First-rate advice from America's greatest living publisher! One other suggestion ....

" 'bestseller' by virtue of selling a handful of copies. I don’t know how all this works, but my guess is that Amazon is not inclined to do favors for free."

Actually, I never paid for this listing. BUT what I did do is to tell everyone I knew to buy a copy of my book the VERY DAY of its publication. Concentrating such purchasing did indeed catapult it to the top of several of Amazon's 'categories' thereby becoming "a #1 Amazon best seller."
