Amazon Recommends . . . JIMMY by William Malmborg



Like everyone else out there who has ever shopped on Amazon I get the email recommendation for products, ones that use my shopping history as a guide toward what they think I might like, thus the products usually fall into three categories: books, DVDS, and sex toys.  Today’s email was books and what do you know, they recommended me my own novel.  Never had this happen before, nor have I heard of any other author getting their own book recommended to them.  It is somewhat funny.  It’s also really exciting because I’ve heard from other authors that once you get on Amazon’s recommended email lists sales usually skyrocket.  Fingers crossed on that.  August and September of 2012 were my two worst months ever when it comes to sales.  Things were so bad during that time that I actually didn’t make enough to even pay my rent, which is usually is no problem, and ended up maxing out my credit cards so I could buy food and gas.  So, hopefully this, and the fact that NIKKI’S SECRET will be out soon, will turn things around once again.  usually fall into three categories: books, DVDS, and sex toys.  Today’s email was books and what do you know, they recommended me my own novel.  Never had this happen before, nor have I heard of any other author getting their own book recommended to them.  It is somewhat funny.  It’s also really exciting because I’ve heard from other authors that once you get on Amazon’s recommended email lists sales usually skyrocket.  Fingers crossed on that.  August and September of 2012 were my two worst months ever when it comes to sales.  Things were so bad during that time that I actually didn’t make enough to even pay my rent, which is usually is no problem, and ended up maxing out my credit cards so I could buy food and gas.  So, hopefully this, and the fact that NIKKI’S SECRET will be out soon, will turn things around once again.
