In general, press releases should basically sound like the article you would like to see written (or announcement you want to hear read). The reason is that the person who gets the press release is likely to be busy. In many cases, your copy might be used exactly as you provided it. The only caveat is that you don't want to sound too overly promotional ...

If you sell through CreateSpace, you can link to the work on Amazon. Since like every book known to man is on Amazon, you should be fine. What I have done is made the eBook separately and put on Amazon and then published the print version and then through the Amazon Author program I linked the two together.

Just a long comment. It is important to note that x.99 is not the only price threshold. Others may lie around x.20 or elsewhere. Price thresholds are not determined by the raw numbers alone, but also by the prices of comparable products, the type of product, the monetary system (the smallest coins in some currencies are .05 or even 1.00), and so on.

There are so many different options to consider and so many different factors to take into consideration, and I can guarantee these questions have been asked at least a thousand times on a thousand ...

By "narrow keywords" do you mean long tail keywords or highly niche-specific keywords? Long tail keywords are much more descriptive/qualified (think "shoes" versus "red satin dancing shoes for children") and as such may target leads further along the sales funnel. A study published in Search Engine Watch did find long tail keywords to be associated with ...

I'd say always end with some questions & appeals for comments, like "What did you like or dislike about the movie? Am I being too harsh when I criticised $Actor for the way they portrayed their character in $Scene? How should they have done it? What would you like me to review or cover next time?" Then when you do get comments, engage them in a ...

The question that will answer your question is: What do you expect people to comment about? I mean, what is there to say to a movie review? That you write well? That you accurately summed up the plot? That you missed the beaver shot at 0:34? Most people read movie reviews to decide if they want to see a movie. They read the review, then they see the ...
