Tips Direct from the SharingwithWriters Newsletter

I am newly in love with Pinterest. The more I get to know it and the more it changes, the more suitable I find it for promoting books. Here is a recent tip from the SharingwithWriters newsletter and if you'd like to receive the next issue with more Pinterest ideas and some great editing ones, too, quick!

Pinterest: Ohmygosh! Pinterest is now even more suited for authors’ promotion. We can now determine which image goes at the top of our boards (often that will be your book cover or something very closely related!). Go see what I’ve done with my boards at http://Pinterest.com/chowardjohnson. Know that once you've opted in for the new interface, the featured image at the top of each board doesn't change until you change it. It's great for branding.  It's a marketing miracle!
