I’m working on figuring out what the best categories for Amazon would be, and what are the “critical features” to include in the short written summary to attract buyers.
Because they only allow two categories, I was thinking “military fiction” and “libertarian fiction”. Would general SF be better, or Space Opera, or Action Adventure, or …? Thoughts, suggestions?
As for the intro, should I have more than the following:
Helton Strom is a reasonably ordinary guy dropped into extraordinary circumstances while doing nothing more than going to another planet to visit his sister, while he was on a break between teaching contracts. After running afoul of law-enforcement, space pirates, the mob, parts of officialdom, the captain of a naval cruiser, and only making a few friends along the way, he struggles to establish a new life and earn a living by getting a very old spaceship flying, only to discover it’s more than a bit unusual.
