I've been seeing this more and more, where authors don't link their books to retailers, they just show a picture of, even worse, the picture and the ISBN.  Make sure your books are easily found on all devices (sidebars frequently go away in mobile) and that the buy buttons are pretty prominent.
Many authors make this simple mistake, and correcting it can dramatically improve their online book sales. Here's what you have to do. Continue reading →

This is pretty basic, but I see a lot of authors make this mistake.  I know not everyone is a webmaster, but it is essential to link your books to retailers.  Here's a little on why you should, and how you can do it.

It seems like a no brainer, but the number of author websites that don't do this is staggering.

A number of authors have asked me about Pinterest.  They pin their cover art to a few boards -- but then what?

So, I brought over +RunWiki , a top fitness blogger, to discuss how she uses Pinterest to drive 20,000 unique visitors (and growing!) to her site every month.

Not sure what an "Author Platform" is or how to get started building one?  This might help.
A functioning platform is essential for an author to sell books online. However, there are few things in publishing right now as confusing as what an "author platform" actually is. Here we lay out not only what they are, but what they can do and how you can get yours started in 4 easy steps. Continue reading →

Good to see there is a radio option for those who like that option.  However, using the updated version, the features/options/services for managing and listening to your existing music have been significantly deprecated on the player.

Why did this happen?

Google Music was one of the better apps out there -- maybe even the best one -- to listening to your own music.  The library management, syncing, and especially the "instant mix" feature were all top rate.

Now, they're barely there.  You can't even buy music from the app anymore.  Imagine -- a music app where you can't buy music?  Sounds absurd, but, here we are.

I can see on the Google Play support forums that many others are up in arms about these changes.

I have to ask, what was the rationale behind gutting the existing Google Music App in order to tack on this radio player?  Why not just make a separate app?  Or at least a separate division in the app specifically for radio?
