WHAT THE HELL

Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

That Part Where is live — check it out!

ThatPartWhere_Kevin-Brennan

My feature at That Part Where is live now, and looks great! To reiterate, at this site you get to highlight a scene from your book — any scene at all — set it up with text that you write, and link to a purchase site and other places where you have a web presence. With any luck, someone new finds your book and buys it.

The good folks at That Part Where also do some promoting for you via their Facebook page and Google Ads.

All for $10.

Let me know what you think, and spread this around too! Reblog this post, tweet it, tell your ma, tell your pa, sing it from the nearest hilltop!

You get my heartfelt appreciation if you do.

    I’m looking forward to when you break down the numbers on this one and let us know if you see any bump in sales.

      Yes. I guess it all depends on who is clued into the site at this point, or how authors get the word out about it. For now, it’s just another thing that can be done to find new eyeballs.

    This is so cool! This new website, That Part Where, is a great place for authors to promote their books and for readers to find new books. Take the path through Kevin’s post to find out more 🙂

      Best of luck with it, and let us know if it got results!

        haha…so far I have sold two books. The ad is down now. They only keep it up a few hours unless you are the featured book of the day. It is Saturday, and most likely everyone was still in bed that early this morning. I am not complaining. That is two books that I had not sold yesterday. Two more readers. Unless I see more later today.

        How are you doing this morning? After being in the 250,000 s for months, I woke up to this:
        Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #2,573 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)

        #35 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Literary Fiction > Historical
        #97 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Historical Fiction
        #100 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Historical

        Everyone has told me that Ereader News Today is the best. That was overnight. I am truly amazed. I am certain, if I get reviews out of this, some of them won’t be good. There will be people who have issues with it, especially since it is right down the middle with some political issues.
        I still want to try your site after this promo and Read Tuesday are over. Don’t really know what else to do to keep up the momentum.

        No sales whatsoever here. Boo hoo.

        Try Ereader News Today. Have you got 10 reviews yet? Do you have a 4.0 or higher? If so, you qualify. They take a very small percent of sales. Exposure is phenomenal. I have sold more in one day than in my entire 9 month history with this book, seriously, 86 copies overnight. 40 more today. They have 140, 000 Facebook viewers that they also put your ad in front of and that is when my sells took off.

        I’ll try them as soon as my book shows up on Sony and Kobo, for max. exposure.

        Their submission form is a little vague as to where to put a description or review quotes. Did you just use the “additional information” box?

      • sknicholls
        December 8, 2013

        They choose what reviews they are going to post and I believe they pull your book description from Amazon. After reading what they feel is offensive I made a comment to them in additional info about the Negro speak in my book as some find it offensive, but that was not a problem for them. You give them your ASIN and track your sells through Amazon’s KDP. You might get sells on other platforms, I don’t know, I will have to check with my independent publisher on whether or not the promo trickled over. (He holds my smashwords, Kobo, Apple, and all of those and I get a 33.3% royalty) You tell them the date of your promo and they don’t guarantee that your book will be posted on their site during your promo.

    OK, I’ve reblogged this post which means that it will also show up in Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Tumblr. But I’ve also check out the website and tweeted, facebooked, and Google+-ed your page. Too much? Actually, the website is pretty cool. I really like how it’s laid out. It looks like it can be a great resource for readers, for people looking for a new book, the kind of website that indie authors really really need.

      Wow, Marie, your network is comprehensive! They say people don’t buy something till they’ve seen it in seven different settings, so I think we’re covered now…😝

      I agree TPW seems like it has great potential. I hope it really takes off. Starting today!

        Well, my network only looks impressive because WordPress makes it easy to link up to these other outlets. Truth be told, I spend the max of my time on WordPress. I don’t spend nearly as much time on the other accounts, but at least they are there 🙂

    I posted a site this morning that you can promote your book on. Red Clay and Roses is live there now. Here is another one by Kevin Brennan where his book, Yesterday Road, went live this morning.

    Interesting site. Thanks for the info!

    Looks great. I didn’t read it because I am not at that part of the book, but I was impressed by the page.
