Authors! Change Your Records!

If you are keeping a list of review possibilities for your next book as I suggest in The Frugal Book Promoter, it is update time. I can't keep you informed on every change that comes up but there are times when it seems essential. Library Journal is one of those powerhouse magazines that can make a difference for your book, so here is its new address:


Library Journal
160 Varick St., 11th fl.
New York, NY 10013

For those of you new to this review game, address changes are just one of the picky little things that can trip you up.

Yep, not keeping a contact list is another.

But there are many others. And, if you want reviews for your book, you'd better know them. Find them in The Frugal Book Promoter. Just look up "reviews" in the index and find references to evrything including how to get reviews in some places even though your book is already published. You'll also find information at www.budurl.com/WritersResources. Look for the link that takes you to the page with review suggestions on it.
