Never would have believed that the marketing of the books was this difficult. I thought writing them was, but now I have to rethink that thought.
So I have been studying the sales on B&N, and they are remarkable compared to the other sites. Maybe I have focused too hard on that area. I am now updating several versions of these books in hopes of breaking through the Smashwords Meatgrinder, and maybe I have actually figured out what they are looking for.
Been reading the Kindle boards, and I have to admit I am very confused about several of the tips and tricks. Tagging, for one seems to be above my level.
Today, however, I am going to dive in head first, and see if I can figure it out.
I have gotten some great advice from a well known author in my genre, and her words of wisdom are incredible. I am going to look into using CreateSpace for Print On Demand, and maybe that will help my other sales.
If anybody has any suggestions or comments, please please please send them my way!
Thanks to all!
