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

Alex Newton is the CEO and founder of K-Lytics.com, 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 they 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 the average writer can understand … and take action on that data.

Alex, great to have you on the show!
