Chris McMullen alerted me to a brand new Amazon initiative that aims at supporting Indie authors: the #PoweredByIndie hashtag. Amazon is encouraging indie authors to use the #PoweredByIndie hashtag on relevant social media posts, namely your own writing resolutions and indie book recommendations. So, be sure to add the tag to any tweets and posts about your Indie books, and hopefully they will be featured on Amazon.
Specifically, Amazon has created a landing page for indie authors’ writing resolutions and recommendations for indie books (it’s worth exploring, as the page includes many books and audio books geared toward writing and publishing):
Also check out regularly the Amazon KDP Facebook page for information straight from the horse’s mouth and various publishing tips:
Please Support Emotional Beats
If you have found Emotional Beats helpful, please share the tweet below and, who knows, maybe it, too, will be featured on the new landing page 🙂

I received an email from Amazon informing me of this! Thanks for the reminder, Nicholas 🙂
Oh, right! I didn’t. Grmph.
This is wonderful!
Thank you! Use it well 🙂
Good to know, thanks. It will be interesting to see where it leads and what the process is like in terms of results.
I’ll let you know if I do come across some data 🙂
Fantastic! I left a review for Emotional Beats, right? I can’t recall.
You did, and I’m grateful for it. Thank you 🙂
Oh, good. I thought I did, but wasn’t sure. Love the book. Very handy!
Yay! Thank you, Sue, for making my day 🙂
Good to see Amazon doing more to help. They have such a stranglehold on the market, it’s the least they can do!
Best wishes, Pete.
Many thanks, Pete 🙂
Interesting. I have the same question as D. Wallace Peach.
As I told D, they didn’t really clarify it on their page. As far as I can tell, they plan on sharing the tweets/posts and choosing books from among them to feature on their page.
Still interesting. 😉
Thanks for the info, Nicholas. Is this geared toward certain types of posts/tweets or anything book related? Do you know if Amazon has an explanation of how it’s to be used? Thanks!
They didn’t really clarify it on their page. As far as I can tell, they plan on sharing the tweets/posts and choosing books from among them to feature on their page.
Thanks. It seemed a little broad. Worth a try!
I’ll have to try that today. Seems like a fairly long hashtag, but it makes the point.
