If you’ve read a book that you think deserves some attention, here are 12 ways you can spread the word. Just pick one! (This post is linked up to The Bullying Antidote.)
- The best way to help is to write a 5-star (it’s important to rate it as 4 or 5 stars) review anywhere… but Amazon.com is the most influential place. The reviews only need to be a sentence or two, highlighting what you liked about the book. This should only take a few minutes.
- Mention the book on Facebook (be sure post a link to your review there, too).
- Praise it on Twitter and don’t forget to use hashtags! (Like #bullyprevention, #bullyingantidote, etc.)
- Write a blog post about it, or suggest it as a subject to a blog writer you know. (Ask for a free review copy if necessary.)
- Re-blog one of the author’s blog posts or pages, or forward to someone you think might be interested.
- Recommend it to teachers, administrators, PTAs, and religious educators if it can be used in classes.
- Write an article about it for a magazine or newspaper.
- “Like” the author’s Facebook page or their book page.
- Write a review on Goodreads.
- Discuss the book in your book club.
- Encourage people you know to buy it as a Christmas or birthday gift.
- Pin the cover or a quote on Pinterest, or share on any social media sites using share buttons, found everywhere.
