On the threshold of something new?
I wrote a book called Threshold Shift and sent it out into the wild of Amazon Kindle. What I realised was that the wild is a dangerous place where my book is unlikely to find sustenance among so many others. Why, it is unlikely to even be noticed among all the competing predators out there.
What it needs is that secret something to get noticed. But what is that secret something I ask you? Is it pay per click advertising? Kindle select? A news story? A poster in the local library? A free offer? A review in a big sf magazine? A posting on hundreds of forums?
I don't know yet. I definitely want to find out. But I'll start with a few sales and hopefully a few reviews, and take it from there.
