Influential websites are emerging to drive readers to your books.


Looking for the hottest places on the web to promote your books? Here are a few that I’ve discovered in the past few months that are developing a strong presence on the web. I’ve taken information from their sites (when I could find it).
“WeekinRewind.comoffers a daily dose of the week’s best free and bargain books on the Kindle and on the Nook. We are aggressive in how many authors we feature because that’s what our readers expect. For authors who need promotion sooner than later, WeekinRewind is critical, particularly given our considerable reach with avid readers. You’ve spent months or years writing your book, but now you need to publicize it. Otherwise, how will people find it?
Currently, we have almost 170,000 people who visit the sites each month. We also have over 9,000 Facebook fans and over 18,000 Twitter fans. And we have over 400,000 page views! All of these fans are avid readers and they can help give your book the push it deserves, particularly if they like the post (which we encourage them to do) and thus help to make your post go viral. This could mean a landslide for authors as word-of-mouth on social media is a key way to drive people to your book.”
WEEK IN REWINDis featuring my book“Ever-Flowing Streams” as this week’sPromotional Giveaway. Hop over and explore site.
E Reader News Today (Tips, Tricks, and Free ebooks for your Kindle)
With over 20,000 followers, this is a very powerful site for promoting book sales. Here’s the link to the Book of the Day feature for DEVIL MOON: A MYSTIC ROMANCE
“If you’re wondering who we are, rest assured that you’re not the first one to wonder about us.
We are just a couple of cheap chicks – wait, that doesn’t sound quite right. We are just a couple of ladies who love expensive things when the price is reduced to 80% or less of original price. Our grandmothers called it being frugal or thrifty. For a period of time, that fine art of stretching the dollar was lost by most, but today, it’s the new cool.
Since you’re here at DailyCheapReads, you’re part of the new cool, too.
Every day, we list cheap reads available for your Kindle e-reader through Amazon. We guarantee no book will ever be priced over $5. At least once a day we post a SuperCheap read for less than $2. We also post FREE books as soon as they become available. The only thing better than cheap is free.”
Here’s the promo they did for
Another high volume bargain ebook site with over 28,000 Facebook followers. I haven’t gotten on their site yet, but I’ll keep trying!  Here’s what author Donna Fasano had to say about it:
“Pixel of Ink has featured two of my books as Bargain Bin buys, and after just a few short hours, both of them hit the Kindle Movers & Shakers list. One of them made it to #3! Pixel of Ink is The Best Friend any 99-cent book can have.”
- Donna Fasano (Author of Taking Love in Stride and The Merry-Go-Round)
These are just four sites that emerging as leaders. As more readers purchase e-readers, there will be more entrepreneurs jumping into a growing market. I hope you have found some good information here. Of course, I invite you to check my books on the sites and at Author’s Den.
