Welcome to the weekly round up with posts you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.
As you will see it has been a busy week on the Christmas Book Fair front and it looks like I will have just enough time to include all the authors currently in the Cafe and Bookstore with recent reviews before Christmas. I won’t be taking any new authors until the New Year now and already have some terrific ones lined up.
The Cafe and Bookstore is seven years old now and time for a revamp for 2021. The book fair has been a great opportunity to update the authors on the shelves and I have some more details to add to them to provide more comprehensive information.
Next year I also want to go back to the Blogger Daily at least three times a week as I know I have neglected to get around your blogs as much as I would like. I am going to tie this in to the authors in the Cafe so that I can take another opportunity to promote your books.
Anyway more on that in the New Year..
In the meantime as I have been into author’s Amazon and Goodreads, I have noticed that there are some missed opportunities. Here is a quick check list.
- Make sure that your bio is on both US and UK Amazon author pages. They will put books up, but not your bio from your country of origin.
- Some books are missing from author pages and also on Goodreads and need to be claimed through your author central page.
- Some authors are not linking their blogs to their twitter so posts about their books or promotions not going there automatically.
- I found quite a few Twitter accounts without a pinned tweet, which is very useful to expand your profile, or to promote books or blog.
