But by another argument, any firearm- semi-automatic or not — can be used, so the removal of a large number of one category of gun might nonetheless have impacts on non-mass killings. With gun suicide deaths, over the same comparison periods, there was a statistically significant acceleration in the downward trend for firearm suicides and a non-significant acceleration in the downward trend in firearm homicides.
We also examined total all-method homicides and suicides data to assess the possibility that reduced access to firearms saw people substitute other lethal methods to commit suicide or homicide. From to , the average annual rate of total non-firearm suicide and homicide deaths was rising at 2. Since then, the average annual rate of total non-firearm suicide and homicide deaths has been declining by 1.
This supports a conclusion there has been no substitution of other lethal means for suicides or homicides. Finally, we found that the post decrease in the rates of non-firearm suicide and homicide were larger than the decreases for suicide and homicide involving firearms. There are two likely explanations for this. Another study of the decline in suicide in Australia between concluded that much of the decline was explained by changes toward the use of less fatal methods.
Fewer people killed themselves using motor vehicle exhaust and this explained nearly half of the overall decline in suicide deaths. If you shoot yourself you are highly likely to die, but not so with many other methods. Another factor, which combined with the high lethality of guns when used in both suicides and assaults, is the proliferation of the mobile phone over the past 20 years. Sight gags and non-sequiturs dominate this spoof of police dramas. The six episodes formed the basis for the very successful "Naked Gun" film franchise.
A group of good-hearted, but incompetent misfits enter the police academy, but the instructors there are not going to put up with their pranks. Ryan Harrison is framed for murder and must prove himself innocent by finding a mysterious one-eyed, one-armed, one-legged man after escaping from a bus accident on the way to jail. A rogue star pilot and his trusty sidekick must come to the rescue of a Princess and save the galaxy from a ruthless race of beings known as Spaceballs.
Lieutenant Frank Drebbin returns to save the day once again. This time he's out to foil the "big boys" in the energy business. A top scientist Dr. Mainheimer is about to publish his report on energy supply for the future. Things don't look good for the traditional suppliers; oil, coal, and nuclear. To save their industries, the suppliers kidnap Mainheimer and replace him with a decoy with a more favorable report. Jane, the doctor's secretary, is Drebin's old flame. Their passionate love affair is thus rekindled. Written by Rob Hartill.
I just saw this film with a couple of friends and some beers and man we laughed so damn hard at it.. It had some gags i didn't even remembered, The one that got us crying in laughter is at the very ending when a bunch of people are asleep and one of them is all arched in a weird way sleeping in a table.. How ridiculous and funny it was!!!!! Leslie Nielson is a great guy I'm so sorry about his performance in Scarymovie 3 and those movies that squashed the good and funny memories movies like these gave us fans.
Priscila Presley is Gorgeous I guess.
Anyhow the film was great and i remember good as yesterday the time this film came out, it came out a week before The Terminator 2 and Leslie Nielsen used to do this television spots saying: Hasta la vista.. I hope someone remembers them Or someone gets them for a DVD.

Comedy Crime. Hot Shots! Strangers to Superfans — how to create an army of raving fans who promote for you. Lots of opinions, lots of advice. Facebook Ads are crazy complex and there are a million ways of doing everything. One resource I have actually used and can properly recommend is anything by Jon Loomer. His stuff is great but be warned those are general pointers he gives out, not book-specific advice.
AMS Ads — literally have nothing to put here. I have a lot more experience with AMS now. Am I any better at it? Blind clay pigeon shooting as usual, in other words. Which are no longer buried! Not only do I have a much better search function now, everything is also broken down into six handy categories. A very nice, clear summary of your campaign. ROI can be variable. Your personal situation too, obviously. Someone wide with 2 books is going to have a much tighter ROI-needle to thread than someone all in with KU and 20 different titles to play with.
Often they are hanging a little further back, but very consistently with a lot of books. AMS can play a part in that. I find ROI more stable if it is just fulfilling the simpler tasks outlined above. I can scale up… sometimes, and then the wheels come off. Other times you hit a groove for a while, and then the wheels come off.
On rare ocassions you can even get a 99 cent ad profitable and scaling up. For a bit.
Then it stops! Oh, AMS. Thanks — that was super clear and helpful…and you know, I can actually implement that strategy myself. This is very possibly the best thing on the Internet. Anyway, thank you for your invaluable information. This is the most entertaining and creative way of explaining the mysteries behind self-publishing. Such a helpful post. Is it something that still works in the current environment — i.
I guess my homework is to get my head around his book but from what I can see it is trickier than it used to be but the advice he gives on optimising descriptions alone means that many have seen a big leap on how their clicks convert to sales. Some have also had success branching out to target UK sales too. His book is useful. If I am wide and want to mimic your price points, would I attempt to make Book 1 normally priced 99 cents permafree ahead of this launch? Or is there some other trick outside of using KDP Select?

Maybe I missed a tip there. Dang, I wrote out a big-ass answer to your question and cut-and-paste it into oblivion. Also Boughts will be fine on those earlier books. Those are out a while, remember, and should have them firmly attached at this point. Also wise to shift some budget over to non Amazon retailers if wide. Basically, the plan above is A way not THE way.
You can be more aggressive than this even with price if you have a long series in KU. You can scale budget up or down depending on your situation too.
The skeleton is the same, just try and use the right tool for each job. This is fascinating, and makes sense, but what about ongoing marketing between launches? Not easy! BUT you have a couple of options. If you are in KU, the algorithm tickling approach can trigger a page read wave which can last for weeks or months if the planets align and keep your book visible. Becomes a feedback loop. NOT easy to do, but the basic strategy above can result in it.
Talked about it in Decoded in more detail. If you are wide, then a drip marketing approach or having some element of that at least , might be better than the Big Bang approach above which is more designed to max out KU reads. But, more generally, AMS is a good tool for a baseline of sales continually… ish.
Caveated by the usual AMS frustrations of course. So this really is helpful, and sort of a DOH! Thanks for posting this. Also, the new site looks great! What do you do if your books have no Also Boughts, no matter how many books you sell? I started with no ABs 8 weeks ago. I run a manual campaign, but the lack of auto keywords is telling in terms of how devoid of data my books are on Amazon.
