How to Navigate Amazon and Launch Your Book

Are You An Author Ready to Release

Your Book But Have No Idea How?

It's been a dream of mine since I was a little girl watching my mother get lost in a book, to one day write and publish a book that would captivate people's attention like books did her's. As a prolific journalist, I knew I could write a book, I just didn't know what book it would be.

Although I wrote a book in 1996, it was a book of short ideas and suggestions that a friend asked me to write for women as a companion book he wrote for men. It did not feel like THE book.

Sweet Grace

In 2013 after going on an amazing weight loss journey, it was as if God tapped me on the shoulder and said, "Now is the time. It's time to write THE book." And He showed me the book would be the story of my weight loss journey. I saw it laid out in the heavens—beginning, middle, end, inciting incident, anti-climax, climax, purpose, audience.

After a slow start, I began in earnest around the end of March. By June 1, the bulk of Sweet Grace: How I Lost 250 Pounds and Stopped Trying to Earn God's Favor was written. Then came cutting, editing, proofreading, formatting, cover, back cover and all the things that go together to make a book.

Amazon Process

Once it was on the way to the printer, I began to realize, I have no idea how to put this on Amazon. And I have no idea after it is on Amazon of how to get it noticed out of the millions of titles there.

Thus, began my process of discovery. In this short informational white paper, I share with you how to get your book on Amazon without any cost, how to launch it, the importance of reviews, how to promote and publicize and strategies to get it to top of your niche categories.

Information For Every Author

I've compiled all the information I wanted to know and couldn't find readily available in one place. This paper contains the basics of what you need to know to get your book to the masses, complete with websites and emails you may need.

Formatting your book, getting a professional cover, publicity, etc., will be cost items. However, getting the book on Amazon is no cost to you. Even if you've already published a book, this will be a valuable resource. And I'll bet there are a few resources here you haven't tapped into yet.
