"Tags, likes and discussions help greatly. As do a reasonable number of good reviews (at least 6). Sales seem to be the prime driver though - a steady stream more effective than a clump. "

Garry Edward Lewis replied to Matt T. Schott's discussion 'Amazon rankings' in the group Fantasy, Horror & Science Fiction Writers
"But to further answer your question, yes sales of any size will raise your rankings for a period of time. Then when your sales slow down your rankings fall again to mid level. Its a see saw effect. Up and down, up and down."

Constructed Criticism

Constructed Criticism

The first time I sent my Sci-Fi manuscript to get a seven page critique, ten years ago, I was floored and angry.  The things said about my baby.  Through a Writer’s Digest magazine ad I found Jane Rafel, editor.  I chose her because she lived close by at…

The Steps I took To publish my award winning book online

Posted on July 6, 2011 at 7:03pm 0 Comments

It took me 15 years to create, produce and finally give birth to my scifi book, Lord Skyler and The Earth Defense Force.  In 2007 I started looking into online publishing.  I tried the traditional route and got no reaction except no thanks.  I found out I needed a totally finished product before I could publish my book tradtionally or online.  So I decided to have my book professionally edited at this time.

Creating a Scifi Universe

Posted on July 3, 2011 at 2:34pm 0 Comments

I was recently asked how I could keep a whole made up Universe inside my head.  First mistake was assuming thats where my brain was.  It can be eaiser than it sounds if you know how to use your God like powers.

Its like the saying, "If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?"  When creating a scifi universe it does make a sound.  As a matter of fact just before the bark hits the grass, the grass changes to a bright, blinding, holy white…

Welcome to Authors.com Matt. :) Enjoy yourself! Great to have you here. Please tell us all about what you write.

Nice to meet you. :) Welcome aboard, Matt. I hope you like it here! I look forward to hearing all about your writing.

Kay is just fine, Matt. No need for the Elizabeth. Thanks for asking! :)

Congrats on your book. How have you found Lulu as a self-publishing platform? You're the first person I'm come across that's actually used it instead of talking about getting around to it. :) I'd love to hear more on that.

I liked lulu because you can set up an account without money. Lulu has recomended a number of people to use, editors, artist, marketers and other elements of the writing buisness or you can use someone else outside of lulu to work with.
The one bad thing was there was no advice given. You could hire a mentor but I was hopeing for just a basic walk through on how a book is made.
I did the 3 steps forward one step back method of learning. Im at the stage of lerning how to do a press release and self marketing. I rather have an agent. 25 years as an electrcian has shown me the difference between a home owner and a pro. I need a pro.

Matt, have you seen the video here on how to publish a book on Lulu.com? That might help.
