I am sure anyone who has tried to sell their book on Amazon has struggled with the choice of category. Amazon offers the choice of two categories to position a book on their virtual shelves initially. Two are seldom enough.

Non-fiction readers can address their needs topically, searching out books on sleep, or nutrition, or style. Fiction readers can also seek books to suit their desires, be it romance or fantasy or … Continue reading Writing Comfort
