I was trying to describe Pinterest to a fellow conferee this weekend and couldn't find the words. Maybe the workshops affected my brain cells. It's a digital pinboard with lots of pretty pictures. Of course that doesn't explain why a writer should have a Pinterest account as part of her, or his, platform. All I can tell you is, it works. In the "How to Market Your Book" workshop we were told that publishers want to know how much of a following, or platform, you have. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and yes, Pinterest.
The one Pinterest board we have for G8Press is getting us traffic. I guess that's all I need to say. Love it.
Here's the BEST, and most interesting, review of The Avengers, by Mary Findley, I have read.
We've been told he's good for advertising. Makes you wanna read a book, right?
And Pinterest helps with those book sales. It's over 80% female which explains the awesome and friendly community. Just sayin'.
