Some days I struggle to figure out what to blog and some days I do the pee pee dance holding myself back from making 4 posts per day. I’ll give you a rundown of cool links I found in the last few days while posting lots of reviews.
Just read this article now and loved it! http://christinerose.wordpress.com/2011/06/27/4755/
Two interesting tools I signed up for but haven’t gotten the hang of yet. http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/there-are-no-rules/cool-tools-to-track-author-platform-growth
Why Google Books is probably not a sales avenue (other than that my uploads don’t work) http://support.google.com/books/partner/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=40288&topic=2376976&ctx=topic
Another book/reading community more focused on…. www.writing.com
Something interesting I need to contemplate first: http://ezinearticles.com/?No-Cost-Ebook-Sales-Using-RapidShare-Ebook-Storage&id=5121876
An awesom all-around website, followed by a ton of articles thereon that I loved:
http://www.lindsayburoker.com/book-marketing/reasons-youre-not-selling-many-ebooks/ (This one mentioned free ebook again. Gotta get on that.)
Some links to free book promotion sites:
http://www.published.com/ (I signed up with 2 accounts, one for my author stuff and one for my blog reviews using 2 different email addresses)
http://www.bibliocracy.com/ They are doing a promotion right now using your favorite 3 paragraphs of your books. Looks awesome!
A contest I didn’t enter but probably will:
http://www.writersofthefuture.com/contest L. Ron Hubbard’s writers’ contest for new authors (self-published OK under a certain amount of sales) Limit of 1700 words, occurs several times throughout the year, one book per author per session.
Idea: Use Flickr.com to post book covers with descriptions for visibility http://www.flickr.com/photos/katepolicani/
