change take when doing it through the KDP interface?

I will be uploading my first book today (finally!) and I want to price it at $0.99 for the launch.

I am planning on going free w/ Select in 3 weeks, and I want to make sure it's priced at $2.99 before I go free, so I just want to make sure that I change it to $2.99 in enough time.

So, how much time is enough time to make sure it clicks over to the new price before I need it to?

Thanks so much, and wish me luck on the upload process!
