Just wanted to pass along a quick marketing tip to independent authors who may have a LibraryThing account. You can offer copies of your hard-copy or e-book on Member Giveaways in exchange for reviews by other LibraryThing members. You are in complete control of how many copies you give away and how long the giveaway will be posted on their site. It’s a quick and easy way to solicit reviews and broaden awareness of your book.
If you’re not familiar with LibraryThing and are a book lover, please do check them out. It’s a good way to both catalog your own book collection as well as to find discussion groups on book topics that you enjoy.
