How do you stand out in the Kindle age?
Word of mouth is still as important in the age of eBooks as it was before—maybe even more so. The great thing about eBooks and self-publishing is that it has expanded the market and brought more books to readers. The downside of that is that, as an author, you have way more competition vying for reader’s attention. Getting the word out about your book is as important as writing and editing it.
Good covers are also essential. Not only do they need to stand out and make a statement when looking at the cover in full size, but also as a thumbnail picture on e-retail sites such as Amazon. One of the reasons I decided to have a custom cover made for my first self-published novel is because I know how important it is when it comes to drawing attention to the book. Anything that can make you and your book stand out in a good way is a plus.

thirty, all of that changed. After getting frustrated with the direction a
television show was taking two of its characters, Sherri decided to try her
hand at writing an alternate ending, and give the characters their happily ever
after. By the time the story finished, it was one of the top ten read stories
on the site, and her readers were encouraging her to write more.
years later, Sherri is the author of eight full-length novels, and two short
stories. Writing has become a creative outlet that allows her to explore a wide
range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters through all the
