Author Buzz is a place where authors can publicise their work. This guide was written to show you some of the ways you can use Author Buzz to publicise your books.

Create a free author profile

Your author profile allows interested readers to follow you and receive updates whenever you have anything to say.

Best of all, we are working hard on a new feature called “my books” which will allow you to list all your books. Once added readers will be able to discover new books right on your profile – your books, specifically.

We wanted to have this ready to go already but we felt it would be better to get things working before we unveiled them.

We have written a guide to using your Author Buzz profile.

Create a free author blog

A great way to publicise your news is to announce it on your very own Author Buzz blog. As soon as you post that news, it will appear in your activity feed and been seen by all your followers.

If you have never branched out into blogging as an author then your Author Buzz blog is a great place to start. Our blogs are powered by WordPress and there are literally thousands of tutorials that can guide you through every aspect of running your blog. Better yet, we write regularly about how to use your blog to build a following (and sell books).
