Today we are going to talk about one of my favorite topics, data!

Alex Newton, the CEO and Founder of a leading market research resource for authors and publishers or put in terms we care about his company and expertise helps authors sell more books, face less competition, and get a bigger return on the time and money that put into their careers.

He’s based in Germany and  he has 20 years of worldwide consulting experience, has focused for the past four years on Amazon and ebooks, and has the unique ability to translate complex data into ways that the average writer can understand … and how to take action on that data.
