Why Authors Love Votes On Their Books

C.R.Misty, the author of the series, International Boundaries | Book 1: Simple Affair and Book 2: Deeply Bound, writes about why she thinks authors love votes and why they are important for their books.

You are either a writer that has stumbled upon this post or a reader or even someone with a marketing background looking to find a snippet of what's being done to promote. Authors love votes because online websites where books can be published have voting systems built in for readers to vote for books that they like. Some of the sites that do this are KindleScout, Wattpad, and Avon Romance. More votes will increase a books visibility and on some sites could even help the author in gaining a publishing deal.

Avon Romance is a site that also operates under is HarperCollins. This site is a voting one geared specifically to the romance genre. The writer can post their work, either as draft or a complete novel and if a reader likes the story they vote by giving a heart.

Wattpad is a site that is geared for users to write, read and share stories. Readers can vote and comment on the author's work.

Kindlescout is a site geared for kindle users that is from Amazon. It is a voting site just as the others only this one allows writers to submit their books to the site, a sample is made available on the KindleScout website and readers can vote if they like the book. The book sample has 30 days to obtain as many votes as possible and the books that have the most votes when their voting period is over has the chance of gaining a publishing deal through KindleScout.

I encourage you to try out these sites to see what works best for you as a reader and a writer. I also want to mention that these sites also have other perks, some have forums, some have their own news page and some have tools to help authors in gaining specific feedback on their stories. Have a look and explore.

Happy Reading & Writing <3
