Mike did this great cover!

I toiled over this blog post. It got longer and longer. Basically, it was the story of how Blood Orchids has become a bestseller through “Book Lovers”(read more for definition) social media, and three “overarching principles” that have guided my thinking: PIF, AV, and TQ. (Read it for definition! heh!)

It got so long I made a minibook and decided this might be useful for other writers. Here it is, for the whopping sum of 99 cents, my hard-won (some say pot-boiled) experience in building a reader base that has fans of Orchids clamoring for the sequel.

It's only 20 pages but they're power-packed. I don't pad with fluff, but I do Add Value (AV) with a bonus preview of Torch Ginger, the sequel, at the end.

What makes this different from all the others out there?

I talk about how to maximize Kindle Select and free promo days to leverage your book's visibility. This is so new most of the other author platform books haven't included it.

Oh, and it's short and to the point.
