Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
You should always reblog reviews of your book 🙂 In fact, you might post the links on your page “Reviews” …
Great idea, Marie! Though the Reviews page isn’t clicked on very much… (I almost wish we didn’t have access to all the view stats. It’s a little disconcerting at times… 😳)
Yes, but at least it would be a good way for you to keep track of the reviews. Also, I’ve seen other bloggers keep a list of their interviews which could also be a good reference. When I’m considering interviewing a writer, it’s one of the things I look for. Forget about the WP stats. Have you looked at Red Room yet? I’m fairly inactive on it, but I swear that when I do post, I get more views there than I do on WP. And much of the content there is more germane to literary fiction as well 🙂
Thanks for the tip on Red Room, Marie. I’ll have a look. I remember landing on it a while back but I wondered 1) whether I’d qualify for an author page, and 2) whether I wanted to pay $250 a year for the privilege. On the other hand, it might be worthwhile just to be a member, though I have a feeling it would be yet another big pool of writers all looking for readers. Which is the ongoing problem in all of this!
Yes, Red Room is definitely a place for writers but it may attract readers as well. They sell books through the website, even self-published ebooks (http://redroom.com/member/red-room-parlor-tricks/blog/sell-your-ebook-on-red-room). I’ve had some nice and stimulating correspondence with some published writers there and that never hurts 🙂
I see that you have to fork over the $250 in order to sell ebooks. Dang! It’s one of those cost/benefit dilemmas…
But membership for its own sake looks like a good idea.
Really? Maybe I didn’t read the post closely enough. I thought if you chose not to become a Premium member, then Red Room took 30% of the book price. Oh, well, it’s just something to think about. You should spent time browsing through before you make a decision. Since i don’t (yet) have anything to sell, it’s a moot issue for me.
Thanks Kevin. Happy to add another to your growing list of well-deserved reviews. 🙂
Maybe the tipping point is approaching where people actually start buying the book! (Hardy har har.)
