  1. Great post Kat! Very important for authors to follow through. Now if you (or someone) would do a post on Shelfari/Library Thing/Google+. 🙂

    1. I just put the top ones in here, Rasana. Next time, the others. 🙂 Meanwhile, Jim Devitt’s written some posts on Google+. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I happened by Amazon Author Central last night, in fact, and noticed that they’re now offering a custom shortened author page URL. I snapped mine up, of course. 🙂 Are they offering that to everyone now? This was the first time I’d seen it.

    1. I don’t know when they started that, Lynne, but I noticed that when I wrote my tutorial and was quite surprised. It’d be nice if that was the permalink since unfortunately you have to log in to Author Central to get that custom URL any time you want to share it. Unless you’re organized and have it somewhere convenient LOL. 🙂

  3. You make it sound so simple, great stuff. Just when I thought I had everything covered…

  4. Gosh, this is excellent advice – you are of the awesome, Ms. Brooks! Thanks for sharing this information in such an easy and accessible way too! :))

  5. Cool overview 🙂 I’m happy, and surprised, that I can tick them all! I must have been reading and listening! But Goodreads is still mind-bloggling! 🙂

  6. Nicely assembled info to save (mine is every which way, and it’s always good to have on hand). I’m sending a glass of cyber champagne to help ease the pain of the blinding wedding ring.

  7. Fantastic ‘how to’ for an author’s instruction manual. Liked, Tweeted and will recommend this to other authors. Thanks for this!

  8. Excellent post, Kat; as usual, you make things appear less complex than they actually are and, as usual, it’ll take me a minute or so (more like half a day) to stumble my way through and connect the dots. I’ve got most of it going (sort of) individually; it’s just getting it all to work in concert.

    1. Thanks T.D.! Well, half a day – you know, it took me time to figure all this stuff out, stumbling my way through some of it. The beauty of it is, once you set it up, you’re done. Thanks for taking the time to stop by. 🙂

  9. I coach authors how to get on TV and your advice is just what is needed to establish a platform that will make you appealing to a TV producer. Thanks, Edward Smith.

  10. This was very helpful, and I liked your funny intro. I’m learning so much from this blog and appreciate it a lot!

  11. Hi! I’m still unpublished (working on getting there), so there’s only so much I can do. However, I did just recently go over 100 likes on my FB page and was able to use this tutorial to change the user name! Now it looks short and pretty! Thanks so much! And, even better, I can start checking out your tutorials here on your site. Once I get published, I can use that knowledge to really set up an awesome author platform! Thanks!
