New Amazon Author “Follow” FeatureAmazon has recently added a new feature that answers most reader’s age-old question—How do I know when my favorite author’s new book comes out? Amazon has created a new “Follow” feature they’ve been rolling out over the last month or so, and it and solves this need. When an author releases a new title, he or she now has the ability to send you a little message about a new release, along with a notification. So, its not as in your face as a newsletter might be considered to be, and you can always opt in or out whenever you want. All you have to do is go to your favorite writer’s author page and click the yellow “Follow” button underneath their picture. At that point, you’ll receive an email whenever that author releases a new book. I’ve gone out there myself and followed my favorite authors (practicing what I preach). As far as my readers go, I’ve started to get questions about when The Shadow’s Servant will be coming out. It will be this year, but might slip into early fall a bit (work has been crazy busy.) But, by clicking on the follow button on my Amazon author page, you can get my alert the moment any of writing or novels goes public. Pretty cool, right!?
