5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for authors and publishers, 7 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Let's Get Visible: How To Get Noticed And Sell More Books (Let's Get Publishing Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
Anyone who has published an eBook will understand the problem of visibility. You are going to have hundreds of thousands of competitors, and only a handful will come to the top of buyers' searches.

My rationale for buying this was simple; it appeared on my Amazon page while I was looking for something else. The simple fact that its author was able to put it there is a testament to his skill, and I bought it without hesitation.

Amazon is famously tight lipped about the algorithms that drive sales on its website, and there are many myths about their methods. This book clearly and simply explains how Amazon works, and how they decide whose work is promoted. Using data thrown up by a dedicated group of bloggers who have patiently tested the system with their own work, David Gaughran has distilled their findings into a simple methodology.

Reading it will help you avoid the mistakes that many self-published authors (this one included) have made. Without a good grasp of eBook visibility, you are going to struggle.

This book is concise, well-written, and avoids the unnecessary repetion and hyperbole which so often spoils `how to' guides.

It's essential reading for both self-published authors, and publishers. Easily the best book of its kind that I've come across.
