Erica Verrillo presents Submitting Your Website to Web Directories posted at Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity, saying, “If you have recently launched an author’s website, you may be wondering how to get it noticed. New websites may take weeks to get “crawled” by search engines – a delay which can transform the heady, champagne-guzzling high of a website launch into a nail-biting, pillow-punching pit of despair. Now is the time to list your website on a web directory.”

Book Design

Byteful Travel presents A Key Book Designing Tip: Always Include Reputable Reviews! posted at Aravinda Publishing, saying, “Today, I’d like to share a visual example of something I’ve learned over the last few months: the importance of putting reviews on the back of your paperback! In retrospect this seems fairly obvious, but you may be surprised how many books don’t do it. Reviews are key because they provide extremely helpful “social proof” for the book, and can be key to self-publishing success.”

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of tips and tricks for writers and authors using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
