50 Kickass Resources for Indie Authors

I'm familiar with http://www.deanwesleysmith.com, http://www.smashwords.com, http://www.writersdigest.com and of course Goodreads. Any other recommendations you've tried on your own?

Идеи за разгласа на е-книги:

Jimmie wrote:I make my living writing novels. My current top selling book, with a Bookbub ad last December, has 285 reviews on Amazon with a 4.1 average. The sequel, which was released about 8 months ago, has 86 reviews with a 4.5 average. Sales on both always go up after I do a giveaway. My other books also see a rise in sales after a giveaway on any of my books.

My criteria for advertising again with a company is how low of cost per giveaway I can expect. Bookbub is the absolute best, by far, as I end up with less than 1¢ per book given away. I can expect 15 to 20 reviews within a month on 30,000 books given away. On a Librarything giveaway of 100 books, I can expect 2 or 3 reviews, and on a Goodreads paperback giveaway of 5 books (I have done 4 in the last three years) I get one or two reviews. Since the Librarything giveaway is free, it only cost me less than an hour of my time. I don't do the Goodreads giveaways anymore, not enough results for the cost and effort.


Marc wrote:Out in the real world, $119 buys you a paid advertisement with Kindle Nation Daily + Book Gorilla, one of the biggest players in the market. Actually, for books priced FREE, KND does a $29.99 package and you can give away 3-5,000 books each time (this is in my genre, Fantasy). For a 99c Countdown promo with KND you'd move a good few hundred copies, making your money back if not twice or three times over. On a BB advertisement writers are typically making back 10 x their initial investment, often more.


Derek wrote:I spend a lot of time querying both bloggers and top amazon reviewers for reviews and probably I'd say after about 400 queries, I've got ten reviews. So programs like Library Thing's review program where you can get reviews for your books before they come out are absolutely wonderful, because it's free and if you don't get a review, it's still a great way to reach a lot of people all at once. Library Thing is very easy to work with too. They give you the emails and you personally contact each reviewer to send them your book. How cool is that?

"As I walk through frozen sands
Through the flames of burning lands
My feet are torn, they're torn to strands
I will not thirst

As I cross the raging sea
Waves are crashing over me
They drag me down, they drag me down
I will not drown"
