Commenting on Blogs: The Easy Way for New Writers to Build Platform

  by Anne R. Allen.  I’ve seen a steep decline in the number of people commenting on blogs over the past few years. I’m not sure why that is. But commenting on blogs is still an easy, painless way to get your name into search engines and build an “author platform.”

By Melodie Campbell. I’m not talking about a room of your own, with all due respect to Virginia Wolf.  (Although that is certainly handy.  Writing your early stories on the floor of the bathroom with your kids outside shaking the locked door gets tiresome pretty fast.) But today I’m talking about what I tell the…

Small bookstores are booming after nearly being wiped out

NEW YORK — A growing number of shoppers will be supporting their independent neighborhood bookstores on Small Business Saturday. After nearly being wiped out a decade ago, small bookstores are booming.

Dane Neller, the owner of Shakespeare & Co. in New York City, just opened his third indie bookstore, and he’s proving the naysayers wrong.

“Bookstores are back and they’re back in a big way,” he said. “I’m not giving to to hyperbole — it was record-breaking for us.”

The Manhattan sanctuary is part of a resurgence of independent bookstores nationwide. Customers who visit the story can stumble upon a new author or linger over a latte while a special machine can print a book in three minutes if it’s not in stock.

The rebound comes after years of competition from deep discount superstores and online behemoth Amazon, which together turned small shops into an endangered species.

According to the American Booksellers Association, …read more :

BookNet: Canada’s Book Club Memberships Have Doubled This Year via @pubperspectives

In its new report on Canadians and book clubs, BookNet reports that celebrity and the search for ‘the new Oprah’ is not as strong as many might expect. Some say they’re there to ‘talk about life.’

By Porter Anderson, Editor-in-Chief | @Porter_Anderson

Club Members Said They’re Not in It for the Wine

[dropcapT[/dropcap]he BookNet Canada statistical research service reports that between 2018 and the first three quarters of 2019, “the percentage of Canadian book buyers who belong to a book club or reading group jumped from 7 to 14 percent.”

As the organization points out, the driver may be assumed by many to be celebrity. BookNet itself has a page of articles from the last two years, each headlined with a “new Oprah?” question—”Is Obama the New Oprah?” and “Is Jenna Bush Hager the New Oprah?” and “Is Reese Witherspoon the New Oprah?” and so on.

But, in fact, the old Oprah may have less to worry about than such giddy excitement might indicate.

“Results from BookNet Canada’s surveying of Canadian book club members,” according to media messaging, “shows that less than half (47 percent) are members of a celebrity book club.

“Among these, Oprah reigns supreme (46 percent), followed by Emma Watson (26 percent), Emma Roberts (20 percent), and Sarah Jessica Parker and Reese Witherspoon tied at 17 percent each.”
