K-LYTICS – Monitoring Data. So You Don’t Have To

K-lytics has been monitoring the mystery, thriller, suspense, and crime fiction categories on Kindle for five years now.

While many traditional publishers compete for this lucrative book market segment, they see a lot of smaller dcategories and niche markets available to indie authors.

Here are three exciting facts from looking at the data right now:

  • Mystery, Thriller & Suspense (MTS) has seen a 5-year upward trend on Kindle
  • MTS holds on to its position of the second highest-selling Amazon bestseller list.

  • All—yes, all— of the sub-categories in the main MTS category showed up in the “green zone” of attractive markets on the K-lytics Book Strategy Map. 100% – Wow!

K-LYTICS announce the release of the latest K-lytics Mystery & Thriller genre AUGUST report.

  • The report also includes Level 4 and Level 5 sub-categories. In total, it examines 137 Amazon Kindle categories.
  • If you intend to do any kind of book project with elements of mystery, crime, thriller or suspense, this report is for you.
  • Find out about trends, sales development, book supply, best categories, covers, top authors, publishers, keywords, price points, and more. The seminar comes with two reports and an explanatory video.

With this data, you will have more market insights than most publishers out there.

Plugins were my Downfall!

Plugins Were My Downfall

Plugins

At last, after months, and months, I have been able to customise my website. Each time I tried (and failed), I got one of those irritating messages that said it was unresponsive and I could either Wait or Exit. I was tearing my hair out that I’d wasted half a day on this malarkey.

Plugin Problem

I eventually realised that it might be one of my plugins that were the culprit (slow or what?). They’ve been behind every other aggravation I’ve experienced, so when I thought about it, one or more of these was the obvious suspect.

Plugin Problem Solved

After I stripped out all of my plugins, barring the few that are self-controlled, I could customise. Amazed? Delighted? I’ll say. I might even dare to be more regular in my blogging in future (if that’s not tempting the fates to do dire things–which it probably is).

Bright and Shiny

Repeat after me. I must not get new plugins in the manner of a person seeking happiness in retail therapy.  It will only bring misery and pain. So these are my new rules to live by:

Plugin Rules

  • insert only one new plugin at a time
  • find out exactly how it works
  • delete it the minute you suspect it of sabotage
  • don’t agonise–ask a tech-savvy person for help
  • this applies equally to all technology. If you don’t understand it, and think you never will–don’t install it. Technology is such a time-suck if you weren’t brought-up with it.

Oops! I was trying to delete one of my versions of this free box-set on bookfunnel, who host it, but when I pressed DELETE, to my horror, all three of them disappeared!
