The Trust of the Editing World
I have been editing multiple manuscripts since this business began. Our sister website (mynarrationstation.com) is already in place, as we get our main website calibrated (marketingindieauthors.com). Lorri Heneveld (my primary audiobook narrator) and I have recently discovered something frightening!
Editing of manuscripts is pitiful! I am not talking about just little grammatical errors like even I occasionally make; we are finding that almost all of the manuscripts we have worked on have had massive amounts of grammatical errors. This is understandable because these books are freshly-written, and it’s the first time they’ve been reviewed by an editor— right?— wrong!

Amazon is the Best?
Yes, most of the blogs focus on Amazon, but almost all of the information has a general relation to other platforms.

What You Should Know About Illegal Amazon Marketing
I received a disturbing email from an author that claimed my analysis of the Kboards article was inaccurate because Amazon does not allow advertisement on third-party platforms. I am here to tell you she is 100% wrong and kboards is 100% acceptable to use for advertising. I will give you a link at the bottom to add assurance.
Amazon recently released information that particular third-party websites were considered illegal by their terms. Why is this? Well, a few websites required that you write a set amount of reviews before enabling the reviewer access to all of the tools on the website. Amazon is not against ads on other websites, nor are they against the promotion of your book. But they do have a problem that they insist be addressed. They fear that customers will be swayed to write a positive review based solely on website’s forcefully nature to do so or websites inept nature of encouraging and guaranteeing some form of positive reviews. The evidence overwhelmingly suggests that these type of platforms give much higher ratings to books than the average consumer would give.

READERS Average Age and Male or Female Targeting in Relation to Ebooks
We have an extremely large database of information that looks into websites, their potential, statistics, and we even go so far as to see what others have written.
