Like most writers, the passion is in writing and storytelling. The downside is if you’re trying to sell books you not only have to advertise but learn about sale algorithms. I’ve spent the entire day learning (I do enjoy learning), changing keywords and categories in order to be the most transparent with what is the content in my books. Yes, they’re poetry but there are so many categories in poetry. Researching keywords took the longest but I got my keywords. I also took an ad out on Amazon (first time) for my book Inspire Me: Perception. I’ll check back in a month (that’s when the ad ends) and let you know how that went. In the meantime, be safe, show love, and many blessings.
