About This Blog

This blog was created in the hope of giving authors another outlet to get some promotion for their book, and at the same time give their potential readers a central place to find more information about them.

I’ve not been on Twitter very long, but in my short time retweeting authors I’ve noticed a few things:

  • Some authors don’t appear to have an online presence (at least not one they talk about much) so their audience is limited to Twitter users
  • Not everyone likes to use a social network; it can feel too inclusive
  • A few authors rarely tweet about themselves as they don’t want to self-promote so readers are unaware of where to buy their novels
  • Even those that do have a website don’t have many people linking to them or the website is difficult to navigate
  • Sometimes when authors tweet their links they have errors and that can be frustrating for readers to find out where they’ve been pointed to

The majority of authors I see on Twitter don’t have these problems at all, or there are other issues that I haven’t covered here, but it made me wonder if I could possibly help authors other than just tweeting here and there?

And so, it’s with a great delight that I present The Novel-List! The idea is that an author will send me details of their book and perhaps say a bit about themselves (full details available on the Submit Your Book page), and I will in essence be giving them an opportunity to reach a potentially wider audience.

I hope authors and readers a-like will enjoy this blog. Feel free to retweet, reblog, Like, and Share posts from authors you personally want to spread the word about.

Thank you for reading what I have to say. 🙂
