So I recently came across this post while I was browsing through my Facebook, and thought whoever was thinking about writing their own book should know this. Can’t keep all the information to myself, now can I?
Authors are not rich. In fact, most make less than $10,000 a year. Being an author is a SMALL BUSINESS. If there are fifty reviews, Amazon lists a book in its newsletter and other promotions (also boughts). Reviews are the easiest way to say “thank you” to an author and tell their publisher to produce more books. Reviews can be short: “I Liked It”. It’s the number of reviews that matters the most.
