However, if you read the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) Amazon is going to determine which authors are featured and which books are featured. So, from here it looks like it will be a great venue for people who have already sold tons of books (assuming that you can assign a weight to a Kindle book...)
What do you think are the best ways to get your work out in the public's eye?
So, without further comment, here's the e-mail:
