Authors I need your book

I'm launching a new website in two weeks time, called 'My Kindle Book's Name is...' which will feature my titles, but I need more books to fill it out.

The main page will have a list of genres which will lead to a list of books that will show a cover and a few lines, four at most, of descriptive text about the title. There will also be a link to your title on Amazon.

There's no charge or obligation to the author and there's no advertising on the pages with the exception of my website design services.The links will remain there as long as the website lasts.

If you want more information then you can email me at linkmybook@kindlebooks.name

I'm promoting the website with 10k hits a month targetted at eBook readers through cheapwebtraffic.net and hopefully I'll get web design work from that and authors should get sales from this as well. cheapwebtraffic.net works fine for me on my other website and I'm selling on average 50 titles a month.

Let me know what you think.

Regards

Tom

I'm in if you do memoir. Sounds like a good idea.

Sounds ok. I have joined similar efforts by other authors. Sites such as World Literary Cafe, Free Kindle Books, Indie Kindle, are springing up all over the internet to try and promote Indie authors.

I wouldn't spend too much on the website design.... because what you have yourself there is a nice trademarked domain.

Amazon have proven to protect their trademark quite vigorously, I know people who have had domains ceased for using 'Kindle' in them.

A few seem to have escaped the net though.

Would you consider a list of books? I have 12 short stories for children on Kindle ebooks. I am writing more too. Were you only wanting one book? I could choose one if so.

I already have a website where I do exactly that. I promote indie writers but, and there is a but, I don't put just anyone on it. They are writers I have read and liked. We are all interactive on a regular basis. We are just on the last chapter of a book the 5 of us wrote. Each took a turn writing a chapter while carrying on the story. A crazy but funny story that we intend to publish with proceeds going to Sea Shepherd!

I suppose it depends on whether you have any restrictions as to the standard of work you are going to host? I write Regency Romance as well as Time Travel with comedy in both.

Always welcome to visit my site web to compare...

If you do monitor the standard of work, I would be happy if we linked up (or other). Feel free to contact me. Always open to ideas!
Suzy :)

From your book's title:

[i]Operation Werwolf[/i]

I know that "Werwolf" is the German spelling, but readers may just assume that you simply cannot spell "werewolf."

Maybe a quick mention of this in your blurb?

Sorry it's the editor in me, and in those blasted readers out there . . .

**I know that "Werwolf" is the German spelling, but readers may just assume that you simply cannot spell "werewolf."**

It's not only the German spelling--it's the correct spelling!

I appreciate that werewolf is more common, but it's like chaise lounge--it's just plain wrong, and it grates me every time I see it.

Just as chaise longue (long chair) became twisted by English speakers who don't know French and decided that it's a lounge chair, so has werwolf been twisted by people who don't know that wer=man in Old English so they figure that it must mean he were a wolf, ouch.
