Amazon Tag Party - 08/30/2012

Welcome to the monthly SFR Brigade's Amazon Tag Party. Please find the list of this week's participating titles below. All you need to do is click on the title and it will take you to the relevant Amazon page. Happy Tagging!

A brief step by step guide:

1.Go to the Amazon buy page (links provided below)

2.Scroll down to the 'Tags Customers Associate with this Product' header. Please be aware that not all the tags show up on the books - you will; need to click 'show all (number of) tags' to see the full list. There's also a limit to how many tags you can agree with - 15 - so choose wisely my young apprentice!

3.Look for these tags: SFR, Scifi Romance, SF Romance, Science Fiction Romance and Paranormal Romance - please feel free to add any extra tags you feel are appropriate to the work (i.e. Space Opera, Military SF, etc.)

4.If the tags are already there, just click on them to add your 'vote'

5.You can also type into the 'your tags' box to add your own (no need to save the page, just type and add)

6. Please also click the 'Like' button next to the title.

7. If you could also take a moment to 'Like' the author's Amazon page too, that would be awesome. :)

PLEASE NOTE! There's been some mention on Twitter by Liana Brooks and Jo-Anne Kenrick about 'malicious' tags , such as 'boycott', 'too expensive' and even 'delete'. While people are obviously entitled to their opinion, suggesting that a book should be tagged 'delete' is just plain nasty. If you happen to see any tags of this kind on a book during the tag party, please could you mention it in the comments and/or if you see a way to report it, then do so. Thank you.

  1. I've heard some rumors (totally unsubstantiated, of course) that Amazon Author pages with 50 or more Likes get elevated in the Amazon hierarchy in some way, possibly getting more attention in Amazon's recommendations.

    Don't know, but figuring it can't hurt, how about a Author page Like party one of these days?

    Now, I'm off to tag and like the books.

  2. Marva, there is a note in the tagging party for people to like the author's page too, but I can easily set up an Author Like party if wanted. I'll post it in the Facebook page. :)

  4. Late to the Tag Party too, but I got them all.

    I second the idea of an Author Like sortee as one alternative to tagging, but I do click LIKE as I'm tagging, too.

    I noticed that not every author has a LIKE button. Anyone know why?
