Mobipocket...

I love google alerts! They keep me in touch with where my books are popping up on the internet. Yesterday I got one for my romantic suspense Destiny's Choices and saw that someone had rated the book 4 stars! Woo hooo! That really made my day!

Every author knows that not everyone is going to like their books, that is just a fact of life. It is something that as an author I've learned to live with, but so far this particular book is getting very good ratings.

Of course the other cool thing is that my book is now available from mobipocket.com and I don't believe it was there earlier in the month so that is good news! The more places it is available the more of a chance the word the gets out.

New Group on YouTube...

Well, I don't know if this is actually going to help or not, people on YouTube don't seem to be as interested in turning it into a social network as say MySpace for example. I friended some people, and I've started a Video Book Trailer Group for people to post their book trailers and so we can discuss the making of book trailers. I've had a few sign-ups on the group, but so far no one has responded to my friend requests.

I think this idea of having channels and turning YouTube into a social network type thing must be relatively new. Hopefully, as I work to get the word out, others will join. I think the group could be a really helpful tool for authors which is of course my main goal. I want to give other authors a new place to discuss book trailers. So, we'll see what happens with it.

Anyone that is interested can sign up here.
