Amazon's VERY Useful "Like" Button!

Sometimes an item in my SharingwithWriters newsletter bears repeating in my blog. Everyone loves my assortment of tips but this one is about a new and very useful feature from Amazon--one I don't want you to miss!

Tip:  Did you know Amazon now has “Like” buttons on your book’s sales page? They are similar to Facebook’s like buttons. To learn how they work, check my Father's Day chapbook (www.budurl.com/Imagining ) . Click on LIKE. You'll find it in the segment near the book title. Once you click on it, Twitter and Facebook buttons will show up, too!
BTW, when you use tweet and retweet buttons, adjust the wording on the tweets to appeal to your audience.
