If you think you are going to find a source manual on 'How to write a Book & sell it in Amazon" - because that's the title and that's what we should expect - then you will be duped. Not misled - duped.

This entire book is about Jenny Loveless' fixation with the Law of Attraction (LOA) and how it changed her life, with the odd bit about publishing on Amazon to keep her from completely misrepresenting the contents of the book.

Here is a telling snippet about what is supposed to be about publishing on Amazon:

"In this book I vow to do my best to show you how to identify when God or the Universe is talking to you and how to understand what it is He is trying to convey"

She is applying this to Kindle Direct Publishing...If you are a publishing success it is because you 'believed'; if not you aren't ridding yourself of the negativity that stops your book being bought.

So' "if you only sell one book in a month, be grateful for that sale. In addition, know that with this attitude, you will one day have the things you want and then some"

This book is a complete travesty of its title and supposed subject matter. Do not waste a penny of your money on it.
I will be formally complaining to Amazon about this title, as it does huge repetitional damage to the brand having this drivel being associated with it.

If I could award it no stars I would.

POSTSCRIPT
Emailed Jeff Bezos about this book. Got a full refund as a good will gesture. The refund amount wasn't the issue it was being sold this book under a grossly misleading title that mattered.

This is a very misleading title. Most of the book is about a religious concept - the Law of Attraction. There is almost nothing in the book about selling on Kindle that isn't better explained by the Kindle help pages themselves. Not a useful buy at all.

Oh how I wish I had read this book a year ago. I’ve been pounding away at this challenging business of writing, formatting, and publishing books on Amazon, all without proper direction, especially in the area of marketing. Like so many authors, I have found that it is the marketing of books that is tricky. Creating them is the easy part.

My husband and I have read over 80 books on the subject of writing and marketing books, particularly e-books, and I can say, from our research, that this book contains more useful information than all the other books put together. The author has a first-hand grasp of how the algorithms work and reveals many tricks of the trade to advance a book up the ladder in its category. Keywords, titles, covers, and reviews are just a few of the critical points that are covered here, but they are also covered in a way that gets results. I have used much of this information and found it to be absolutely spot-on. I now have a guide to help me through the maze of information on the subject of book publishing.

I had a need and the Law of Attraction filled it with this book. I’m glad I found it; you will be too!

Great book I have learned so much. This book has two parts.The first is all about the Law Of Attraction. It's a very detailed explanation on it and gives many great tips on how to use it correctly. I think that I will benefit greatly from what I have learned and it has given me motivation to be more positive in my thinking.

Some reviewers who have left negative reviews must not have gotten to the second part of the book. The second part of the book is filled with lots useful information on how to use KDP, keywords, titles, promoting, and how to have a successful free promotion in order to get your book more visible. It goes over many tips and tricks that I didn't know of before and they have worked well for me so far. This is a very detailed book of both how to sell more books and the Law of Attraction. Using both these subjects together is bound to bring results. Great Book!

Writing a review for this book is actually difficult. When starting to read this book I wondered what the hell the author was on. She employed the topic of the book's title as though it was not the intention of the book, but instead something else involved with motivation was the focus of the book.

Fair enough, I did not like this book due to the previous reason. However, some of the information in the book was helpful, but not for the reason the book was written.In my opinion, this book was not worth the money and I also felt tricked because the cover and description did not match everything in the book.

Before I started reading, I wondered how the Law of Attraction applied to self-publishing. In a nutshell, I’d say it’s about inspiration and motivation. So you get two books in one. Part one gets you in the right mindset, and helps in setting goals so you can move on to part two and put all the great publishing tips to good use. Love it! This is a book I’ll be referring to again and again.

For new authors and those with a fair amount of experience, you'll find the 2nd section of this book to be very useful when starting out on the self-publishing road. The first part is to do with the Laws of Attraction, so if you'd like to learn about that then you can as well. Very much two books in one. Interesting concept.

If you are a self-published author who feels as if you are spinning your wheels much of the time, this book is for you. Self-publishing is a rough, time consuming road which produces little reward much of the time. Jenny Loveless provides practical, useful advice worth any self-published author’s time.
