IT’S ALMOST GUARANTEED – that something will go wrong at some point during your author career. It’s pretty inevitable.
And especially with Amazon – where they have an army of bot soldiers on the prowl for copyright theft and fake reviews – the impact can be pretty substantial. And it can also be pretty terrifying if it’s the first time this has ever happened to you.
(NB: it’s happened to me LOTS of times… now it’s more of an annoyance than a world-ending crisis, but still…)
Case in point – our charity boxed set, Galaxia, was randomly pulled from the shelves on Amazon for seemingly no reason – right in the middle of a promo campaign.
So in this video, I’ll talk about what we did about it, and what we’re going to do next to make up for 6 days of lost sales. So, if this (or anything similar happens to you), you’ll know you’re not alone!
Oh, and tell me in the comments – has Amazon (or any of the other stores) ever done anything totally arbitrary to your books? This might be removing them completely, un-indexing them so they don’t show up, stripping your reviews / ranks, or sending you scary emails? If so, let me know in the comments!
WANT SOME FREE TRAINING?
I’m supporting a charity promo right now and offering some detailed training on how to run successful boxed-set launches.
Normally this training would be $97, but I’m giving it away for free for anyone who supports Well Aware (a clean-water charity) by purchasing a copy of our new sci-fi boxed set, Galaxia.
We’ve already cleared well over 2,500+ copies during pre-launch and I’d love to show you how we did it.
Just buy a copy for 99c, support a great charity, and I’ll send you the training during the last week of September.
Click below to get the boxed set and receive the free training:
^^ I’ll email you with a link on September 17th (when the book officially releases) where you can enter a password and sign up for the training. The password will be hidden in the book, which you’ll get delivered to your e-reader on that date. So grab it on pre-order while it’s only 99c and I’ll do the rest!
Not on the email list? Sign up here to make sure you’re notified when the training link is released (mid September)
And please leave a comment!
