Amazon’s Recommendation Engine Trumps The Competition

I am an author from India and want to self publish a book with Amazon Let me learn /hear from your good-self!!! Thanks Much

ammyThere’s an old adage that bestsellers are chosen rather than made, and there’s some truth to that. The amount a publisher splurges on the advance has to be recouped before the book turns a profit. The more money that has to be recouped, the greater the marketing budget.

Sleeper hits are the exception for a reason. It’s a lot easier to hit the bestseller lists when you are on the front table of every single Barnes & Noble than if you are spine-out at the back of a handful of stores (or gathering dust in the warehouse).

       VEHICLES on road go with aggressive speed ,causing countless number of accidents . Many a people lose their lives each minute. Many get serious injuries . So many properties and working hours are lost  due to reckless ,aggressive and offensive driving 

       Man has invented Speed Governors to curb the over speed of vehicles . But what is the advantage?. The authorities deplorably fail often to implement the law . The result ? Unfortunate,unavoidable, tragedies are taking place each minute all over the world.   What a pathetic situation? When will it have an end ? All Must unite  and end the massacre on the wheels .The loopholes in law must be checked and shut. The culprits should be brought to law. Counseling centers should be opened to vehicle as well as traffic man . It is playing with innocent human lives and as-such should be dealt with some iron hands

Write about your strongest memory of heart-pounding belly-twisting

Write about your strongest memory of heart-pounding belly-twisting nervousness: what caused the adrenaline? Was it justified? How did you respond?

 On the first day of my School,when I was five or six, I heard the bell rang for lunch and ran out among the other students,towards my Home,towards east ,while my Home is in the west.   My body and mind tensed when I ran 5 kms in the opposite direction!  A friend of my father identified me and brought back me to the School. I still remember  the agony, tension and pain I suffered on the first day of my school .  What can a little boy do ?  Thanks for God and the friend who helped in time …..and also for WordPress for getting me back to the early days
