Tag It Day! (Contest!)
Thursday, July 21st, 2011

**Remember! The Skull Stealing Fairy contest continues! Post to enter! ~DD

I know you all need something to do today. I have the perfect activity. It’s “Tag It” day! What’s that, you say?

Well, on Amazon.com, they have this marvelous little section on each book’s page entitled “Tags Customers Associate with This Product.” Why is it significant? It’s how customers find the kinds of books they love. The more people who click on the tag, the higher the number of tags it accumulates, and the more likely the book is to appear on one of those searches. Then a reader seeking “cowboy” books, might actually find the author’s cowboy book.

I have several books that could benefit from being tagged. I promise, it only takes a few seconds of time to do it!

* Handy Men has been moving steadily up the list. A few more tags might bump it up a bit more. Click on the link to open the page: Handy Men

* While Begging For It has been accumulating some terrific reviews, it needs help for readers to discover the story. Click on this link to help: Begging For It

* Undeniable is still finding an audience among readers who love a little cross-genre hopping: Undeniable

And then there are the two big books I have coming in September and October. They are both available for pre-order at a reduced price, so it’s not too soon to tell readers about them. Here are the links for you to hop on over and “tag” the hell out of the books!

* Enslaved by a Viking (Kindle) and Enslaved by a Viking (paperback)
* Girls Who Bite

For Girls Who Bite, be sure to open up all 21 tags so you can click on my name. It’s not appearing at the moment because I wasn’t as fast as some of the contributing authors to get my name listed in the tags.

So let me know if you did this and whether it was something you never considered doing before or something you found a total pain in the ass. I do it for authors I love. Maybe you’ll think about it the next time you head to Amazon. Along with heartfelt reviews, tagging can really help.

And because I never ask for a favor without offering something in return, for any of you who post today telling me about your experience, I’ll hold a drawing for a free download of any of my Samhain or Ellora’s Cave books. I’ll name the winner in Sunday’s post, so you have plenty of time to make your way down the list!

Authors, if you drop by today, be sure to leave a link to your book at Amazon in the comments for helpful readers to find!

    I never really thought about clicking the tags. I always do it when I am reviewing. Thanks for the heads up. I will be sure to tag when I am purchasing and for authors I love.
