I found this book while searching for advice on how to increase sales. Happened upon the author’s website and was lucky enough to find she was promoting her book for free. 🙂 Yeah me!

Ms. Kristen James provides a quick overview of successfully publishing a book (from writing a great work to marketing that work). She doesn’t go deep into details, but she does provide useful tips along the way.
Why I gave this book 5 stars?
With research, most if not all of the information Ms. James provides in this book can be found online with a bit of effort. In fact, I see a lot of authors implementing the strategies with varying degrees of success. On the other hand, I also see quite a few authors sitting on their island of one, wondering why no one knows or cares about their book(s). How to Sell More Kindle eBooks is for folks in the latter category.
Following the techniques provided may not make an author an instance successful, but it does have the potential to make an author’s book(s) more visible to readers.
If you’re an author who’s struggling to get a handful of sales each month, I HIGHLY recommend this book. Perhaps it’ll get you headed in the right direction.
As I mentioned, this book is great for authors just starting out in self-publishing. Authors who’ve spent some time in the field may find the tips are old news, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to have a book of reminders.
As a side note: this book was short, to the point, and well-written. As an author who’s already pressed for time, I appreciated the brevity.
