(And no, she has no idea who I am; we're aren't friends, acquaintances, Twitter-followers, frenemies, nothing. I'm just a big fan.)
I'm not interested in having a mailing list right now, but for me, the keyword section of the book was worth the whole price.
Following the author's strategies and directions as best I could, I changed the keywords and the book description on my non-fiction book. (I didn't really know what I was doing, but I gave it my best shot.) I also discovered that my book title was all wrong as far as keywords go, but too late to change that now.
The very next day, my book was suddenly #27 in one category and in the top 800 in the other 2 categories.
(Previously, it had been in the top 1700 or top 4000.)
This result was just based on the author's advice alone, without downloading any of the software recommended in the book.
I'd like to do this for my novels now, which is maybe a bit more complicated than for non-fiction, but I see that it's worth it.
Also, this book gives you excellent direction on choosing titles for any future books.
Thanks a ton, Mr. Stephenson!
Example: I had been trying to accomplish something for close to two months, Nick had a suggestion, I tried it and within 48 hours, it was done...unbelievable!!
Then there's his bonus section; thank you for your insight into KDP vs KDP Select...so helpful.
With Nick's suggestions I have revamped the description of the book I'm marketing (don't worry Nick, we are not in the same category :)) changed and added keywords and I am looking forward to seeing where that takes us.
Thanks alot Nick for sharing your experiences with other self published authors, this book is a gem!!
And I got another great idea off Nick, albeit not in the book but from his "Wanted" Amazon page...author interview!! Brilliant idea...I'm going to use that idea too.
And I'm subscribing to your blog!

Packed with information, hints, tips and real life examples there is plenty to dwell on and take in. Time is tight for all of us. Nick hasn't padded out this book just to make you feel you’re getting value for money – never mind the quality, feel the width syndrome, but he gets over the nub of each topic with links for further reading where necessary.
This is a great resource, written in a very open and honest manner – qualities much to be admired. He has, I think, discovered the secret of expanding available time, (which he doesn’t share) either that or he hardly ever sleeps! The upshot is we, his readers, have benefited hugely from his efforts. Although assessing and reworking my own approach to marketing my books on Amazon will take some time/effort as a result, at least I know I’m not wasting my energy, money and resources.
Thanks Nick for putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboard: an invaluable addition to my collection of self-help books.
This is a good book on its subject and expertly covers two sides of the Amazon equation: getting your listing right, including choosing you categories, keywords and the all important title, subtitle and description. However it also touches on the second part of the equation the blog and mailing list, building a sympathetic following and loyal readership.
I learnt a lot from this book, and would recommend it to other self-published authors, although I would add some of the best material is on Nick's website and blog. There are lots of links to extra reading and sign-ups which makes this book very good value for money.
The only downside is that the book sells two pieces of software Kindle Spy and Kindle Samurai, I felt these useful tools were introduced too early, and it is worth spending some time researching Amazon categories the 'hard way' i.e. by hand searching them before using this automation.
I recommend, but also check out the website.
