Hi! Well, today, I just want to talk about where I want to go next with this channel and with what I’m doing in general.
In 2011, I blogged repeatedly about my concerns about Amazon. I made an analogy that people quite likely
thought was ridiculous was insane was inappropriate/offensive never gave any credence to , assuming they gave a damn what I had to say.
But some authors flocked to the Internet giant. And others stayed staunchly indie, even though we would not get whatever
bribe special treatment incentive we might get by being Amazon-exclusive.
Hi, I hope to get back to doing book reviews at some point, because I can’t do them right now because I’m reading so many books as a Hammett Award screener that—and I can’t talk about any of them, of course—that it’s very hard for me to get to any other books, but I’m managing somehow to do that. But I will eventually get to that. What I would like to do right now actually is talk about what your needs are, because I often think about what it is that indie authors might want to know, what people who are interested in self-publishing might want to know. But I have no idea if what I’m saying is connecting. I mean, or if my assumptions are correct.
Hi, everyone! 🙂
One of the things I want to talk about is building a reader fan base. And I think the best way to do that is find a way online to create a community of fans, and doing that takes more than simply adjusting a few keywords or finding categories on Amazon. It takes a lot more than that. And that’s the danger of relying on Amazon alone or simply keywords and things like that alone. You don’t know who you’re getting or what you’re getting.
