Reader Magnets: Build Your Author Platform and Sell more Books on Kindle (Book Marketing for Authors 1)

Reader Magnets are what bring readers to YOU.

They're an irresistible force that draw readers in to your author platform - the promise of getting great value content and building a valuable connection. That's what it's all about, after all - making meaningful relationships with your audience and having a direct line to your readers.

I started using Reader Magnets a little over six months ago. I didn't even have a term for it back then. Since I put these measures in place, over 15,000 readers have signed up to hear from me about new releases and promotions - all in just a few months.

My readers trust me with their contact details for good reason. I give them good content. In return, they buy my books. These guys are my fans. I appreciate every last one of them - and they're the reason I get to write for a living.

What Reader Magnets Have Done for Me:

- My last email - I made $547 in book sales.

- I launch every new book into the top #900 or better.

- I don't need to rely on Amazon for an income.

- I don't need to pay advertisers to get sales.

- I saw my first 1,000 subscribers after just a couple of weeks.

- My click-rate is five times higher than the industry average

- My open-rate is more than double

How?

It's all about getting readers to commit. Get their email addresses. Follow up. Build value. Build your brand.

Let me repeat the headline again: I picked up 15,000 new reader email addresses in less time than it takes for most people to write a new book. I got my first 1,000 readers signed up in just a couple of weeks. My click-rates are through the roof. I do this with Reader Magnets - and you can too.

This carefully crafted ebook is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.

The election of the President and Vice President of the United States is an indirect vote in which citizens cast ballots for a set of members of the U.S. Electoral College. These electors then cast direct votes for the President and Vice President. If both votes result in an absolute majority, the election is over. If a majority of electors do not vote for President, the House of Representatives chooses the President; if a majority of electors do not vote for Vice President, the Senate votes. Presidential elections occur quadrennially on Election Day, which since 1845 has been the Tuesday after the first Monday in November, coinciding with the general elections of various other federal, state, and local races. The 2016 U.S. presidential election is scheduled for November 8.

Tales of New England:: Histories of Early Settlers

This narrative describes some of the earliest New England settlers and their families who are woven into the fabric of American history.

Proverbs: Selected Comments on Twenty-two Proverbs

Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. Bridges' Proverbs is "The best work on the Proverbs. While explaining the passage in hand, he sets other portions of the Word in new lights."--C. H. Spurgeon

"While other parts of Scripture show us the glory of our high calling, this book may instruct us in all minuteness of detail how to "walk worthy" of it (Col 1:10). We see the minuteness of out Christian obligations; that there is not a temper, a look, a word, a movement, the most important action of the day, the smallest relative duty, in which we do not either deface or adorn the image of our Lord, and the profession of His name. Surely if the book conduced to no other end, it tends to humble even the most consistent servant of God, in consciousness of countless failures. The whole book is a mirror for us all, not only to show our defects, but also [as] a guidebook and directory for godly conduct."--Charles Bridges, from the Preface, 1846

Charles Bridges (1794-1869) was one of the leaders of the evangelical movement in the Church of England in the mid-1800s. He was Vicar of Old Newton, Suffolk, from 1823 to 1849, and later of Weymouth and Hinton Martell in Dorset. Bridges is known for both literary work such as The Christian Ministry and his expositions, which include Ecclesiastes and Psalm 119 as well as Proverbs.

Interview with the Authors:

So what makes Writers on Writing so special?

Todd Keisling: Writers On Writing is unique in that it provides a collection of essays from both newcomers and established professionals, providing a wide range of perspectives on the art and craft of writing.

Tell us more about you essay in Writers on Writing.

Todd Keisling: My essay "Never Look Away: Confront Your Fears in Fiction" is an anecdotal look at an important lesson I learned early on in my writing career: That you shouldn't look away from your subject matter, no matter how disturbing it is to you. Looking away does a disservice to your story, and by proxy, your reader.

Why should authors read Writers on Writing?

Jack Ketchum: It's rich in the variety of subjects discussed, written by people who know whereof they speak.

Ancestors: adventures in a family history

An adventurous and entertaining expedition into tracing family history. After a brief irreverent look at how to obtain and use records, the author enters the world of his - and your - ancestors, with a few stories, scrapes and escapades on the way.



We take a penetrating look at women's lot, transport, religion, education and Viking ancestry. Visit a court, a battle field, and hear some amusing stories about heraldry, pedigrees and genealogy.

This book demonstrates how to breathe life into dusty parish records, censuses, registration documents, wills and history books, by using archives, museums and combining the skills of storyteller, archaeologist, historian - and detective. By example the book shows that tracing your ancestry can be an adventure of a lifetime.

The last chapter gives details on how you can turn your family history from unpromising and limited material into appealing, inviting, exciting media that evokes atmosphere and brings your forebears to life.

The author's ancestors include 18th C. Westmorland farmers, Knights, Quakers, Academics and "one poor soul burnt at the stake".

A book that is readable, informative, imaginative and at times thoughtful.

On the Road with Bronco Billy - A Trucking Journal

What follows is an account of a ten day journey through western North America during a working trip, delivering lumber from Edmonton Alberta to Dallas Texas, and returning with oilfield equipment. The writer had the opportunity to accompany a friend who is a professional truck driver, which he eagerly accepted. He works as a statistician for the University of Alberta, and is therefore is generally confined to desk, chair, and computer. The chance to see the world from the cab of a truck, and be immersed in the truck driving culture was intriguing. In early May 1997 they hit the road.

Some time has passed since this journal was written and many things have changed since the late 1990's. That renders the journey as not just a geographical one, but also a historical account, which I think only increases its interest.

We were fortunate to have an eventful trip - a mechanical breakdown, a near miss from a tornado, and a large-scale flood were among these events. But even without these turns of fate, the drama of the landscape, the close-up view of the trucking lifestyle, and the opportunity to observe the cultural habits of a wide swath of western North America would have been sufficient to fill up an interesting journal.

The travelogue is about 20,000 words, about 60 to 90 minutes of reading, at typical reading speeds.

Walk in the Spirit!: Volume 1

"If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit." (Galatians 5.25)

Sounds great! But just what exactly is "walking in the Spirit"? "Walking in the Spirit" is living a virtuous life under the influence of the Holy Spirit. In other words, doing just as our Lord Jesus would do.

But is "walking in the Spirit" possible? Yes! If it weren't, why would God have given us such detailed explanations in His Word?

This series, like Illustrated Bible Verses, is a book of Bible verses and photos. The verses in this series show what God's Word says about walking in the Spirit. Use it as an introduction to the subject or as a refresher course.

I pray that you would be blessed abundantly with this series, walking in the Spirit and being fruitful in every good word and work.

I want to complain : an alternative guide to customer service

Have you got something to complain about? Have you been short changed? Have you complained and got nothing but hollow apologies? Are you due compensation? Then this book could help. Instead of writing letters using red biro and block capitals, underlining every other word, swearing at inappropriate places and writing key words twice as big, follow the 'I want to complain' philosophy and make your letters entertaining; make the person dealing with your complaint want to help you instead of shoving your letter under the pile of others they have to deal with that day and getting to it 'later'. With eight years experience in a customer management role for a multi-national retailer, Peter realised that it was the light-hearted, entertaining letters that received the most satisfactory resolutions. 'I want to complain' explains exactly what life is like on the other end of the call-centre telephone and just how to ensure your complaints are dealt with as a priority. The second section of the book contains a collection of genuine complaint letters Peter has written over the years using the philosophy laid out in the first section, along with their replies so you can see for yourself just how it works. Those companies written to include Marks and Spencer, Tesco, Asda and even Newcastle city council to get a parking ticket revoked - all with positive resolutions. 'I want to complain' hopes to put the 'fun' into refund and the 'jest' into goodwill gesture as it takes you on an entertaining and humorous journey into the world of customer services.

The book provides an overview of more than a decade of joint R&D efforts in the Low Countries on HLT for Dutch. It not only presents a state of the art of HLT for Dutch in the areas covered, but, even more importantly, an account of the concrete results (resources and tools for Dutch) achieved that have now become available for both academia and industry worldwide.

The book also shows how a medium-sized language (spanning two territories) can create a digital language infrastructure (resources, tools, etc.) as a basis for subsequent R&D. At the same time, it bundles contributions of almost all the HLT research groups in Flanders and the Netherlands, hence offering a view of their recent research activities. Targeted readers are mainly researchers in human language technology, in particular those focusing on Dutch.
