This site is designed for three “types” of visitor. Readers, Reviewers and Authors. Hopefully, by creating a synergistic environment the site will grow.
The different types of promotion available:
A post for the book on the day it goes out and then a permalink to the listing on the Book Birthday page.
Indie Book and Author Page
A listing by Title, Genre, Author, etc that includes your book cover, website and where to buy the book.
In depth interview with the author, covering the book they want to promote, writing methods and their ideas about Indie publishing.
All of the above are tweeted, put on Facebook, stumbled and promoted through various forums.
