How to Get the Word Out About Your Favorite Books

A Simple & Anonymous Way to Help Promote Your Favorite Books   

If you want to let others know about a great book that isn't getting a lot of attention, one effective way is to click on the tags found on the Amazon website.  Anyone can do it - you do NOT have to own a Kindle. Where are these tags? When you look up a book on Amazon, scroll down. The tags are after "More About the Author", right under "What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?"

They are titled appropriately: Tags Customers Associate with This Product
(I've provided a screen shot for those who are visual like me)

 * Don't you dare make fun of my arrows!

The big red arrow is pointing to the tags and the small blue arrow is pointing to where you can add additional tags. (You are allowed up to 15 tags per book.)

Tags should be associated with the book or storyline. In Brie Lives Her Fantasy some tags might be role playing, explicit erotica, BDSM, warrior fantasy, red phoenix, etc. It is important that the tags go with the story. BTW, if you see the "delete" tag, that is a not so nice way of saying the book sucked. Don't click on that unless you agree.

By clicking on and creating tags, you are helping others find that book when they search using those words. Be specific and accurate.

It is a simple and effective way to spread the word about your favorite books & Indies!
