I’m freely willing to admit that I’m doing this whole self-publishing thing by the seat of my pants. I know how to write. Marketing, advertising and review mongering aren’t really anything I know how to do. (Punctuation can also be iffy.) The confusing advice on the web isn’t helping, nor is Amazon’s new murky review rules. Side note: I don’t really like review mongering and until Amazon is sorted out I might not bother trying.
But the major problem I may be having is I write for a category that doesn’t really exist. I don’t write werewolf romance novels or biker erotica. I write werewolf bikers action/adventure, dash of humor, romance as salt. Back in fandom I was a definite romantic comedy writer. I know what I do and I do it well.
So figuring out Amazon Key Words has been entertaining, as they don’t explain them very well. I changed them today after randomly finding some tools and advice that wasn’t affiliated with Amazon. Oh thank goodness.

And this awesome article. So easy, I don’t know why I didn’t think of it. 😦
And because I’ve decided to talk about my werewolf action/adventure story. The Lone Prospect for sale on Kindle.
