Permalinks: You need them to expose what you're writing on everything from Twitter to your Website

Lots of the writers who use this alternative review blog to extend the promotional value of their reviews don't know how to use a permalink. I each of them a little tutorial on promoting their participation in this blog, and--by extension--marketing in general. But I neglected to give them this information. I'll rectify that, but in the meantime, thought I should post it here for all my New Book Review readers, reviewers, and authors.

Here's what you do to get a permalink for any post on this blog or about anything else:

·        Go to the blog

·        Find your review--the one you wrote or the one written about your book. Or a review of a book you loved reading that you'd like to spread around.

·        Click on the title.

·        Go to the top of the page where the address appears in the address window. It will be longer than the one you see above and include part of the title of your post.

·        Copy it.

·        Take it to wherever you want to keep a permanent record of your review/promotions (like your Web site, blog, etc) and paste it.

Easy as that. (-:

The New Book Review is blogged by Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of the multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally series of books for writers. It is a free service offered to those who want to encourage the reading of books they love. That includes authors who want to share their favorite reviews, reviewers who'd like to see their reviews get more exposure, and readers who want to shout out praise of books they've read. Please see submission guidelines on the left of this page. Reviews and essays are indexed by genre, reviewer names, and review sites. Writers will find the search engine handy for gleaning the names of small publishers. Find other writer-related blogs at Sharing with Writers and The Frugal, Smart and Tuned-In Editor.
