Maybe I am not the most qualified. Sketch that. I am not the most qualified, but I feel like 40 comments and 250 reads in 15 days on one novel, counts for something. Here is how I spread the word around Booksie about my stories. Check it:

 

  • Have a fun profile! When I'm looking over profiles, because I have to determine the author's personality before I read, I look for profiles that are them. I understand if you aren't colorful and bouncy. I get it! However, even a change in fonts or size helps. My favorite profiles have color, different text, photos, information about the Booksian (mostly, WHY they like reading or writing).
  • Fan people because you like them. I do not appreciate fan requests if it's an "I Fan Back!" deal. I don't find that it means more to me. I would never tell people I'd fan them because they fan me, that's just not sincere. I don't want fans that are attention-hoggers!
  • Broaden your reads. Check out other people. Read their works. If you are friends with them, they'll most likely be friends with you. The more they like you, the more they'll read your work!
  • Use grammar properly. Use the best grammar when posting work. I don't like it rushed and jumbled! I like authors who take pride in their work; they manicure it best as possible.
  • Consider your stories' descriptions. This is the real grabber. Use the best description for your book as possible. I especailly like them when the narrator is the character. Try that out!
  • Be nice. When I see very nice people on other's profiles, I take more interest in them than those that say "yeah", "uh-huh," "sure."
  • Avoid reading requests! Unless the person specifies their like for reading requests, avoid them at all costs! "Hey, I was reading your profile and thought oyu might be interested in my story. It seems to match your writing style!" That's cool. I like those. But not "Yet another request for readers! Check out my book. Bye."
  • Update! We want to know when your story will be up, when you will write a new one, when you will be reading books. I like the NEWS tab. It helps me keep in touch with the people i'm a fan of. I like that!

 

Remember: When you are nice to others, they'll be nice to you. They'll read your stories, notice their potential, and spread the word!!

 

Fun writing!
