BTW everyone, I'm only allowed to do 15 tags on each book. If this is a general Amazon thing then, anyone with more than 15 tags, say which ones are the most important and I'll tag those.

Cheers

Whoa, hang on. No, we're not buying each other's books; we're just checking off the existing tags on the book's description page on Amazon and/or Amazon UK. The tag count contributes to Amazon's super-secret search algorithm, bumping us up the list. Sales figures contribute, too, so buying all of each other's book would certainly help, but it'd be a much bigger commitment than a bunch of clicks!

Oh, by the way, I tagged all the new folks who I'd not tagged in other threads.

My links to my Amazon author pages are in my sig. There's a lot there. I just ask that people do what they can.

Off to the start of the thread now. Wish me luck, I'm going in.

...edited 10 minutes later to say that I've caught everybody, thanks to there being a few well known peeps here from other places
Very well said!

AND you have a GREAT first name!

Hi Guys,

I'm pretty new in these parts but discovering a huge amount of useful information. I've just been over to the Amazon sites and done the tagging requested on the books here.

If anyone felt like doing a spot of tagging in return, my latest Kindle fantasy short is here :

US : http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004AHKBVW
UK : http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004AHKBVW

Tags I'm after : fantasy, urban fantasy, short story, Merlin, magic, demons, kindle

My eternal gratitude!

Done Simon. Don't forget that you can tag your own books. The UK version only had two tags showing.

Don't sweat it. No one is born knowing everything, and we all have to start somewhere.

Sincerely,

Simon, Welcome!
I just tagged you.
btw, I am a professional musician. Your book looks VERY interesting indeed!

Now I have to address the 'not being born knowing everything' comment. Since I am the OP of this thread, I'm gonna have to bump you Maria and say that I am the one and only master of the universe, born knowing everything there is to know. (Yeah, I wish)

Anyhoo, My Uk tags have been stuck...If any of my UK friends can tag me that would be great! Also, I am having trouble adding any tags to my book in the UK.
What's up with that?
