I heard about this site / service on this forum, and so decided to post that I'll be trying them out.

Hidden Gems is a site were you can post your book for Amazon (and maybe others) reviews. There's a LONG lead time though - the earliest date my SciFi book will go out is all the way in April of next year. It cost $20 to fish for 50 reviews - worth it if they actually come in.

Just a couple of FYI's. I downloaded freeware called calibre to create the mobi and epub (kindle and ibooks) formats. It went pretty easy and it seemed to work. Also, the image for your cover art has to be no more than 500 K.

Anyway, I'll post any progress here.
