Hey guys! I've been gone from the blogging waters for so long I'm not sure where to start. All good things, I can assure you. Thankfully, I have a blogging legend here who is willing to take control of the helm for just a wee little bit longer. Please welcome the wisdom and might of Roland Yeomans! What knowledge have you for us?

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the internet waters, here comes another guest post in my
“Don’t You Hate Book Tours?” Book Tour!
A Kindle book is always a live book. A print book withers off the shelf of a bookstore within weeks.
Why do I mention Kindle books? THE NOT-SO-INNOCENTS ABROAD is now available in affordable Kindle format. Isn’t that cooler than the other side of the pillow?
Did you like my A TO Z CHALLENGE series of posts sparkling with the banter between the ghost of Mark Twain and Sigmund Freud?
Well, old Mark’s wit can be seen striking sparks from the likes of Ulysses S. Grant, Sitting Bull, a vampire Benjamin Franklin, 11 year old Nikola Tesla, and more …
What more? Well, there is that incident where Mark Twain, just innocently mind you, finds his hand on the naked thigh of a beautiful alien assassin!
So if you’ve enjoyed Mark Twain in my A TO Z posts, he is waiting for you in THE NOT-SO-INNOCENTS ABROAD …
Along with Samuel McCord, his newly wed alien Empress wife, an insane Abraham Lincoln, Horace Greely, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Captain Nemo, and many more.
Have a book coming out? Are you writing a book? Have you written books already?
It is important, not only that you have them in affordable Kindle format, but regularly write interesting posts on your blog.
You never know when a blog visitor will be so taken with your posts that she or he will want to take a chance on one of your books.
THE ODDS ARE NOT IN YOUR FAVOR … UNLESS YOU MAKE THEM SO! With Kindle books you can publish new books more frequently unlike traditional print.
WHY THAT IS IMPORTANT:
THE DREADED 90 DAY CLIFF –
After which your books will make fewer waves in the Amazon algorithm.
What this means is that 90 days after you publish a book, it’s less likely to sell.
Some authors have used this cliff to their advantage, by making sure they publish a book every 90 days without fail.
It can be a novella, a short story, or a multi-author box set. It doesn’t seem to matter what you put out, as long as you’re publishing something every 90 days.
Beginning to hyperventilate? Don’t stress over this.
Simply make sure you’re publishing as often as you can to keep your books higher in Amazon’s rankings.
Still reading this? What are you waiting for? Get to it and write.
BUT FIRST BUY MY KINDLE BOOK!!
