3.6-EnhancedEnhanced Online Posting and Amazon Look Inside
We will upload the book to Amazon and Google enhanced listings.  Amazon’s Search Inside the Book feature will include your book in search results based upon matches on every single word in your book, not just results that match the title or author. Potential readers can then look inside your book to see the page where the search term(s) appears and read a sample of your work to help make a purchase decision. You have probably seen the “Look Inside” logo across the top of many books listed on Amazon.
The Google Books feature matches the content of your book to Google user searches.  The search result will pull up the title, author, a short excerpt containing the key search words, and information on the book. Clicking on the result will give the viewer a limited preview of the book and links to the various places the viewer can purchase the book.
Price:  $250
