How To Query Amazon Kindle Singles: The Little Goat That Could

Short excerpt:

This wasn’t supposed to happen to George Berger, especially when he was this close to throwing in the towel. You see, George made a (rather public) vow after two years of tepid sales – he would give it one more shot, and, if his latest story was also universally ignored, he would hang up his quill, for good.

His next release wasn’t overflowing with obvious commercial potential. It was, after all, a coming-of-age story about a goat.

Hello;

With considerably more hubris and chutzpah than actual hope, I’d like to submit Midnight’s Tale, ASIN B0084V2MW6, to the Kindle Singles program. It’s a literary tale of life, love, and self-discovery in the vein of sundry well-received works by famous and talented people I would never dare try to compare myself to.

Sincerely yours,
George Berger
