When it comes to our books, #Amazon is good for something after all! @NonnieJules @RRBC_Org @RRBC_RWISA @Tweets4RWISA @4WillsPub @4WP11 #promotion
Most of the time, many of us are annoyed with Amazon for some good reason or another. I know that most days, I would personally like to pull the plug on the entire operation. If only I had the know-how.
But, there are those times when we find out that Amazon is actually good for something!
For those of you who don’t believe that Amazon is working for you and your books, take a look at the proof below:
- I frequently get notices of authors’ books in my email. I usually send the author a screenshot of said email just to make their day, encourage them, and to also let them know that placing their book on Amazon was a good idea after all. For instance, just the other day I was excited to share the screenshot below with two of my favorite authors…
Now, back to Amazon. Not only did they send these recommendations to me in email without my asking, they demanded that I READ NOW! (Notice the little black box above the book covers). That demand was a little scary, so, trust that I will be reading MORE of their books soon! (You don’t need to come after me, Mr. Amazon.)
- When I’m browsing Amazon, they are always suggesting books of other authors that I’ve never heard of, that I might like to read. And because I love books and I love to read, a lot of the time I walk away with more books than I’ll ever have time to read. Still, I purchase!
But, with all those things in play, nothing comes close to what I received in my email box today from a wonderful reader:
Oh, Mr. Amazon, you’re trying hard to change my opinion of you, aren’t you? Yes, you are!
Friends, not only did Ms. Alexa (who by the way, I feel strongly has something going on with Mr. Amazon, but, I digress) mention the full title of my book, she also gave the author’s name! My name! And she stated it all with such clarity, so that the person listening would have no problem finding the book! Did you hear her?
So, there you have it – those times when Amazon is good for something! And thank you so much to the reader who shared this with me. You made my day! And nice socks!
How many of you have ever had this kind of wonderful experience (aka free promotion) with Mr. Amazon and Ms. Alexa? Please share below. We’d love to hear all about it!
In the event that you didn’t hear Ms. Alexa clearly, she suggested that you run out and pick up your own copy of this book of highly sought-after quotes… which includes 20 quotes on writing!
“Write to perfection or don’t bother writing at all.”
