You learn something new every day…
How many times have you heard somebody say that jokingly – but I learned something new today.
I learned about booklinker.
Let me tell you a bit about it.
Just take a look at this book link.
Just your standard Amazon book link. You click it – and I know you did – and it takes you right directly to my Christmas story SHOTGUN CHRISTMAS – where it is listed on Amazon.com.
Now – as most of you folks know, Amazon.com is the AMERICAN branch of Amazon. So if you live in the UK, say – then that book link would not be helpful at all.
Same thing goes for those folks living in Australia, Germany, Japan and the like. The book link – all by itself – is useless if Franz in Switzerland decides that he wants to buy a copy of my e-book.
So – take a look at THIS BOOK LINK!!!
You might not notice the difference if you clicked it from the US – but if you lived in Germany and clicked it that link took you RIGHT to the Amazon.de – the Amazon Germany site. Same thing would happen if you clicked onto that link and were living in Australia. That link would send you right to the Amazon.com.au – the Australia site.
Do you see what I am getting at?
That second link is a freaking magic transporter that will take you to the Amazon website in the country that you are living in.
Incidentally – the book SHOTGUN CHRISTMAS is price-matched to free in the US – so any of my US readers can grab a copy today for free. I am still trying to figure out how to make that e-book free on the other Amazon pages.
Give me time.
SO – how did I make that super-cool magic-transporter link?
I signed up with booklinker.net!
It doesn’t cost a dime and is easy to figure out – and once you have got your books entered you can use those wicked cool magic-transporter booklinker links ANYWHERE that you want to.
You can use it on Facebook, on Twitter, on your Blog – anywhere that you need a link. No more will you have to post a separate link to each separate Amazon book site. One link does it all.
I think that is pretty freaking cool. I have bookmarked that booklinker right onto my toolbar and I intend to reach for it EVERY TIME that I want an Amazon link for one of my e-books.
I hope that you find it useful too.
yours in storytelling,
PS: You can ALSO use booklinker to create super-cool magic-transporter links to your author page – LIKE THIS ONE!
