Featured Quotes

“Amazon is a market, right? There are people there every day searching for stuff. They have different pain points, they have different ways of describing the book they’re looking for. That is a preexisting market. What I want to do is I want to know what that market really wants. What is it that they’re typing into Amazon? What is it that they’re searching for? What is it they’re looking for and how do they describe it? When I know that and I’m also able to see that there are not a lot of competition out there for whatever that is, that gives me an opportunity to fill that need of that market.”

“At the end of my book, I kind of humanize myself. I will put in there something about me as a person so as to remind people that they’re not just reading a book, a dead product, they’re reading something that a real living, feeling person wrote. Then I explicitly ask for a review. I said, “Hey, it would mean the world to me to find out what you thought about this book. I’m a writer. I want to write more. Let’s make the next book even better.””
