Radio drama series were a welcome form of entertainment before television took precedence in homes.
We’ve had blockbuster T.V series and movies. Visual entertainment continued but as with many things, evolution keeps changing the landscape.

Got that great book still inside you?
Waiting for ‘the right time’ to arrive to get that book written and published?
As you move through life, things only get more complex and all the things you have to wade through just multiply.

Amazon has been besieged over the recent year or two by authors trying to ‘game’ the system. A number of marketers have been promoting hacks and methods that are reminiscent of the techniques used to game Google, such as keyword stuffing. Why? The methods succeeded in pushing your books up the rankings, gaining more visibility and more sales. When something works, people jump on the bandwagon and the methods get overused.
Like Google, Amazon is awake to these tricks and is cleaning out its bookshelves of books it believes may be using such tricks.
The unintended consequence is that ‘good’ authors and publishers get caught in the crossfire.
