Pinterest for authors? With most of what we do being in written word, you might think using a social platform that is based on images may not apply to you. It does.

Not only do you have your book cover, but you can post other images that might work for settings within your book, or post other similar, well published books to give readers an idea of what style you write in.

Pinterest is dominated by women, so if you are in the Romance genre, this platform may prove to be one of your best. So get in there and start making pin boards and put up some images to generate curiosity to your book and website.

And speaking of website, you can incorporate the “Pin-it” app that allows your visitors to pin images within your website to their boards. That is how you get marketing done for you.
