Whether reading her books, listening to her podcast, and subscribing to her newsletter, it’s hard to not feel better about yourself, your path, and life in general.

Book Description

Attention Authors:

Are you selling as many books as you’d like?

If not, it might be because people aren’t finding you. One way to increase your exposure on Amazon’s search engine is through keywords.

Are you ready for your book launch day?

One key to getting on the Amazon bestseller’s list is to sell as many books as possible in one day. And when you choose your categories wisely, you will have less competition and more success on launch day.

Learn how to optimize your books on Amazon and Kindle using categories, tags and more. I will take you step-by-step through the process using screenshots to show you exactly what to do. I have been publishing books since 2008 and wish I would have known this information at that time. I now want to share all the tips and tricks that I have learned with you to decrease your learning curve.

My Rating

Although some of the tips in this book are things I already knew about, I did find a few tricks I hadn’t considered for optimizing my eBooks. I definitely recommend this book to new authors and more seasoned authors who want a refresher. I give it four of five stars.
