I Want to List Your Book For You

I've decided to start listing fellow authors on my blog.

A good way for an author to help themselves is to help others.  That was the main intention of this blog in the first place so it's time I started holding up my end of the bargain!

Here's how it goes: 
  1. Comment somewhere on this blog that you'd like to be featured here
  2. Follow this blog (the more followers the better for you and me)
  3. Send me the information for your book via authorjcphelps@yahoo.com  (I will respond with a date that your book will be listed.)
What you need to include in your email.
  • Links to where your book can be found - Amazon, Smashwords and anywhere else
  • A cover picture of your book (jpg format)
  • Either a short synopsis or the back blurb from your book
  • Any comments from the author you'd like to add.  For example, is the book on sale anywhere or are you hosting a contest/giveaway that you'd like to mention
  • I would only like to include one review, so pick a good one



Depending on my response I hope to list at least one new author a week.  Please spread the word.
This is a work in progress.  There may be changes to the submission process as I learn what works and what does not.

  2. PERFECT! I'll watch for you in the in box!

    I might not start listing until Monday... I think it would be best to wait until I have a few more followers. Hopefully I'll have a few more by Monday.

    Depending on how many requests I get, I may list books more than once!

  30. JC,

    Thank you for the offer. Please find my email message transmitting Falling Star for inclusion.

    In a similiar fashion, I invite you to post about your works on my community message board, Soundings: Puget Sound Speaks at http://pugetsoundspeaks.com where I recently started a specific forum for independent authors. The site gets on average around 2,000 hits and 100 visitors per day and will spike as high as 5,400 hits and well over 200 visitors on days that something interesting is posted.

    Thanks,

    Phil

  42. Writers, who used to move their lives along with magical thinking have had a wake up call. If they want to be Indie writers, they have to market and get along in the neighborhood. That's what I love about blogs like this. It makes you get out into the neighborhood and participate.

    Please pick me, J.C.
