Hello and Happy Friday, Friends! Today, I’m proud to bring you an awesome guest post by chick Lit author, Dee DeTarsio!
Author, Dee DeTarsio
The Fussy Librarian
There’s a new kid on the block trying to give marketing sites like BookBub and Book Gorilla a run for their indie author money, The Fussy Librarian: http://www.thefussylibrarian.com/
“The Fussy Librarian is the first website to match readers not only with the genre of books they like but also their preferences about content. Do you only read mysteries without profanity, violence and sex? Then we’ll tell you only about cozy mysteries. Read just memoirs and gory horror novels? No problem.
We also only bother with the good stuff so you know you’ll see great reads every time you open our daily email. There’s a reason we’re called The Fussy Librarian, after all.
So sign up today and start enjoying great books. We’ll take care of the rest!”
Authors, The Fussy Librarian seems to be a user friendly (and cute!) site. As they try to grow their reader list, they are looking for authors and are promoting books for FREE, for a limited time.
In exchange for not charging a submission fee, The Fussy Librarian is asking authors to paste the following paragraph on their Facebook page, or blog, if you don’t have an author’s page. They have found that posting on FB, blogs and reader discussion groups is more effective for them than Twitter — and they say it drives a ton of traffic to their website, which means more readers!
Chick Lit author Dee DeTarsio shared The Fussy Librarian’s Pitch to readers:
There’s a new website that gives readers their very own personal librarian. You type in your email, tell them what kind of books you like to read and how you feel about profanity, violence and sex in novels. Then a daily email comes with your ebook recommendations. They’re featuring my book soon and they’re supportive of authors like me, so I hope you’ll support them and sign up! www.thefussylibrarian.com
By posting the pitch to readers, The Fussy Librarian is offering “a free submission after we start charging. You can use it when we have 50,000 readers or wait until we have 500,000. (Limit: One free submission per author.) We look forward to working with you in the future to help you find new readers!”
**Dee’s novel, Ros, will be featured on The Fussy Librarian, Friday, October 25th (TODAY), for a special price of $0.99. She’ll keep us posted how it goes! Good luck!**
