Link of the Week – Stripping Amazon’s Book Link Anatomy

February 2, 2016

Authors, did you know you might be sabotaging your Amazon reviews? You know, when great reviews disappear, removed by Amazon citing that the author knows the reviewer, etc. It’s all in the Amazon URL you might be using when you share your book links on social media.

This short video by K-lytics explains it all and tells you how to strip your book links down to avoid Amazon’s bots.

 


Link of the Week – InD’Tale

March 19, 2013

Getty rf penThis week’s awesome link is to InD’Tale Magazine. The online magazine is dedicated to self-published and small press authors. Within the pages and all throughout the website, there are honest book reviews, educational articles and columns, contests, polls, interviews, and industry information.  It’s a great place for both writers and readers.

While you are there, check out the nice review I received earlier this year for A KISS IN THE WIND.

Link of the Week – askDavid

September 18, 2012

I just stumbled upon this site and thought how cool is that? This is a great spot for both readers and authors!

askDavid.com is a site ‘publishes reviews submitted by the community’.  The  reviews added here  are NOT found anywhere else on the web.  Each product has it’s own page. Along with any askDavid.com reviews, there are reviews found on Amazon, a section to add a review of the book, and recommendations. Oh, and Daivd, himself gives a description or nugget of information, about the book, too.

So who is this David fellow? He’s the handsome and clever virtual character (or spokesman) for the site.

Here’s a page for one of my books, BENEATH THE WATER’S EDGE, for an example.

And it’s not just for books, either. Movies, music, electronics, furniture, cute shoes, truck tires, vibrators … hey, just about anything.

Know what else? Authors can advertise their books on this site for FREE! Yes…FREE! What are you waiting for? Go check it out!
