9 PLACES INDIE-AUTHORS SHOULD CHECK OUT:
I am super excited about this one!! This site will create a unique page for your book, a book trailor, and blast your promotion to social sites such as Facebook and Twitter. This is FREE for now, but I don't know how long this will last, so Hurry and do it now!! FYI...I did mine yesterday, it says it takes 4 weeks to be live because they are swamped. So, I will post my link on my blog when it is done so you can all see. I have seen others and they were Fab!! Also, it is really easy to do, but he does want something unique about your book...be sure to write a synopsis that is different and has never been used, otherwise he won't post it. I did mine in a text file ahead of time and pasted it in. You should too, in case the site crashes on ya ;)

Cool Facebook Pages for FREE!! PAGEMODO-WIX-BOOKPULSE
Here are 3 groovy sites where you can make a tab for your facebook page for Free!! There are so many cool things on the page too! I have links for my blog, buy links, etc...On Book Pulse, you can even create trivia and give previews and reviews!! You can put in pretty much whatever you dream up with these. I will put the links to mine so you can see what I'm talking about live! all you need to do is sign up for a free account and allow the website to link to your facebook page and you're set. If you aren't good with these types of things, both sites have great tutorials to help you. Just be patient and play with them, don't get discouraged! It took me 3 hours the first time! Now I feel like a pro. You can message me too and I'd be happy to share my limited experience ;)
This site is still baffling to me, but here's what I can say about it...It is Free, Fun and Facebook Friendly! What I mean by this, is that I'm not sure how it works but it does. When I look at my analitics on facebook and blog, it tells me I'm getting traffic from pinterest! What I did was set up a free account and 'Pin' my book, which essentially creates a button you can share. Then I also pinned a few random, cool bookie luvin types of graphics...I haven't been back since. But, somehow...like I said, people are finding me from there somehow, go figure! It is a neat site and when you have time to check it out you should. I'll spend more time there later and let you know what else I discover.
Last (for this Post ha ha) but not least...I have to give some love to my girl Heather at Supagurl Blog Tours!!
