A lot of writers complain about the lack of visibility on Amazon, but it seems to me there's an easy solution for many of them since they write short stories. Either the latest issue of the KDP newsletter, or maybe it was Amazon Author Insights, said the best way to gain visibility is with more books. So I'm thinking those who write short stories could post their individual fics on Amazon for 99¢ (clearly marked as short stories since so many writers are selling whole novels for that price), then offer the complete collection for $2.99 or whatever. They probably won't sell any of those individual stories, but just having them there on the writer's book page should make the writer more visible, eh? And it'll make the complete collection look like more of a bargain. They could even group some stories into separate volumes based on themes, like all the romantic fics in one collection, all the fantasy in another, etc. I wonder if this would work? I seriously need to write more short stories. _〆(..)

Omg here it is!!   Finally.   ٩(˘◡˘)۶

That hidden gem you were promised. Sorry you had to wade through a thousand mediocre books to get to this one, but at least you've finally found it. Good for you for not giving up the search early! So many other readers quit long before now.

So good for you! )

Amazon's fixed their search engine!

I searched for fascist America and my book not only came up this time, but came up on the first page. Latino protagonist also brings it up on the first page. Not many books of either. I wonder whether they've tweaked it or if I just did something wrong in the past, but anyway...I'm a happy camper today!

La la la! ☆*・゜゚・\(=^‥^)/・゜゚・*☆
