That was where I got my start. I started getting and realizing the power of Kindle books. My library and other sources were making it possible for me to read my books off of Kindle.
So that was a natural place for me to connect. I was somewhat isolated. I was following the rules that were listed there and I read some strategies.
Maybe on some random websites but I hadn't even realized that Reddit could be a powerful solution. For finding out what I could learn about self publishing on Amazon Reddit.
Subreddits That I Like
Later on, I found some other places I know a lot of people had used KBoards and others had used Facebook groups. I also used Facebook as well as a means to find out.
As I was progressing along, I also discovered that and this is really where it came into it. When I was following some of the promotional advice of using Facebook to promote my books.
I ran across other people who were promoting their books and were able to share some secrets. But this was not a good strategy. I could have found better places.
That's why I want to get right on into Reddit. It is an amazing location to get your answers to your self-publishing questions on Amazon.
