Ever feel, like me, that your book is outstanding, the reviews have been great, people seem to love it, but sales are disappointing? I believe that many small press authors share that same sinking feeling. Well now Amazon has launched a new program to increase visibility for those hidden gems.
From Amazon: "Even great books can be overlooked. Amazon customers raved over “Legacy,” a self-published novel by 16-year-old Cayla Kluver, with customer review titles such as “loved it, loved it,” “rich lyrical tapestry and story” and “breathtaking in scope and execution!” Despite winning several prizes from literary groups and accolades like this from readers, Kluver’s debut novel achieved only modest sales. Amazon.com, Inc. today announced a new program, AmazonEncore,” to help readers discover exceptional books from emerging authors, such as the program’s first book, “Legacy.”"
