Links to Writing & Marketing Blog Posts

I just discovered the Author Marketing Club. If you haven’t visited this site, I encourage you to stop by for a visit. With the AMC Premium membership you have access to three powerful tools:

  • Amazon Description Generator
  • Book Widget Creator
  • Amazon Reviewer Grabber  

Check out my book widgets. They were created using the tool on this site. The description generator is amazing. Your book descriptions can have headers and colors. Unfortunately, if you’ve edited your descriptions in Author Central you can’t use the tool. I contacted Amazon last week about problems I was having editing the description in KDP. I was told to make the edits in Author Cental. Oops. Now, I can’t use the enhancement tool that gives you an opportunity to make your descriptions pop.

With the Amazon Reviewer Grabber you can enter a word like “romantic suspense” and the application will generate a list of top reviewers who have reviewed books similar to yours. If email addresses are available, the application will populate a list. You can then send individual emails to the reviewers to see if they are interested in reviewing your book.

This is a cool site. Check it out.
