Summer Shorts is Branching Out

So, it turns out there are now places where a book can have its own page on a social networking site. I got Summer Shorts one on bebo.com for Summer Shorts. My only complaint is that right now you can't list it as a children's book. I had to put it in general fiction. The cool thing is that now your books can have their own blogs, pictures, fans, everything. I like the fact that I can add all the authors once they've become one of my friends. It's all very exciting.

Do you know about Jacket Flap? It's specifically geared toward children's books.

I'm syndicated on it, and I plan to feature books on it whem my press's lovelies start coming out. (It's only $50/week, I reccomend.) Do they devote specific pages, blogs, etc. to the books themselves too? I hadn't seen that feature.

Yes, JacketFlap does have a page for each book. Here's an example for Penguins of Doom:

http://www.jacketflap.com/bookdetail.asp?bookid=1933831030

Currently, you can see the book's cover and usual accompanying information, as well as the book's subjects and links to other editions of the book. People can write comments about the book, and we plan to add the ability for people to include more details about the books soon (other people who make up the book's credits, description, trivia, and more). Please let me know if you have any suggestions for ways to make it better!

Oh, and I forgot, we also include the recent blog posts that mention the book from our Blog Reader's database of 457 blogs.

Again, you'll see an example of this in the right column of the Penguins of Doom page:
