I’ve just uploaded Sanchin onto YouWriteOn.com. I haven’t got my head round it at all yet, so I’m not sure how it works. But my book is up there and I have my first reading assignment.
I’m keen to see what kind of reviews it gets on there. It’s all been good on Authonomy so far, and I’ve learnt a lot from some of the comments. I’ve made a few changes too, based on what some of the people have suggested. It’s a great place to learn and I’m hoping I will be able to say the same about You Write On.
I have to confess, I’m not that great at the self promotion thing though. I enjoy reading and commenting on other people’s writing, but I’m not good at asking them to read mine in return.
With You Write On I don’t have to do that. From what I can gather, you choose 5 categories you’d like to read from when you first join up and then you’re randomly given a book to read and review from a chosen genre.
For every book you read and comment on, you earn a review for your own book. At least that’s how I think it works. I’ll know more when I’ve had more time to study it.
I’m going to go and have a nosy round on there now and then do a bit more editing on the proof copy of Sanchin before bed.
