Last week, a friend sent me an Amazon link for a relative’s self-published book. The author was running a classic “buy my book within this window on this specific day” Amazon best-seller campaign; the relative was helping him find potential book buyers and readers.
I clicked on the link, expecting to see a motivational nonfiction book because that’s his thing.
What I saw, though, was a business book title superimposed over an image of a man in a suit. Underneath the title were two words: “A Novel.”
