Did anyone notice the link that mysteriously appeared on my website’s right sidebar today?
Scroll down past the Goodreads Giveaway button and you’ll see it.
This site appears to be a wonderful marketing resource for authors and a great place for readers to find new books. It consolidates all of your pertinent contacts on one site that currently has a following of over 8700 people on Twitter and approximately 2500 LIKES on Facebook. Hopefully for David and his subscribers that number will continue to grow.
Is there a charge for this service? No.
Yes, absolutely no strings attached. At least, I have yet to experience any.
The template that you fill in is straightforward and user friendly. Just keep in mind that you cannot cut and paste the description of your book from your Amazon page or book cover. You will need to create something new.
How long does it take for your account to become active? It depends on you and David.
If you just fill out the form, you will wait your turn for the information to be processed. First come, first serve can be a quick or slow process. There are too many variables to determine any time frame. A second option is to agree to add an Ask David link to your website. By doing so, your information will jump to the front of the line.
Linking to other sites is beneficial to all parties involved. Unless you have a preference to living in isolation, it is a win-win situation for both the author and the promoter.
According to the website, this forum promotes books and publishes reviews submitted by the community. The company checks all of the reviews manually before they are published. The reviews cannot be cut and pasted from another site because only original reviews will be accepted. Over 4100reviews have been published so far.
Check out my promotion page and tell me what you think?
