Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Promoting Your Ebook

mines is, and the only thing it requires is for you to review it. 

 

Here's the link, and have fun.

I don't know which is more ironic, promoting an Amazon ebook on a Nook forum, or an author not catching a pretty prominent typo on the cover.

I'm enjoying the irony of this post being under a link to an article entitled Promoting Your Ebook: The Importance of Knowing Your Audience. (emphasis mine)

 

I'm rolling my eyes at the idea that a review is required.  Sorry, writer, but that's not really how this works.

I've seen authors do some pretty kooky things in the name of self-promotion. There's a lot of money waiting for someone who can figure out the discoverability issue in books and a way to let authors pay to be 'discovered'.

Authors can pay for PR/marketing firms.  The problem here is that there are a lot of self-pub myths and the majority of self-pubbers don't bother the find out what really needs to be done to write and market a good book.  Good marketing can be done for free, but you have to know what you're doing, and the best marketing is word of mouth, which requires simply (LOL) that you write a good book.

Re: Promoting Your Ebook

I'm amused by what happened when I read a bit of the book and - per the spam in my inbox here - gave pauld an honest opinion of the bit of the book I had time to look at, and pointed out that flogging an Amazon title via spam to Barnes and Noble customers was poorly advised.

 

An honest opinion was apparently not actually what pauld wanted, judging from the grumpy email I got back which spelled grammar as grammer twice, contracted a posessive its as it's, and was just generally unhappy with actual feedback.

Well, when you decide to promote a B&N book, I might just review it for you.  Until then, I wish there was an "ignore" button that actually worked on this forum, though I doubt you'll be back.

I doubt your doubt.  This isn't his first go-round, though the last time around he was spamming people by PM.

I'm still trying to figure out if the book is his or if it is actually made of mines.
