Erica Verrillo presents Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity: Rising in the Ranks: Amazon Ranking Revealed posted at Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity, saying, “Amazon’s ranking system has been the source of much speculation over the years. The ranking is not simply based on the number of books sold by the day (or hour), but also takes into account how your book fares against other books in the same category, which Amazon calculates based on a secret algorithm which only clairvoyants, psychics, and 33rd degree Masons have access to. In this article, I show you exactly how many books you need to sell to make it onto Amazon’s bestseller list.”
Arthur Burlo presents Five Ways To Deal With Rejection And Use It To Achieve Your Goals posted at The Money Earning Sites Central, saying, “The subject is rejection, but rather than focusing on dealing with this unpleasant experience, it is all about transforming it into a powerful weapon to improve writing style and achieve the success every book author desires. Thanks for giving me an opportunity to share this.”
