Insecure Writers Support Group 3 January 2024


January 3 question: Do you follow back your readers on BookBub or do you only follow back other authors?

Honestly, I'm not very active on BookBub or Goodreads. The only people I follow on BookBub are other authors. The only reason I keep the Naughty Netherworld Press Goodreads account active is because I have the blog feature set to mirror my blog posts on the official Naughty Netherworld Press blog.

Facebook rejects links from my blogs as "abusive," and I can certainly see why. There is nothing more abusive than promoting one's writing without putting money in Zuckerberg's pocket. However, Facebook and GoodReads (powered by Amazon) have an understanding, so I post links to the GoodReads blog rather than my own. 

You can promote your books on Readers Roost free of charge. Readers Roost is a multi-genre blog, so pretty much anything goes. If you have an upcoming book tour you'd like to let me know about or if you'd like me to put together a guest post for you, email me at chartley65 at gmail with BOOK PROMO (all caps helps) in the subject line. If I'm putting together a guest post I will need a media kit with all information you'd like me to include and graphics attached separately. I can promo books in languages other than English but the post will be in English so the information provided in the media kit must be as well.

I also recommend joining the Marketing for Romance Writers group. You don't have to be a romance writer. You can find other authors willing to help with promotion in this group.

Wishing you all a productive year, whether you're active on BookBub and GoodReads or not!
