Independent Author Resources

I’m rather limited in what I can do today, so I’m feeling bad about not trying to catch up on my blog reader.  I have a feeling that I’m going to have to return on Monday and start where I land.  I do have the time to reveal two new advertising resources for independent authors that I’m going to sign on with:

Novelspot

I found this site on twitter and have been looking over it.  It’s a site for readers that has various services for independent authors:

  • Author Cards/Bios for $25
  • Interviews
  • Reviews
  • Banners for various amounts
  • Personal website
  • ‘Just Out’ section for new releases
  • Author’s Day (still trying to figure this one out)

I’m probably just going to do the review and the Just Out section because I already spent more than I should on advertising in the last week.  That’s my own personal obstacle, so don’t take that as a negative on their prices.  $25 seems to be the norm.

Kindle Mojo

This site was created by a guy named Tom who is also an independent author, so I’d guess he knows the same pains and frustrations that we know.  It’s a simple site to navigate and he has the following services:

  • Free Listing on his Blog; Donating $5 or $25 dollar donation will bump you up the list.  He lists 5-10 books a day.  May take 2-3 weeks depending on how many he has.
  • Daily tweets for $35
  • Permanent Featured Author for $35.  Gives you the Daily Tweet for free.
  • Excerpts for $35
  • Banners for various amounts

I’m probably only going to do the Free Listing with a donation at first until I find out more about the other services.  I’m not sure if they’re $35 as a one shot or per month or whatever.  He does say that he gets 50-100 listing requests a day, so the wait is long without a donation.

Hope this helps a few people and that these sites work for you and me.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
