BOOK REVIEW:
          In this age of books losing their appeal over other forms of entertainment on one hand and too many authors writing in various genres on the other hand, actually writing a book that interests the readers, publishing it, promoting it and getting it reviewed – all on the way to finally making it a bestseller, is a herculean task. ‘How to Sell Books by the Truckload on Amazon’ is a book that describes best, the actual process of selling the books as an author on Amazon, one of the world’s biggest book sellers. It offers tips for authors that are guaranteed to help the sales of the book. But it is not only for authors. It would surely cater to a wide range of readers.
          New authors would want to read this to get guidelines for launching and promoting their book. Authors with more than a few books to their credit can read this to learn new tricks to better promote not only their latest but also their older books. Book promoters and tour organisers can read this book to understand which points make a book a successful bestseller. Bloggers and reviewers can read this book to finally understand the various ‘promoting pitches’ that request a review. Or better, if you are an aspiring author, read this. It will change your whole perspective on publishing.
          Having been in the blogging line for two years now, we have got review requests in every imaginable way. We have seen the best and the worst, we have seen review requests that made us want to turn away as fast as we could, review requests that interested us in their wording, making us take up the book even if the genre was not our most favourite. On a personal level, ‘How to Sell Books by the Truckload on Amazon’ taught me, as a reviewer, the realities of how big the site actually is and the way it advertises, promotes and lists books. This book is honest. It gives you perfectly usable, feasible ideas of how to exactly increase sales. It is not larger than life, it doesn’t offer unbelievable goals, and it respects everyone involved in this profession.
          ‘How to Sell Books by the Truckload on Amazon’ starts with a detailed, understandable explanation of the actual algorithm the site uses (in non technical, layman terms) so that authors and readers alike could understand a lot of things starting from Amazon’s book recommendations and why some books gain more publicity than the others. Then it moves on to usable tips and tricks for authors on how to make their book’s title sound interesting and how to use the system to their maximum benefit. It includes samples of successful books (Readers Muse is glad to note that one of the example books used in this book has already been successfully reviewed by us – the background of what actually happened was amazing to read!)
          The final section on how to request book reviews and the tips for bloggers that emphasises the need for detailed reviews instead of just saying you loved or hated it, was very enlightening. It gave meaning to our practice of writing proper, detailed reviews. The images and the snippets detailing the ranking process were a valuable addition to the book. The author’s expertise in this field is evident in the tone and phrasing of the book.
          On the whole, ‘How to Sell Books by the Truckload on Amazon’ is a perfect guide – to writing, publishing, promoting and reviewing a book. After all, it is the combined efforts of the authors, publishers, promoters, bloggers, reviewers, readers and every single person who contributed to make the book what it was, that makes any good book a bestseller.
