I don't normally do this, but my book needed exposure. Ever since the re-release day, it has gained very few reviews. And why is that? It is a novella and it would not take too long to read, but people prefer well known authors.
Recently, I attended a course on getting out of the poverty mind set. One thing I learn is that people who think they are entitled to free things have that mind set. In my past, even authors told me that you won't have a high quality book if you expect free service. So I invested. I found an editor I like and she has helped me polish my books. The problem is, many are not giving me a chance! There are no downloads. How many times I have supported authors by purchasing their books? This is why I no longer will read and review my fellow author books unless I really like their books. I feel as if I am on my own. Sometimes it's hard to get all my street team to share things. There are only about one or two who does, but I will be patient.
I also invested in paid advertising. Since the lockdown, the pandemic, the president has put money into my UI benefits which has helped a lot. I thought Amazon advertising would work. Well, as of today, 61 impressions, but what does that mean to me? I spent $1 and no sales. Doesn't sound like its working. I also invested in KDP Rocket.
One last thing I did to gain exposure was enter my cover for the cover of the month. This is where you come in. My cover right now is below the top 100. It needs a big push to make it to the next round. Click on the image and it will take you to the voting page. After you vote for my cover, please share this blog. Thank you.
