How a Ventura author became an Amazon bestseller is the topic for April IWOSC/SPAWN Ventura County meeting
What does it take to become an Amazon bestseller, continually selling books week after week? Venturan Connie Hood released her book “Islands of Deception” in January and worked at marketing it until she climbed the bestseller list at Amazon and continues to sell. Ms. Hood will discuss the steps she took, what worked, what didn’t, what guides she used, and explain how indie authors can do the same. The monthly IWOSC/SPAWN meeting takes place April 18 at 6:30 pm in the Newbury Park Library.
“It’s hard work, several hours a day,” said Ms. Hood. “I talked to everyone I could meet who work in publishing, found a few great books, and then set off to market my book. But all the time and effort it was worth it to watch the title climb up the sales charts and then gain the Amazon Bestseller designation.”
Ms. Hood will review:
“It’s important to promote local success stories,” said Kathleen Kaiser, president of the Small Publishers, Artists & Writers Network (SPAWN) and the monthly meeting organizer. “I’ve watch Connie grow her sales, ask smart questions, and put in the hours required to succeed. Now she is willing to show others how she did it and what things to avoid doing. And she is still working the system to drive more sales.”
