    Great ideas, Fabio! I’ve done some of these for one of my favorite authors. I should go do it for others.

      Hi, Jen! I designed and customized the site myself. Those rusty computer skills came in handy. Glad you liked the site and the list!

    Hi Fabio! I have to agree. You did a fabulous job on your site. It isn’t easy putting one of these together. You did a lot of work. It’s beautiful.

    This was a very timely post with so many of our WANA friends releasing books right now. You gave us some very helpful advice Fabio so that we can support the author, especially if that author is self-published.

    I am embarrassed to say that I am not on Goodreads. It’s just one more thing that I need to familiarize myself with. But I think what you mention gives us the tools to have good manners with one another. We need to take more time to be considerate to the author by liking there pages, tweeting and sharing on facebook. I’ve got to tweet more often. I’m a little shy on Twitter in regards to conversations. Always something to work on.

    By the way Fabio, what is #ww? I know what #ff is. But not #ww. Help!

    Thank you for this post and I wish you all the best of success with you upcoming release! 🙂

      Karen, I’ve got all these bits of advice from different sources, and I thought we should have it in one place 🙂
      #WW is Writer Wednesday on twitter. A hashtag to promote authors.
      Goodreads is dream website for readers. I love it. It could be faster, but that’s a minor issue. And it’s addictive. You’re going to love it too 🙂
      Thanks for your support!

    Love this breakdown of tips as a reader and an author. Some are so easy that I can’t figure out why people don’t bother with it. I’m all about reviewing and liking an author I adore, knowing every effort is a vote for literacy.

    Thanks for reading and writing,
