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.

  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.
