Instead of a Hump Day Kick Start today, I am posting a link to writer David Gaughran’s blog Let’s Get Digital. He outlines one author’s ongoing rank-stripping issue by Amazon. It’s a serious problem for innocent authors following the rules and it’s costing time, ranks, sales and marketing dollars. Ultimately, it’s just another punishment to authors trying to get any type of visibility in Amazon’s crowded marketplace using legitimate marketing techniques. It’s an outrageous abuse by Amazon’s KDP program—stripping ranks, deleting reviews, jacking with but buttons, burying discoverability in favor for Select authors, and more!
This is a must read!
We need to make a lot of noise over this. We must put on pressure for viable change. Spread the word and let Amazon know how you feel.

This week it’s all about bringing authors to readers. Goodkindles features new free and cheap books available for Kindles everyday. Not only is it a website, but readers can signup for a daily newsletter showcasing those books. Plus, readers can also follow Goodkindles via Twitter and Facebook to learn about new books and giveaways. Another nice thing about this website, authors can sign up their books even if they are not free or bargain-bin priced. And the prices to list books range from $8-$20. Wow!
Give it a look-see, will ya.

Let’s say you’ve finished your book, edited the dickens out of it, put it up for sale, and now want to list it for free.
How do you make the most of your free book? How do you get the word out there that it’s even available? Well, wonder no more! A friend of mine sent this link to me and I HAD to share it with you. I think you will find it to be a wealth of information!
