Jemma Beckham, author of YA novel The Tormented Witch, says: ‘Oodlebooks makes it easy to grow your very own list of “fans” and be able to communicate with them. Asking people to “sign up and turn my heart to red” is a lovely way of asking for help to grow your fan base via social media. Far better than to keep asking people to buy my book. I found it so easy to use. Now I have a growing list of fans, who I know are interested in my writing, and I can message via my author account with interesting content and any offers or book giveaways. It’s such a win-win.’
Author Ross Hewitt says: ‘I became a fan of Jonathan Lee and ended buying all three of his books and reading them. I wouldn’t have otherwise heard of him, and now I am avidly waiting for his next publication. I loved the site so much that I’ve ended up joining as an author as well.’
There are only two things you need to do
The app includes the option to showcase video book trailers, a ‘share’ link that adds the link automatically to all social media and a shopping cart with the purchase link of your choice − all in one place.
