I play board games with international knuckleheads online and use the "handle" slang101.com

Any time I'm on the beach or walking around or in a bus or in a cafe, there's a copy of my book or whatever publication I'm working right there in plain site.

There's a lot of stuff you can do for free if you just think about it.

Anybody painted their car with their URL or cover yet?

Another good list, there, Gordon.

Nothingbinding seems a little odd to me. Have you made it work for you?

I would say nothingbinding.com isn't the best book site, but at least I've got a page on it (although it's very hard to find it with the web site's built-in search engine). confused You'd probably be better off going with www.authorsden.com if you havn't already. Smile

I like Authors' Den. It always makes the first page in a Google search. (You can read some of my short stories at my page at http://www.authorsden.com/philwhitley )

If you link to other authors there, you get email alerts when they add something new - but the important (selfish?) thing is, the more hits you get there and the more "subscribers" you have - make the Google bot find you and moves you up on the search pages.

Brew, I like Author's Den as well. Mr. Stodghill is there and recommended it on another board. Based on that, I set up an account with them, and I really like the tracking features it offers. You can view me there: http://www.authorsden.com/zadaconnaway

For a list of over 30 sites of free places to list your book you can look at the one I've compiled. There are also a bunch of other resources for marketing your books or writing online - all for free.
