Look at the sidebar to the right of this post to see the newly added widgets from Amazon and Goodreads.
On a Facebook group I learned about adding an Amazon widget that can rotate all an author’s books. I found the link to setting up this widget and followed the instructions, including choosing how I wanted the books to display.
I like this widget because it displays all my books without taking up too much home page space. BUT … I am not sure that people know they can click on the picture of a book to go directly to its page on Amazon.
(Because several of my books have both paperback and Kindle versions, I added a comment on those books to clarify that there was another version.)
Goodreads giveaway for HOW TO SUCCEED IN HIGH SCHOOL AND PREP FOR COLLEGE:
Thanks to the advice in Michelle Campbell-Scott’s ebook Goodreads For Authors: How To Use Goodreads To Promote Your Books, I am doing my first Goodreads giveaway. And as part of this, I have added the giveaway widget to this site.
Now I am having some issues with my books listed on Goodreads — there is a jumble of information with, for example, the description for MRS. LIEUTENANT and HOW TO SUCCEED IN HIGH SCHOOL AND PREP FOR COLLEGE on each other’s Goodreads page instead of the correct Goodreads page.
Although I came across a “combine editions” option on Goodreads, I am still trying to get my books listed correctly. And I have not been able to find a way to contact Goodreads about this issue as authors can contact Amazon via Author Central.
Still, I think these two widgets are cool. What do you think?
P.S. If you are a Goodreads member, click on the Goodreads widget to sign up for the giveaway of 10 paperback copies of HOW TO SUCCEED IN HIGH SCHOOL AND PREP FOR COLLEGE or click here to buy the Kindle format now. The book makes a terrific 8th grade graduation gift!
