When a reader who has never heard about you comes to your website for the first time and you present them with a list of your books, how do they know which one to start with?
If it’s a series that’s easy enough. Start with the first book. How about if you have written s number of different books that are not related at all?
The reader could read through each blurb and decide that way – if they stick around that long.
Sci-Fi and fantasy author, Michael La Ronn, has a really cool tool on his website for helping you decide. It starts with a page that asks you a question about the sort of book you are looking for and then presents you with two options; sci-fi and fantasy. Once you make a selection, you are asked one or two other questions and up pops your book recommendation.
We love how fun and playful this tool is, and how it’s a great way to keep readers on the site for a little bit longer.
