Networking, Writing

Amazon

So I didn’t get any writing done this morning before work but I did get the house picked up, did laundry, washed dishes took the dog for a walk and signed up for a new thing on Amazon. It’s Amazon Authors and if you’re an eauthor you can sign up add a bio, some pictures, link your webpage and twitter account to it. Hopefully it will work out well. People on Facebook can ‘like’ it and both twitter and Facebook people can share it with their friends. I believe it will keep people updated on new books that you add to your author profile. Just another way to keep all the readers of your books in the loop.

 

Does anyone else know how to get your name out there? Anyone have bloggers that will read your work and write reviews? I’ve had a hard time getting my name out there and getting people to review my work. I only have one full length book out there right now though so maybe once I get more things published it will happen faster. I’m also looking into getting my full length into paperback books. Anyone know a good place to do that so that people can buy the books there or through Amazon? I’d love to get some feedback from people who have already found all this out. If you haven’t found out yet and I do first I will make sure to let you know! Thanks for any and all help and by the way if you wanted to ‘like’ my amazon author page just click here. ‘like’ it and share it with friends!

Reviews and Free Book

Well my free, Handsome Stranger, is about to go back on sale. I’ve had at least 500 downloads on it while it was free, that’s just three days. I’m so excited that I have been able to reach so many people by offering my book for free. This has really opened my eyes to how many people I could reach if I keep at it. When I finally get my next Rolling Hills book done I may do a promotional with the first book. Don’t know when or if I’ll be able to but I’m thinking about it. I know it will be a much better launch than the one I threw together for Cupid’s Test.

Speaking of my newest story Cupid’s Test, I have got three ratings on Goodreads. Two 3 stars and one 5 stars. With a quote of “Easy to read and very fun yet romantic.” ~ Michelle Lafreniere I’m so excited that people like it. It was meant to be a fun short story. It’s a sweet romance, all the ‘business’ is behind the scene, which means no going into detail with this one.

My other books have some detail but I try to make it just a scene or two. You can skip it if you don’t like that kind of thing and don’t miss anything from the storyline. I know some people like that and some don’t.

I love getting reviews and ratings, good or bad. I would love it if they were also on Amazon so that other people could see what they thought of the book. I wish Goodreads and Amazon could be linked but I’ll take it either way. I know it can be annoying to have to go to a lot of different places just to review or rate a book you’ve read. I can’t say that I do it a lot. I can tell you how much we (as in authors) love hearing what readers think and really appreciate it when readers write reviews or rate the books so that other potential readers can see it.
