Say NO to Auto Photography Book on Amazon

Special Announcement!

I’m so excited that  Say NO to Auto is now selling on Amazon in print!!! When I first assembled this book 2 years ago as an e-book, I never dreamed It’d be up on Amazon! All it took was getting an ISBN # or barcode.  This version costs less than on my site, to compensate for more in shipping. (SEE below for how you can help me review it).

I had to reformat the pages, and added about 7 pages of images and info. I kinda like the back cover….see that cute barcode?

The big picture for me is that I don’t have to print, package, and mail all of the printed books that are purchased all by myself.  Though for now, I’m still keeping that as an option (spiral print still available on my site). There are definite pros and cons to this new arrangement.

Pros & Cons

Cons:

  • The book is bigger (5.5 x 8.5) and may be harder to fit in the camera bag
  • I make a LOT less per book, Amazon takes a pretty penny
  • It doesn’t have the spiral binding that I love, so harder to handle when out “in the field” shooting

Pros:

  • It will reach a lot BIGGER audience searching for help with their photography, people who would’ve never gone to my site
  • It’s bigger in print (does the pro/con of this one negate itself?) Some didn’t need the book in their bag, but found the font harder to read when small.
  • I don’t have to print and ship them!

I need your help!

2 things I would LOVE my readers to helpme with:

1. The first is quick and easy.  Simply click on this link and LIKE the book at the top. I’d LOVE to boost my “like” numbers a bit so that new shoppers will see it is liked.

2. CLICK HERE to leave a favorable review to Say NO to Auto on Amazon. I recognize this is slightly more time consuming (1-2 min?) in that I’m hoping for great reviews on Amazon!  I need the reviews more than anything, so that people will see it and WANT to buy the book because they have read review that so many other people LOVE it!  Please be descriptive, share personal examples of WHY this book helped you above others.

 

If you do leave a favorable review on Amazon, please email me (or comment on this post — email automatic) and I will respond sending you the updated e-book with all of the new info for FREE!

{This is just for my first book, Say NO to Auto. My intermediate book, Get Focused is not re-formatted yet.}

    “5.0 out of 5 stars A great little book! November 2, 2012
    By OhSusana
    Hello!

    This book is a big help, when you want to learn the basics of manual photography.
    It is easy to read, has very helpful pictures, is great to understand and also easy to follow.
    It explains the basic terminology, which you need to know.
    As it is not a huge book, it does not overwhelm you and in addition,
    you can always take it with you, when you’re on the go and taking pictures.
    (I always have it in my camera bag!!!)

    I would always buy this book again. It’s worth it!

    Thank you for this great little helper!”

  4. Congrats! :)

    Congratulations!! I “liked” it for you, but I’m afraid I can’t write a review, because I don’t yet have a camera that needs a book like that :(

  22. Congratulations, the book looks like a real winner.

  23. Amanda Mills says:

    Kristen – I DO love your book and a year after our class I still use it all the time. I “liked” it on Facebook (and I do like it!) and left a favorable review on Amazon (and I DO favor it!). Good luck, can’t wait to see more of your great projects!
    - Amanda

  24. Hi! I ordered your e-book a few months back and LOVE it! Thanks for helping improve my photography skills. I just do it for myself and family, but I love taking pictures and want them to be frame worthy. Your post today on your camera bag was also very helpful.

    I posted a review on Amazon. So nice to see your book in print! I hope it will reach many more people.

    Thanks!
    Debbie

  25. Hey Kristen,
    Do you know if the ebook versions would work on an i touch?
    I may be getting one for Christmas, so I’m not totally familiar with how these things work- just wondered if you knew…

    • Kristen Duke says:

      Heather, the files are jpgs, so like pictures. You’d have to download the zip file on a computer, then transfer the pictures to a new folder on the itouch and view it that way.

  26. I left a comment on this post a while back. I hope I didn’t write anything to offend you since my comment no longer shows up!
