My 'Top 100 Websites for Author Promotion and Book Promotion' took me hours, over a period of two weeks, and required a lot of motivation to complete. I thought this was not the way I wanted to spend my time as a writer and I was sure other writers felt the same. Consequently, I put this on three places on the web where I thought it would benefit other authors.
The results of doing this have been really positive. People are posting lots of great messages, I have connected with people and the number of visits to my website has more than doubled. On Wednesday someone visited once every 5 minutes which stuns me. Finally, it is really good feeling when you know you have helped other people.
I'll now have to think of ways I can help more readers read my books!
