A Question & Free Book Offer Regarding Showing Book Photos and Links in the Blog Page

Hi, everyone. I just released my twelfth book, and the next one should be coming out in a couple of weeks or so. I know how to embed the link for the Amazon listing and photo of each book in a regular post, but they get buried out of sight as soon as I post something else. I’m seeing a growing number of bloggers who have found a way to have their books or those of others show up  in the right column (I believe as image widgets) so they are always visible regardless of which post is being read. I would love to have someone help me to make that happen for my blog. I’ve tried a whole bunch of things and even got possible/probable directions from another blogger, but haven’t been able to make them work after many tries. The error is likely mine rather than an error in the directions.

Is there someone who is willing and able to help me get my books listed on my blogs in my primary widget section so they are always visible? I will be happy to send a free signed copy of one of my books (of their choice) to the person who helps me to actually get my books listed in this way on my sites.

My email address is russtowne@yahoo.com. My phone number is 408-364-6987. As for time zones, I’m in California and am typically reachable from about 9am until sometime between 5 and 10pm weekdays, and weekends often from 10am to 5pm.

Thank you in advance for any help that you may be able to provide!

With love,

    Emailed… hope it helps.

  2. Hi Russ, I can tell you how to do it but if Sue’s works there’s no need to, so let me know. BTW Your side bar is very full already so you’ll have to just let the info go further down, if you want your books up where they’re more likely to be seen… Diane

      I did indeed, with a lot of support from my friends! I just realized that line should part of the inscription on my tombstone: “He treated life as a great adventure and got a lot of support from his friends.”

      Thank you, Misifusa! I’ve actually released a 13th book but have been so busy with other things that I haven’t even created a post about it yet. I plan to spread the word about it in a week or 3.
