Indie Authors Are You Taking Advantage of Shelfari?

Yeah I know, another social networking site to set up a profile on and keep track of?

But for authors, this one is signif­i­cant. Shel­fari is similar to GoodReads, but it's part of the Amazon​.com empire and the extra data you get entered there will show up on your book pages at Amazon​.com and in some cases on your author page (you have set up an author page at Author Central haven't you? For both .com and .co​.uk?)

You can't really push for reviews on Amazon​.com, but you can on Shel­fari. It will also let you link to your existing social networking friends. You can even help other authors by editing the info on their books.

What? You expected me to say something interesting here? That's what the blog posts are for.

Eoghann has often wondered if people read these little bio things we have to fill out everywhere on the internet and, assuming they do, why?

  1. I feel sorry for poor Shel­fari. It's a great site but I always seems to forget about. Thanks for the reminder. Hope­fully, I'll be able to get out of the habit of viewing it as an after-thought.
