The BookBuzzr Newsletter
Welcome to the October edition of the BookBuzzr newsletter. Before we provide you with some important feature updates and announcements, we'd like to share a comment made by Avery Kynn who won the latest grand prize of a Kindle. Here's what she had to say: "Playing CoverMatcher is an excellent way to have some fun and work on my memory skills in between other tasks. The game is easy to learn, and even easier to become addicted to. I appreciate the clear, no-fuss structure of the game and the ability to work towards a goal, a book of my choice, that I gladly want to achieve."

A New Technology to Earn Goodwill from Your Readers
As an author you want to build a relationship with your readers. One way to do this is to give your readers something of value when they visit your web page, Facebook page or Twitter page. This could be interesting content, an opportunity to participate in a prize giveaway or something similar.
At BookBuzzr, we've come up with a new technology called 'Goodwill Builder.' The concept works like this: When a visitor comes to your website or blog (or Facebook page), they get to see a message that offers 1,000 free points for use on Freado.com
. When the visitor clicks on the message they are taken to Freado where they can register and use those points in bidding for books or for the grand prize (current grand prize is an iPad.) This feature is available only for subscribers of BookBuzzr Author Pro. Click here
to learn more about Goodwill Builder and get started.

BookBuzzr Games is Now Called BookBuzzr Author Pro
For sometime now, we've been offering a premium version of BookBuzzr wherein you get additional exposure via BookBuzzr Games (i.e. your book appears inside the CoverMatcher game on Freado.com
.) Now, we've changed the name of the set of premium offerings to BookBuzzr Author Pro. The idea is to keep adding more and more cutting-edge bonus book promotion technologies to the BookBuzzr Author Pro offering (such as Amazon Alerts and Goodwill Builder.)"
Here's what author Chetan Dhruve
has to say about his use of BookBuzzr Author Pro - "Recently, I've become very busy with other things and have been unable to promote my book as regularly as I'd like to. I feel guilty for not doing enough to market my book. I rest easy in the knowledge that BookBuzzr Games is constantly doing my marketing for me to a targeted non-fiction audience 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It continues to do the grunt work of keeping my book before the eyes of readers."
