Ever since Amazon created the "Meet Our Authors" Community and limited promotions to this forum in May of 2011, I've noticed a good many readers have commented on how difficult it is to wade through the numerous pages of promotions to find books in their preferred genres.
Since, I've been urging Amazon to create a genre-specific "Meet Our Authors" Communities, but no changes have been yet. Personally, I think it's only a matter of time before this sort of change will be adapted, but in the meantime, why don't we authors begin own genre-specific threads right here in the "Meet Our Authors" Community?
Everyday there are new Kindle and e-book owners and readers who find their way here, so why not make it easier for them to shop for new reading material now?
My suggestion, is to begin the thread with "Genre: What-have-you. Readers in search of such books, please click here. Authors of such books, please post your link and info here."
Again, this is merely a suggestion, but I believe posting genre category first would be the most reader-friendly.
And authors, please post only appropriate genre-related links for each thread. If you're novel is multi-genre or cross-genre, post your information in each genre thread in which it fits.
Well, let's see how this goes.
