If you review books on StoryOrigin...

🧠 👨‍💻 🎧 5️⃣
If you review books on StoryOrigin, will you look at my book and let me know if I set it up right? Or if there's anything I should do differently?

I'm not asking for a review--though that would be cool too--I just want to know if I should be doing something different.

So far I've only received one interested reviewer--and she has a 4% completion rate!

Learn more about Thomas’s disappearing doubt, Peter’s redemptive restoration, and Nicodemus’s born-again confusion. Find out who Jesus’s first missionary was, how Joseph of Arimathea risked everything for Jesus, and the truth about Mary Magdalene.

I've heard of authors posting their audiobooks on YouTube.

Though I'm not ready to do that, I did post my sample chapter there.

Hashtags and Twitter

I don't go on Twitter much anymore, but I do tweet my blog posts. Should I use hashtags? Are hashtags still a thing?

I scrolled through my Twitter feed and didn't see many of them--maybe one in every 20 tweets.

I also asked Google and got mixed results.

But I'm thinking I'm better off without hashtags.
