Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

My book is already published should I still use onlinebookclub to promote?

Post by JLC1975 »

I've read reviews online about online book club and it sounds like this service is mostly good for authors who are still in the editing process and haven't actually published their book yet. My book is based on a true story and already published on Amazon. I'm just looking for ways to promote the book. Is online book club a good promotion site or not?

This service is for published books as well.

Yes, this is a good promotion site. Please read the Strict Anti-Spam Rules and the Author FAQ for details. :tiphat:

I think that using this site could help in different ways than other sites and it gives the people in this community to read the book too! So even though the book is published you can definitely promote it here, but if you're not getting the results you want you could always look into more options.

Why did you think this site was best for books that are still in the editing process? Only finished and edited books, usually published already, can be reviewed.

It isn't true. All books can be reviewed here.
