The Best of Fix My Story

Hey folks! I’m doing something a little bit different for this post. The past couple of weeks have been crazy for me and I haven’t been able to sit down and write an amazing post for you. I have some really great things in the works and I’m excited to share them with you, but I need to take the time to do proper research and get those posts as useful as I know they can be.

So! For this post, I’m going to do a round-up of the four best posts of Fix My Story. These are posts that you may have missed, posts that are especially popular (according to the blog stats), or posts that I think deserve another read for indie authors.

First, though, I wanted to let you know that I’ve updated the recent post How to Choose the Right Price for Your Book: Case Study to include a free downloadable template for doing your own pricing research. Special thanks to Eliza for commenting on the post and suggesting it!

And now, without further ado, here are the best four posts of Fix My Story!

This post is hands down the most popular on Fix My Story. It actually has more than triple the views of any other post I’ve done. And no wonder, since it’s a step-by-step guide to creating a nicely formatted Amazon description, complete with templates to download that make it easy for you to make your own description look great. If your Amazon description needs a boost, check this one out.

Smaller Ponds: How to Use Categories to Sell More Books

This is a post that I feel like contains key information for a successful indie author, but it’s also one that seems to get overlooked. I wrote this article to help authors understand how Amazon’s category system works, which leads to an understanding of how you can work to make your book end up on Amazon’s Top 100 lists. It’s the post I would recommend to any author who feels like they are stuck and can’t gain any traction on Amazon.

The Independent Author Professionalism Manifesto

I wrote this post as a New Year’s resolution of sorts for indie authors. We’re about halfway through 2015, so it’s worth a re-read to see how we’re all doing as independent, professional authors.

This post is a more recent addition to Fix My Story, but it’s already made its way onto the most popular posts list. Although the previously mentioned How to Format Your Amazon Description to Stand Out is the most viewed, this post is probably the most shared. If you are wondering what makes you look bad as an author on Facebook, this post will tell you four things you can avoid.
