Marketing Loft [Public] / Re: Now I know why I will never get a BookBub
« Last post by Simon Haynes on May 07, 2021, 03:35:49 AM »
Over the past few months I've had four rejections in a row, four acceptances in a row.

It's not so much about your book, rather it's related to what they've already lined up.  If they have a load of epic fantasy books and someone offers something a little different it has a much higher chance.

My acceptances were scifi comedy, light scifi adventure, gaslamp fantasy and mil scifi (only one of them in KU)

I racked up 60 rejections before I got an acceptance, so keep applying, folks!
I've lost count. It must be 30 or 40 at least.
My last acceptance was in February 2020. Since then, I've racked up 70 rejections.

 :HB  :dizzy  :shrug

I just don't have that kind of devotion to getting one.

I completely gave up after about a dozen.

With all the talk of Indies only getting Intl ones, I don't see the point of even bothering.

But good luck to those of you who never give up.  :tap

I haven't had many rejections, maybe 4 or 5, because I don't submit often. But all I've gotten this year is international deals and they're not worth much. I'm putting more money into GoogleAds. I did try some FB ads, but the people left on there are crazy political. They somehow managed to put a political spin on a sci fi book (it's not even a controversial subject). I stopped the ads. Too many idiots were posting messages.

Publisher's Office [Public] / KDP Print expands to Australia

Just got an email from Amazon:



We’re excited to announce paperback printing will begin launching in Australia on May 19, 2021. This will enable faster delivery of your book to you and your readers.


For me this is awesome news.  I can finally advertise my paperbacks here on AMS with decent-ish prices.


(They also say that we need to go in and set the Aussie price for all paperbacks, just like we did when then added Canada)

I used to be a little bit more regular about it. Now it's just when people are talking about it a lot here and I can pretend I'm doing work.

It literally takes me five minutes per month. I have five series and submit the first in each every four weeks, like clockwork. I'm hoping they'll give me a featured deal eventually if only so I'll stop submitting  grint

I think I've got over a hundred. You may join but you are still a prawn, no offense. We all have to start somewhere.
