Angela Fristoe | 3 comments Just wondering will the tags that are on my Kindle version carry over to my paperback version once Amazon links the two together? Should I wait on tagging them until they are connected?

Reena Jacobs (reenajacobs) | 66 comments My tags and reviews are all lumped together (Kindle & Print versions).

Angela Fristoe | 3 comments Thanks! I just wanted to be sure that tags weren't going to disappear if I put them in before they were merged.

James DeSalvo | 11 comments I used to belong to a tagging group. I did notice a difference between Kindle and paperbacks on one of my books.

Nancy Jarvis (screalwriter) | 54 comments When are they going to merge? Will reviews carry over as well? My books are also available in large print; it would be great if all tags and reviews carried to all versions.

Sofia Gabel (sofiadianagabel) | 11 comments I noticed that my tags on the print version of my book didn't carry over to the Kindle version, but the reviews did. Go figure!

Hampieroberts roberts (hampie206528) | 17 comments I have a self-published book. How do I tag it? It only shows up when I give the title or my name. It is a western historical romance.

Lauren Grossman (laurenbgrossman) | 40 comments I had an idea and wondered if my friends at Goodreads would be willing to help me out. Four months ago I paid to have a book trailer made. It turned out great. In the 4 months I have had 840 visits and 24 comments. I may have made some book sales through it – that’s hard to tell.

I asking if all of you would please click onto this site: , and, if possible, leave a comment. That would help me rise up the Youtube ladder. Additionally, I’m requesting that you share the website address onto your Facebook page, Twitter, blogs, etc.

I don’t believe that a book trailer could possibly go “viral” – that only happens to people who burp the Star-Spangled Banner. But it would be a great experiment. Obviously, this request is not completely altruistic – it’s possible I may get some sales out of it. But, we could then all help each other in the same way, since we are all in the same boat.

My thanks to those of you who do this and please let me know your book’s name (website, Amazon link- if you’re an Amazon Associate, etc).
