New Feature on Amazon: KDP Select for KDP Authors & Publishers

 This information is included in the latest version of the book, How to Launch a Christian Best-Seller.

Any Kindle books you have published on Amazon can be entered into the KDP Select Program. It’s the exclusivity that makes this a unique Amazon feature. You must remove your ebook from other distributors, like Smashwords and Barnes & Noble (even your own website or blog) for at least ninety days.

The KDP Select titles are allowed to be advertised for free for five days every ninety days. If you have U.S. rights, your Kindle book will be entered into the Kindle Owners Lending Library. Each time your ebook is loaned to another qualified member of the program, you can earn a certain percentage back, based on a complicated set of algorithms that I don’t understand. I didn’t give it much thought until one of our members shared recently on the forum that he had made a couple of hundred dollars the previous month based on the number of times his book had been loaned out by members.  

Some authors in the Network have “sold” thousands of Kindle books for free during the time their ebooks have been free in the KDP Select Program. While they didn’t receive royalties, their Kindle books were widely distributed, and many ranked in the top one hundred “free” Amazon ebooks. When Amazon returned their ebooks to the “paid” category, briefly they maintained their best-seller ranking, becoming a best-seller of sorts by default. In many instances, the increased sales of ebooks carried over into print books or other books they had published. To learn more about KDP Select, visit:

What is keeping you from walking in God's grace?

Tearing Down the Walls, Walking in His Grace

So many of us desire freedom - the freedom that is promised to us when we decide to follow Jesus. 

The freedom from the burden of our sin, the need to be "good enough," anger, jealousy, and envy.

Even though we are believers we would be ashamed to say that we don't always experience peace, contentment, and joy in our life. 

We are looking for the grace that God has so graciously given to us to be real in our life...

Blog Hop by John 316 Authors May 7 through May 14

Don't Miss Our Blog Hop by John 316 Authors 

May 7 through May 14 

Lots of free gifts, including two Kindles!

The John 3:16 Marketing Network

For the past couple of years, I have had the privilege of being one of many authors in the John 3:16 Marketing Network.  When I was a ”newbie” marketing my books I struggled…”floundered” is a better word, in getting the word out there about my books.  I STILL do!  But praise God for the John 3:16 Network of authors.  From the moment I became a member I have been whole-heartedly encouraged by a great group of Christian authors who share the common goal to reach others for Christ through our books.  The thing is for us to reach that goal, people actually need to pick up  our books and read them, and that’s where the John 3:16 Marketing Network comes in.  It’s authors helping authors through the use of online social networking to help with book launches and promotion.
But it goes beyond that.  We are offered techniques and tips to help us achieve “Best Seller” status on  Achieving “Best Seller” status is not only incredibly encouraging to an author, but it elicits even more public interest in the book.  In my case, with the help of the Network,  I not only achieved best seller status on with my second book, Heal the Wounded on the day of its launch, but I garnered renewed interest in my debut novel, Shoot the Wounded, so it climbed to #1 on !

I can’t tell you how excited I was to see that!  More recently the Network has been looking at other ways of promoting the authors and their books.  Lorilyn Roberts, founder of the John 3:16 Marketing Network with the help of a few others put together a great promotional book: Taste and See, A Sampling of First Chapters by John 316 Marketing Network
  As one of the contributors I was delighted to participate in this innovative project.
May 7 – 14, the John 3:16 authors will be hosting a Giveaway Blog Hop where our readers can go from blog to blog and win some great book prizes and more.  We’re also going to offer a chance for subscribers to our blogs to win one of  TWO Kindles!  More details to follow as we get closer to the date.
