First and foremost let me say that 2011 was an amazing year for TTS. I know I thanked the authors and publishers that worked with me when I did the birthday bash but I feel I need to again.
Without your support I really don’t think this site would have done as well as it has.
Now we’re moving on to 2012 and I wanted to talk a little bit about what I have in the works for this site. I want to bring the forums back. Originally we had a free forum and it felt kinda detached from the site so nobody used it. This time I’m going to fully integrate it with the site. That means that readers will SEE what’s going on in the forums every time they visit. Authors will be welcome to post their books there if they choose to do so. I encourage you to as it’s a little easier for me to find books on a forum than a busy facebook wall.
The facebook wall will continue to work as normal with the same set of non-existant rules so feel free to post there as well! Just keep in mind I am bringing back the deals and freebies sections of the site. It’ll be easier for me to list you if you post there.
The chat room! Yes we have a chat room. I think it’s about time we start scheduling some chats don’t you? 2012 will be when we start doing that.
I’m also going to re-vamp the mailing list. If you haven’t signed up, please do! I’m going to be moving the emails over to the new one soon!
I’m also going to make some website graphics. If you’re an author that has been featured or just wanna help me spread the word, you’ll be able to soon by posting a cool graphic on your website!
Same deal with the Boosters program. I’m going to start promoting heavily in the new year ( YES! Harder than I already do! ) so I’m going to make a list of past Boosters. This will allow readers to check out authors that support us and you guys will be able to sport a nifty badge on your site that says you supported us.
Lastly, although I know I’m probably forgetting something. I’m always coming up with stuff to do here… I’m going to start changing the Featured book trailer every 2 weeks and the featured reads once a month. There will be a lot more than 4 as well.
I hope that gets you a little excited! I know I’m excited about all this. You can kinda tell, I’m rambling!
Happy new year from TTS! We’re gonna make this the best year ever for readers and authors!
