Amazon Page - New and Improved

They got the cover art up:

http://www.amazon.com/Dying-Live-Sentence-Kim-Paffenroth/dp/1934861111/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1221666694&sr=1-1

As usual with a new release, its Amazon numbers are all over, but it seems to be bouncing higher each time, being at 19,000th at 5:30pm.

Nice cover!

"Bram Stoker Award Winner"
"A Thinking Man's Zombie Novel."

Very nice! I've ordered my copy. Question: Does Amazon charge publishers extra for the "excerpt previews"? Do the previews help significantly with sales?

Congrats, Kim.

Not that I know of. Getting them to post the "Search Inside" option often takes forever, but I don't believe there's any payment: if it helps sell books, it's in their best interests.

As for the effect on sales - hard to say. You put everything you can into it and just see what happens.

Nice cover. I don't like covers that try to do too much. This one has a nice tone.
It might seem silly to give weight to a cover, but it gives the piece an identity before you read it. This one is strong.

Now you'll have two things to obsess over as you work your way through slush. What's that agent doing, and checking your Amazon ranking.
